The company revealed earlier in 2012 how a class of thermoplastics have been initiated into the orthotic landscape with little regard for the imminent danger it presents to both the health care professional and the patients themselves.
Poland, OH (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
Anatomical Concepts, Inc., designer and manufacturer of industry-leading medical devices, custom-fit and custom-fabricated orthoses for both upper and lower extremities, has expanded its campaign to warn medical professionals about the risks of using PVC-based plastics in orthotics.
A direct mail campaign was sent to hospital administrators throughout Ohio, and the company is planning to expand the campaign to other regions of the country. Additionally, the company’s product advertising this year included the statement, “Anatomical Concepts does not use PVC-based plastics, nor Kydex®, nor Latex in any product, which, when heated, can pose health risks to both medical professionals and patients.” This has raised awareness to the dangers of PVC-based plastics in orthotics.
