There are hundreds of different types and brands of thermoplastics and choosing the one with the right characteristics (e.g., strength, thickness, malleability, heat retention) can be a daunting task.
We took the guesswork out of it and created our own thermoplastic that is specifically designed for animal patients. Characteristics include:
Just heat in hot water (about 200 degrees). Sheets become malleable and can be draped over any body part or over a bandage or soft support (e.g., Thera-Paw Custom Carpal Support).
Includes self-adhesive Velcro hook tabs, which are applied inside the trough of a shaped splint to adhere it to the outside of neoprene braces.
