Healthcare Medical Foam Packaging
We have extensive experience working with packaging for medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Foam is critical in medical packaging. It keeps sensitive devices and instruments safe and provides critical insulation for temperature sensitive items and medicines. We’ll help you select a foam that fits your specific needs and fabricate so that it provides the maximum protection during transit.
Healthcare and Medical Foam Cushioning
Medical cushioning requires complex customization to fabricate pieces of foam that support, cushion, and provide relief to patients. The durability, fungal resistance, and comfort of each piece of foam must also be considered. We help you choose the right foam for your cushioning application and shape it into custom pieces that perfectly fit your manufactured products, often combining two or more layered foam types.
Support Braces and Orthotics
Medical braces and orthotics require precise customization to achieve healthy medical outcomes for patients. We help you choose foam types that are washable, comfortable, and can withstand the stress of everyday use. These products often require complex construction and multiple foams, and we have the fabrication experience and technology to accommodate specialized short run orders, or long-term mass production.
