ORTHOTIC & PROSTHETIC APPLICATIONS)
Since a long time "JASUD" has
been supplying regular grades of HDPE and PP Sheets in Natural
as well as Skin colour to various Orthotic & Prosthetic
Aids manufacturing units across India and the quality is
well established in the market especially in the Orthopaedic
Aids manufacturing units.
Generally, a plastic sheet is heated and
vacuum formed or draped onto a mould of plaster of paris
to get the finished product - Orthotic or Prosthetic appliance.
Since the mould is made as per customer specifics, it is
very important that the sheet gets heated evenly, does not
shrink and has a good setting time to get most of the contours
of the mould specifically on the plastic appliance. Secondly
it has to be flexible / rigid (as per requirement) as well
as durable to make the customer comfortable once he/she
wears the Orthotic or Prosthetic appliance.
Not satisfied by only offering the conventional
grades of Sheets, the staff at "JASUD" remains
in contact with various customers and regularly gets feedback
from the customers as to how "JASUD" can improve
its products to enhance the quality and smooth processing
and to get maximum functional benefit from the end product.
The valued feedback of our customers and our commitment
to offer quality products, has resulted in developing quality
sheets of different materials, in different variants, to
suit different applications of the O & P Industry.
Today, for manufacturing "JASUD"
Ortho Sheets, best processing technology is applied which
ensures consistently processed sheets with added features
like stress relieving of the sheets and, monitoring the
finished sheets to verify -colour, gloss, thickness, flatness
and surface aesthetics- ensures that a quality product is
offered to the customer.
"JASUD" Ortho Sheets are available
in different materials wherein the combinations vary with
each material to offer customized properties for specific
