The Elite has a durable, semi-rigid shell that helps support the limb while providing full-shell protection. Overlapping Duplex aircells line the shell providing intermittent pneumatic compression for 3x faster oedema reduction1. The front panel is pre-inflated and combined with the overlapping aircells, provides a 'total contact' fit. SoftStrike technology absorbs and dissipates shock, while the light weight and lab-tested rocker sole combine to encourage a natural gait and a continuation of everyday activities Material Components Shell: POLYPROPYLENE Front Panel: High Density Polyethylene Straps: NYLON Lined Aircells (Anterior and Posterior): POLYURETHANE w/ POLYESTER FABRIC Inflation Pumps: TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) Liner: NYLON/POLYURETHANE/POLYESTER (Outer/Foam/Inner mesh) Binding: POLYESTER Outer Sole / Insole: EVA/RUBBER Selector dial: NYLON Sock (Elite): ACRYLIC/COTTON Reference 1 Conservative Therapy for Acute Lateral Ligament Lesions – Single Chamber vs. Two-Chamber Orthosis Systems; Schmidt, Mainers, Reintges, Lipke, Benesch, Gerngross- Surgery Dept of the Federal Arm Hospital, Ulm, Germany, 1999.
