Fillauer Announces Centri Thermoforming Liners
March 01, 2003
After becoming part of the Fillauer family, Centri of Sweden announces the expansion of the Quality Liners product line. Recognizing that patients have their own unique limb shape, Centri has specifically designed a liner for thermoforming to the individual's shape. Other liners claim this benefit, but their reinforcing matrix and fabric covers prevent the liner from truly forming to the limb geometry. The Centri liner is simply applied to the positive mold and placed in the oven at 180º and left to form for 15-45 minutes. After cooling, the liner takes on the patient's specific shape.
The Centri Quality Liner is available in a locking or cushion version, 3mm uniform or 6mm tapered thickness, beige or transparent coloring. Each liner has a compatible liner dummy, which may be used as a spacer when making the interface to prevent the liner from being damaged during fabrication.
The Centri Thermoforming Liners are available at Fillauer, Inc., Hosmer Dorrance, and Centri of Sweden.
