Orfit Industries has extended its orthotics product range with the OrfitransÒ
Medium Soft, which is made of stronger thermoplastic material offering
optimal patient comfort. The ORFITRANSÒ Medium
Soft, is designed for both prosthetic transtibial (i.e.
below-knee) check (or diagnostic) sockets as well as

team, the latest offering completes the OrfitransÒ

materials for the production of external prosthetic
check sockets. The new Medium Soft version can be

equivalent to 750 bar) and is available in sheets of
different sizes and thicknesses (5/16 in., 3/8 in., 1/2 in., 19/32
in.) depending on the patient’s physical condition.
