ProComp Carbon Reinforced Polypropylene Sheet for AFOs, KAFOs, and SMOs

ProComp sheet, available exclusively from Curbell O&P, is an innovative, carbon-fiber-reinforced polypropylene material that is 25 percent stiffer than standard homopolymer polypropylene. Layers of carbon fibers are infused between layers of homopolymer polypropylene which results in zero carbon fiber strand protrusion when finishing.

ProComp is easily adjusted with heat, making it easier to fine-tune orthoses and check or definitive sockets for prosthetics. This provides a more comfortable fit than standard laminated carbon sockets.
