Benefits For Referring Physicians

Increase Traffic/Patient Volumes to Clinic

ActivArmor™ is the first watersafe, custom fit/designed/fabricated orthosis available in the US Market and has patients demanding it across the country and the world. Being an ActivArmor™ providing clinic increases patient referrals and throughput as patients seek the product out directly and physicians are making referrals to certified clinics. Clinics are viewed as innovative, and are given the opportunity to provide their patients with the latest in high tech healing options including adaptable ultrasound and bone stimulators, TENS units, biomonitors, EMS, etc.

Opportunity for Advanced Treatments

Any doctor is now able to provide their patients with the latest high-tech immobilization option with no additional time or expense by simply writing a prescription for an ActivArmor™ custom splint.
Because ActivArmor™ devices are custom designed and fabricated, physicians now have an infinite number of unique design options, including length, cut lines, exposure of bony protrusions or incisions, adaptability for use with complimentary healing technologies such as ultrasound and bone stimulators, TENS units, biomonitors, EMS, etc.

Improved Patient Satisfaction

Referring physicians for ActivArmor™ have reported that their patients prefer it over traditional casting and splinting options for the following reasons:

  • Ability to get the device wet and sweat in it – allowing them to continue their sports, summer activities, and active lifestyles
  • Hygienic benefits including the ability to bathe and shower with it on
  • Reduced feelings of claustrophobia
  • Improved skin condition and comfort, and reduced irritation due to breathability and improved hygiene options
  • Reduced office time and visits for re-casting and re-fitting due to soggy casts, deformed splints or worn velcro
  • Patients can have access to post-surgical incisions for wound dressing and follow-up care at home

Saves Clinics Time and Materials

Using ActivArmor™ at any phase of the healing process can save clinic time because it is reusable, so eliminates the need for cutting off casts and recasting for each follow-up exam, incision check, or x-ray. There is no need for additional office visits and replacement casts due to claustrophobia, skin irritation, or wet casts. This can reduce office time and increase patient throughput and efficiencies as well as save money in casting and splinting supplies and inventory. Even if a traditional cast is required during the initial phase of an acute injury, ActivArmor™ can be used in later healing phases to give the patient the freedom to ease back into normal activities after injury.
