Together we WILL make positive change

WE NEED TO RAISE 125K NOW TO BRING ABOUT CHANGE TO THE TREATMENT FOR CHILDREN WITH SEVERE WALKING DIFFICULTIES AND ENABLE THEM TO LIVE A FULL AND ACTIVE LIFE 

WITH THIS MONEY WE WILL BE ABLE TO FULLY DEVELOP THE DIGITAL MANUFACTURING SYSTEM NEEDED TO PRODUCE MORE COMFORTABLE, DURABLE, COST EFFECTIVE ORTHOTIC DEVICES IN CHILD FRIENDLY COLOURS IN A MATTER OF DAYS (not weeks)  USING OUT RECENTLY PATENTED (European Patent) UNIQUE 3D PRINTABLE TORC MATERIAL.

Cerebral Palsy , TalipesHip Dysplasia , Lower Limb Amputation !


Do you know anyone who suffers or who has suffered from any of the above?

We at torc2 Ltd are working to bring about positive change in the treatment of these conditions with a range of bespoke devices produced using our unique torc material.

Before you read any more why not watch a short video by our CEO Gary Blundell  talking about the about the innovative torc material 




 
 What is so unique about the torc material ?

This innovative thermoplastics compound has the property to be thermally moulded and re-shaped where required at a temperature comfortable for skin contact, but which is a semi-rigid rubberlike solid at body temperatures.

This property when applied to splint, cast, and prosthetic socket liner production by the latest additive layer manufacturing techniques allows for the creation of bespoke devices offering real benefits in delivery time, accuracy, comfort and ease of adjustment.

The material has been developed to use an embedded heat source with thermostatic protection to ensure complete patient safety during re-shaping. Also sensors, communication chips, and additives including anti-microbial formulations can be incorporated into the material where required.

Why do we need your help at this point ?

Because after more than 5 years developing the material, and successfully proving out a laboratory modified prototype 3D printing process we now need fund the manufacture of a large scale fully integrated system able to accommodate the dimensions of full-sized devices such as Ankle Foot Orthoses.

What do we need to make this happen ? 

We need to raise 125k that will enable the Company to produce a range of fully developed and tested devices, such as Ankle Foot Orthosis, Hip Spica Suit, and Prosthetic Socket Liner ensuring that they are clinical trial ready within the next 12 months

TOGETHER WE WILL BRING ABOUT POSITIVE CHANGE ….

                                                                    
How
about change that reduces the time a child has to wait for a new AFO/splint from 13 weeks down to a matter of days?

                                                                                                     **********

How about a child being treated in an outpatient department instead of having to endure repeated General Anaesthetic to have spica casts removed and replaced?

                                                                                                     **********

How about a mother not having to witness her child’s distress because they have bleeding sores under their Hip Spica cast and with no immediate access to an operating theatre?

                                                                                                   **********

How about a splint, cast or prosthetic socket liner which is not only easy to wash/wipe clean but incorporates anti-microbial formulations to reduce the risk of infection?

                                                                                                   **********

How about amputees being able to refit/adjust the inner socket of their prosthesis to their residual limb without having to continually return to clinic?    
 
                                                                                                   **********

How about  devices that can be produced with both impact and variable flex resistance as well as embedded safe heat sources, sensors, and communication chips?

                                                                                                 ***********

How about having medical devices that offer significant savings both to the NHS and the wider Health and Well-being community in terms of time, cost, efficiency and human resource?

                                                                                                ***********
How about taking used torc devices, utilising their unique properties, and re-modelling for the benefit of patients across the World who currently have little or no access to treatment of lower limb conditions?

Testimonial 

“I have been working with these guys since the early days when they approached me for my advice as many of you know I have a daughter with Hip Dysplasia.

They have put so much hard work and passion and often self sacrifice  to reach the situation they are in today, especially having just received notification of being granted their European Patent for torc2 material for orthopedic applications.

They are now in a position to start putting processes in place and with your help this will  become achievable.

I would really hope you will share this with your friends and family, which will result in them achieving their goals and in turn help adults and children with lower limb conditions “

Claire Bradwell
