Carbon graphite pre-preg material -first responses

Randy McFarland

Following is my original post, but I realize that I didn’t actually ask what
I intended to ask. Where are the pre preg sheets available?

ORIGINAL POST

I have usually purchased thin pre-fab CG footplates for use under diabetic
patients with great toe or partial foot amputation inserts.

Have you tried using flat pre-preg CG material that can be trimmed and
heated to the positive model of the patient’s foot?

Does it hold up for these (usually low activity) diabetic patients? Thank
you! Randy McFarland, CPO Fullerton, CA

Good question. I have used prep ref for arch supports with some success but
not with the forces with full foot.

We get ours from Fillauer:
