In order to manufacture an ActivArmor Cast, we require a precision 3D scan of your limb. With most injuries, a doctor must provide a prescription, with specific detail on the required cast design, along with the aforementioned scan.
If you are not in an area with an authorized provider, we offer a proprietary iPhone app which could be used for many ailments - please check here!
If your Doctor currently does not offer ActivArmor, ask him to contact us - all we require is a prescription with the specific design criteria. We are certainly happy to connect and discuss the process. OR Contact ActivArmor directly!
The cost of an ActivArmor cast/splint will vary, based upon the custom model selected. This is due to the complexities of design and fabrication for different orthoses devices, as well as the amount of materials required to fabricate and time required for our craftsmen to finish your unique device.
In many cases, as a Health Canada approved Class 1 medical device, ActivArmor is partially or fully covered by private insurances plans across Canada (depending on the individual plan).
Check with your coverage, and it may not cost you a penny! But many patients tell us that even with partial or no coverage, the benefits of ActivArmor are such that the value often outweighs the cost...
