CUSTOM-FIT FACE MASK

Protection from further injury is very important during the healing process. Springer Prosthetic and Orthotic Services will fabricate a Custom-Fit Face Mask out of an impact-resistant thermoplastic, to control swelling and to prevent re-injury to the affected site.

Unlike the "off-the-shelf-one-size-fits-all" type of mask that utilizes pads with varying thicknesses to achieve a fit to the contours of the patient's face, the Custom-Fit Face Mask utilizes the frontal, zygomatic, and infraorbital regions of the anterior aspect of the skull to achieve total surface pressure, insuring additional protection of the injured area. The result is less bulky, lighter in weight, less restriction to vision, and the fit is custom shaped to the patient's facial structure.

The fitting process will require a minimum of two visits and can be completed in 2-3 days. A full facial cast impression is taken, and from that impression a Custom-Fit Face Mask is fabricated and fit to the patient.
