Why is neoprene such a popular material for making orthotics?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi everyone. I'm hoping someone will take the time to answer my question. Neoprene seems to be a buzzword when it comes to orthotics. When I first heard of it, I thought it sounded like the kind of material superheroes would use to make their suits. However, a quick Google search showed me it's a kind of rubber. Is this right? Why is neoprene so popular when it comes to orthotics? I really appreciate any help you can provide.

You're right. Neoprene is a type of synthetic rubber and has become famous for making orthotics because of its unique properties. It guarantees flexibility, cushioning, and support because it is soft and stretchy. When any of this is required, Neoprene is the go-to material.
