Product Details

aortha® CAD CAM

Raw material requirements for CAD-CAM differ from traditional manufacture. The need for foams and plastics in different formats, dimensions and densities has forced material manufacturers to adapt their offerings, and is the catalyst behind the development of the aortha® CAD CAM range.

aortha® CAD-CAM materials provide orthotic labs the largest number of appliance options available. Materials sold with some CAD-CAM systems (some under contract) can be very expensive and restrictive in hindering your design flexibility. aortha® CAD CAM materials provide you with full design flexibility, a vast choice of material combinations and most importantly: major cost savings.

Homopolymer Polypropylene for CAD-CAM

Homopolymer polypropylene is a pure polypropylene that offers a high strength-to-weight ration. The ability of polypropylene to yield pressure and torque, yet consistently return to its form without fatiguing, has eliminated distortion in many orthoses.

Homopolymer polypropylene will produce excellent and solid orthoses and remains rigid, even in thin applications and the rigidity of the material makes it ideal for heavier patients. Used as a base in the manufacture of CAD-CAM foot orthoses, polypropylene offers control and
is extremely long lasting.

● Provides stability and control
● Slim fitting and comfortable
● Easy to clean
● Durable
● Lightweight

PU material can be ordered in any colour to suit your needs. Contact us to discuss your requirements. (Minimum order quantities apply).

aortha® EVA & EVA Orthotic Blanks for CAD-CAM

Devices manufactured form EVA foam (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) are lightweight, shock absorbing and very hard wearing. EVA orthotics also retain their shape and reflect body heat. aortha® EVA is an excellent material for use as an appliance base for a covered CAD-CAM foot orthotic or alone as the finished device. A higher density gives more control of the foot while lower densities offer increased comfort.

Easy Mill’ EVA is also available in block form. Easy Mill is an EVA foam is manufactured from a finer grain of EVA. When using Easy Mill EVA, the residue produced through the milling process is much finer than with standard EVA, meaning any build up is easily to removed. Easy Mill EVA is not as durable as our standard EVA, however it is milled in exactly the same way and will produce quality applications.

aortha® EVA materials are also available as pre-cut orthotic blanks – AKA: Duck Shapes. aortha® EVA orthotic blanks are die-cut and ready to use with your current CAD-CAM milling station. Duck shapes are available in different densities and colours to suit your requirements. They will fit most existing milling systems or can be used with your own custom system. Blanks can be secured to milling station using double side tape or your own milling adapter frame.

aortha® Multi-Density Orthotic Blanks

In addition to the single density blanks (Duck Shapes) we can also offer ‘dual’ and ‘tri’ density blanks that will enable you to take full advantage of your existing CAD-CAM milling equipment. As with a casted device, different densities of EVA are used to increase the functionality or give cushioning and support.

aortha® PU CAD-CAM Blocks

PU (Polyurethane) is a resilient, comfortable and durable material making it ideal for use in producing orthotics. The PU material has excellent abrasion and tear resistance and demonstrates very high impact resistance and toughness while providing comfort and stability for your patient.

The PU material is ideal for patients requiring superior shock absorption, comfort and cushioning. PU is proven to reduce and transfer unwanted pressure from prominent bony structures. PU is 50% more shock absorbing than EVA and the low compression of the material adds to the shock absorbing durability of the material. PU material can be ordered in any colour to suit your needs. Contact us to discuss your requirements. (Minimum order quantities apply)
