The Knee Spacer is made from a soft and flexible, hypoallergenic, polyurethane foam. The foam product has been specifically developed to have very fast recovery characteristics from its compressed storage state. The foam combination of different chemicals has allowed this product to ensure comfort and longevity, and has been individually cut using the CNC programmed laser cut method. This foam product is one that has a ‘spring’ to it, but is still soft. It is designed and moulded into a specific shape to provide comfort to the lower back, hips and knees. The foam product is covered with a very light and soft, but durable, skin-friendly cover, which is ultrasonically tape sealed to provide a completely airtight and waterproof device. A pressure vacuum valve is inserted into the product to create a vacuum. This makes the product compact, lightweight and easy to travel with. It can be stored in a small space.
This product can sustain the rubber cycle autoclave procedure, which is ideal for multiple client use. This high-quality medical device is environmentally friendly, controls cross infection and makes it easy to apply medication, ice or bandages.
