“With ActivArmor, an individual can swim, bathe, shower, sweat, and continue normal lifestyle activities while healing.”

~ Jason Browder, PA, Alpine Orthopedics, Gunnison, CO ~

“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.”
“We’ve seen the same healing rates, I’d say… better [with ActivArmor] because it’s a great fit and it’s a great immobilizer. It is a big cost saver to the patients because they don’t need multiple fiberglass casts and they don’t need multiple splints, they just need one device.”

~ Michael Fitzmaurice, MD, Fitzmaurice Hand Institute, Scottsdale, AZ ~

“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.”

~ Dr. Jennifer Madden ~

“ActivArmor is providing a great option for cast-like immobilization and comfort beyond what typical casting provides.”

~ Dr. David Grundy, Emergency Medicine Doctor ~

“In the COVID-19 era, a traditional fiberglass cast would have been an unacceptably dangerous fomite. I can get an XL exam or surgical glove on over it, and (critically important) I can easily clean it with soap and water and a final rinse of 70% alcohol. Due to the nature of my injury and the required treatment plan, ActivArmor has literally saved my job.”

~ Dr. Lance Snyder, Orthopedic Surgeon ~

“ActivArmor is unique because it allows our patients to be active while they are recovering from their injuries.”

~ Dr. Lauren MacTaggart, Orthopedic Surgeon ~

“ActivArmor provides the ability to manage acute and chronic conditions like no other immobilization modality. My patients have the ability to clean, touch and see the injured area, reducing the risk of cast claustrophobia and poor hygiene. ActivArmor allows my patients to maintain an active lifestyle while recovering from their injury.”

~ Dr. Daniel Clearfield, Sports Medicine Physician ~

“For the athlete or worker who can’t have a bulky cast holding them back, there is none better than ActivArmor to keep them in the game!”

~ Dr. Jared Jones, Orthopedic Surgeon ~

“ActivArmor is a fantastic, innovative approach to fracture care. CIO is proud to offer these custom casts, allowing our patients to maintain active lifestyles during the healing process.”

~ Dr. Nathan Lesley, Hand surgeon ~

“My years of seeing patients have taught me that everyone has a unique story to tell regarding how their particular condition affects their life. I enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level, and I strive to identify the best treatment plan, surgical or nonsurgical, to achieve their desired goals. Being able to restore normal use of the hands and thereby improve the quality of life in these patients is a privilege.”

~ Dr. Alex Romero, Sports Medicine Orthopedic Surgeon ~
