ActivArmor – Safe and Skin Friendly

27 Jan, 2019

ActivArmor is biocompatible and made from 100% ABS plastic to provide a hygienic, breathable, safe casting/splinting alternative.

ActivArmor is made from 100% ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) – a stable, hard and durable plastic used in toys, food packaging and surgical tools, to name a few.  It is washable, cold sterilizable, and reusable, as well as recycleable.

“You don’t get the skin breakdown that you do with traditional casts.  Less risk of skin infection; you can view the incision as well as pin sites, where you can’t monitor those in a traditional cast.  So these are great for post-op patients.”

Jason Browder, PA, Alpine Orthopaedics, Gunnison, CO

ActivArmor has passed ISO-10993 biocompatibility testing, and has been successfully used on patients with allergies to latex and other traditional casting and splinting materials.

It is temperature resistant and will not deform in heat, so patients can ice-bath or hot tub in ActivArmor without worry.

“I love my ActivArmor.  I got rashes with all the other ones.”

Stacy Trujillo, Patient, Centura Pueblo
