Velcro sensitive responses

Cheryl Lewis

Here are some of the responses I have heard so far – I am going to be trying the 3D version first and see how it goes.

Velcro Sensitive Fabric responses

Hey Cheryl. We use a product from Ottobock called ComforTex https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__shop.ottobock.ca_en_Prosthetics_Materials-2D-26-2DEquipment_Padding-2DMaterials_c_5500&d=DwIF-g&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=KmuawjwNpT9A2bnhzaNVjw8wO7L_TDosEXIk33h_tlw&m=Hgw2er-QLI8_I7NQFsxqzYc1Tu-pqrNzrxxidO9KB3I&s=7mtRwGSEZWKsGqYZS9DEaryBbGvkSED-J2BQVe94oUw&e=

Velcro sticks to it. I line KAFO thigh Shells and occasionally AFO calf to ankle.

Our 3D lining fabric is what you are after. I can send a sample.

Hey Cheryl. I use this stuff for prosthetic applications all the time. If you order bulk, it is about 56 cm wide and a couple meters long. They would probably send you a piece from MOT but if not let me know what dimensions you need and I’ll send you a strip (Neo-Axilla loop padding was the link he added)

We’ve been using this https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.ortoped.ca_en_materials_textiles-2Dleather_covering-2Dlining_3d-2Dfabric.html&d=DwIF-g&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=KmuawjwNpT9A2bnhzaNVjw8wO7L_TDosEXIk33h_tlw&m=Hgw2er-QLI8_I7NQFsxqzYc1Tu-pqrNzrxxidO9KB3I&s=oUzUce9RY7LH9sUszXA0Qo2wJlnncV1xW_jVVnQRP8E&e= and it’s not bad. Works well with micro hook.

Benik corporationin Siverdale WA has velcro sensative neoprene with nylon on the other side and I believe you can get it ventilated.

Hi Cheryl- we use the 3D Fabric from Proteor. Part Number TT381. We have been using this for a few years as a better/more cost effective alternative to Spacetex from Ottobock.

Thanks to all for replying! Thanks Paul for hosting this great forum!
