Become an ActivArmor™ Provider

“Say you have an incision there and you can actually look at the incision site without having to worry about taking the cast off and putting a new one back on… It makes it easier also to do ultrasound therapy, you know, you have a little window you can cut out and you have an ultrasound device that can stimulate bone healing… It actually decreases the bacterial level, because you can actually wash underneath.”
Michael Fitzmaurice

MD, Fitzmaurice Hand Institute, Scottsdale, AZ

“ActivArmor was introduced to me by a fellow physician who had the same wrist injury. My first thought was ‘How come no one is doing this or has done this before? It’s brilliant! It’s water safe, much needed, and it just makes sense.’ ActivArmor is second to none when it comes to NextGen immobilization technology.”
Dr. Jim Smith

“ActivArmor has increased patient visits, because when a kid is walking around with this cast, everyone sees it and wants to come here to get that same cast – because they see how active they can stay in it. It’s been a real game-changer for our patients and our clinic in general, so I highly recommend it.”

All of the previous problems of inability to shower, swim or workout, itching, hygiene, and incision exposure are solved. Patients will love the comfort and convenience of going back to a more normal life!”

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.
“With ActivArmor, there’s no inventory. All we have is this scanning device. We send it off and it comes in a few days. We don’t have all the casting supplies you typically need, so that’s a huge cost saver, and it’s a big cost saver to patients because they don’t need multiple fiberglass casts or splints, they just need one device and that’s all.”
