Questions & Answers:
What materials are used to make the green and orange Alimed Original Carrot?
The green and orange AliMed Original Carrot is made of smooth cotton fabric, packed with washable wool fleece.
Why is the green and orange AliMed Original Carrot filled with wool fleece vs. foam?
The wool fleece inside the green and orange AliMed Original Carrot is more comfortable, absorbent, and non-resilient. Unlike foam products, the benefit of the non-resilient wool fleece is that it is unlikely to stimulate flexor activity in the fingers of patients with neurological conditions.
What materials are used to make the blue AliMed Original Carrot?
The blue Original Carrot from AliMed is made with a velvety, anti-microbial fabric cover treated to wick moisture away from the palm to reduce maceration and infection. It is filled with tiny plastic microspheres that are highly conforming and non-resilient, so the orthosis will not increase spasticity.
