    Product Description

    UGMO-Overview

    With FastForm, you can treat your patients cost effectively, with our ultra moldable products that provide a perfect fit and superior comfort from injury to recovery. The FastForm Universal Gutter Multifunctional Orthosis (UGMO) is revolutionizing the treatment of metacarpal and phalangeal fractures and tissue traumas. The UGMO can be used as a splint, cast or brace and is quick, easy and clean to apply.

    FastForm’s revolutionary technology is based on a highly conformable thermoplastic (PolyTrexX™) combined with an effective wicking and fast-dry liner (DermaWick™). When heated, PolyTrexX™ is highly conformable (plaster–like). Once molded to the desired position and shape, PolyTrexX™ rapidly reverts to a high strength, ventilated immobilizer that’s radiolucent. The FastForm® UGMO uses the same technology used in its SAMO orthosis which in a study was shown to produce effective fracture immobilization and acceptable radiological outcomes.1 The adjustability and easy removal may suit a wider spectrum of patients.

    The Universal Gutter Multifunctional Orthosis overlapping design and tension strap allows for either pressure relief from swelling or soft-tissue compression to increase limb stiffness. Built-in hinges (easy on/off) enhance patient comfort and routine hygiene, while the compliance-lock deters tampering. Inventory is reduced as a single UGMO can be used as an Ulnar or Radial Gutter for both RH and LH applications. (4 in 1 design). A superior alternative to conventional casting material and non-custom moldable orthoses, the FastForm UGMO allows patients the freedom to carry out daily activities with greater ease and comfort. Patients will love how the enhanced comfort of FastForm improves their healing experience and quality of life.
