The different production methods we use

WaterProof Stitching (WPS®) is an advanced technique for the seamless welding of patterns that can be attached together with 100% watertightness. Because no needle is used, there are no holes in the material. Water and moisture therefore have no chance of penetrating into the orthosis. This guarantees better hygiene and a longer service life of the orthosis.

Thanks to Digital Drape Upholstery (DDU®), we are able to upholster in shape rather than by stretch. The process involves measuring the object digitally, after which a cutting computer cuts out the patterns that, when put together, exactly match the shape of the object. This in no way affects the original shape. The stretch in the material also provides extra comfort. DDU® is an upholstery technique developed by Supportec.

Of course you want to protect your orthoses against the effects of moisture and dirt. With Seam Tape Bonding (STB®), your seams become 100% waterproof. This extends the life of the orthosis and improves its hygiene. STB can be applied to stitched seams and seams that have been welded using WaterProof Stitching. The tape that is applied also reinforces the seam strength.

At Supportec, we work exclusively with the new generation of special high-speed triple feed sewing machines. These machines achieve a very high stitch quality, both for the stitching that is visible and for attaching and fixing the seams. Only the best is good enough.
