Orthopedic Hybrid Cast

Seaworthy Cast: What is Orthopedic Hybrid Cast?

As MSM Clinic, we follow innovative solutions such as orthopedic hybrid cast to ensure that our patients undergo the treatment process in the most comfortable and effective way. Thanks to its waterproof feature, this special type of cast allows our patients to continue their daily lives and even participate in water activities, making the treatment process more comfortable. However, as with any medical treatment method, orthopedic hybrid cast should be used under the recommendation and supervision of your doctor.

Orthopedic hybrid cast is a special material created by combining the properties of traditional casts with modern technology. The special polymeric substances contained in this cast increase water resistance while maintaining the durability and lightness of the cast. Orthopedic hybrid cast is an ideal solution especially for patients who come into contact with water.

Is Orthopedic Hybrid Cast Waterproof?

Orthopedic hybrid cast has a durable structure even when in contact with water. It has almost no water absorption feature like traditional casts. This feature allows our patients to continue their daily activities such as taking a shower or swimming in the sea. There is no deterioration or softening in the structure of the cast when it comes into contact with water, so our patients can easily enter the water.

What are the Advantages of Using Orthopedic Hybrid Cast? Who is it suitable for?

Orthopedic hybrid cast can be used in all diseases that require normal cast. It can be used for arm and leg fractures, wrist sprains and other orthopedic surgical procedures. It is a type of cast that can be applied to patients of all ages.

  • Waterproof: It has a durable structure even when in contact with water, which allows our patients to continue their water activities.

  • Durability: It has a more durable structure and is more resistant to cracking or breaking.
  • Comfort: It causes less itching and irritation and provides a more comfortable treatment process for our patients.
