The use of plastics is quickly growing in the areas of orthotics and prosthetics, taking advantage of plastics' unique characteristics.

Advantages of plastics

The advantages of plastics for Medical Equipment and Supplies are numerous. Plastics are much lighter than metal, which equate into better fuel economy and cheaper to manufacture parts. Additionally, the lighter weight aids in safer material handling. Plastics can be designed to be impact and dent resistant, and modified for improved strength. Corrosion resistance, color and texture flexibility, the economical components and aesthetics are other advantages of plastics.
