- Can be customized for patient positioning and surgery support applications.
- Available in bio-based formulations that look and feel the same as traditional TERRAFOAM.
- Latex-free with medium soft touch
- Non-adherent and highly conformable to body contours

Sustainable design options
To lessen your end product’s dependence on fossil fuels, some of the ingredients in the final TERRAFOAM can be replaced with bio-based products to create a largely bioplastic-based foam that looks, acts, and feels like the traditional foam. Bio-based TERRAFOAM samples are available in our patient positioning foam kit. Reach out to us below for more information on bio-based foam options.
