Fun Fact

The earliest known prosthetic device was an artificial big toe, formed and fitted to an Egyptian noblewoman around 900 BC.

Plastics are used to deliver a wide range of orthopedic solutions, orthotics and prosthetics, from braces to protect elbows, hips, and knees, to devices for surgical implantation in joints, hands, feet, spine and more. The use of plastics by device designers and makers has resulted in products that are lighter, stronger, and even more lifelike than ever -- mimicking natural parts, in areas such as energy return, flex and strength, and increased grip and friction. Polymershapes can provide you with advanced plastic materials from the world’s top manufacturers, including UHMW, HDPE, LDPE, Polypropylene, and many others, that flex without fracturing, resist shrinkage in production, and are easily and consistently molded and formed.
