Cellacast® Xtra

For a safe stabilisation.

Thin, lightweight and stable: Cellacast® Xtra, a modern synthetic casting tape, provides secure stabilisation. It is composed of a rigid fibreglass fabric and is used for immobilisation of fractures, after surgery and for orthopaedic correction. It also is designed for use in treatments for joint and bone conditions, as well as to mould splints for reinforcing circular casts.

Flexibility and comfort

The Ready-for-use Padded Splint meets users’ individual requirements and is comfortable against patients’ skin. Different widths, available as pre-cuts or by the meter in practical cardboard dispensers, make for economic use of the materials. A resealable, airtight foil pouch prevents drying out. The splint is secured with a conforming bandage such as Mollelast® haft and can be removed easily, if necessary (e.g. to inspect the wound). The fibreglass core, which is composed of seven layers, provides the required stability.

Stability - light and easy

A high degree of stability is required of casts, especially when treating fractures and after surgery. Lightweight casts are more comfortable and restrict patients the least. Cellacast® Xtra is a lightweight casting tape which provides the desired level of stability in only a few wraps. This makes it both sturdy and lightweight enough to be worn comfortably.

Mouldable to any body contour

The casting tape can be moulded to any body contour — even difficult-to-wrap areas around joints — and is easy and quick to apply. In addition, this material has excellent lamination properties, making it attractive in terms of cost savings as well.

For reinforcement: Cellacast® Xtra Splint

Cellacast® Xtra is also available as a splint. This product can be used not just to apply splints but also to reinforce individual synthetic casts.
