A great alternative to itchy, expensive carbon fiber braid! Coyote Composite, made from basalt filament, is a safe, tough material for composite sockets and AFOs. It's also easy to cut and finish compared to other materials.
Features and benefits include:
- Less expensive
- Less itch than carbon
- Extremely durable
- Strong and lightweight
- Finishes smooth and easily
- Uses typical prosthetic resins
- Not an inhalant risk
- Inert, noncarcinogenic, and nontoxic
Our proprietary braid was designed to be used in equivalent amounts to carbon. Coyote Composite is more flexible than carbon (we consider this to be an advantage).
