Composite Materials in Medical Applications

Our composite materials are used in the manufacturing of podiatry, orthopedic braces, and insoles. These devices can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including injuries, deformities, and chronic conditions such as arthritis. The use of our composite materials has led to the development of products that are able to provide optimal support and function for users, while also being durable and long-lasting.

The advantages of Toray CFRT® composites in podiatry, orthopedic braces, and insoles: perfect fit and lightweight

One of the main advantages of using composite materials in podiatry, orthopedic braces, and insoles is their ability to be customized to the specific needs of the user. Composite materials can be molded and shaped to create devices that fit the individual's body perfectly, providing optimal support and function. These materials are also lightweight, which is important for devices that need to be worn for long periods of time.

In addition to their customization and lightweight properties, composite materials are also durable and resistant to wear and tear. This is important for devices that are used on a daily basis and need to be able to withstand the stresses of use. Composite materials are also resistant to corrosion, which is important for devices that may be exposed to moisture or other harsh environments.

Case study: OrthoGolfer Elite®

OrthoGolfer Elite® is the first over-the-counter golf “orthotic” specifically designed to aid players in correcting their stance and perfecting their golf swings: allowing golfers to swing smoother, drive further, and reduce slices.

Toray PMC’s materials were selected for this application to achieve a lightweight, thin profile.
