A custom-fabricated item is one that is individually made for a specific patient. No other patient would be able to use this item. A custom fabricated item is a device that is fabricated based on clinically derived and rectified castings, tracings, measurements and/or other images (such as X-rays) of the body part. The fabrication may involve using calculations, templates and components. This process requires the use of basic materials including, but not limited to plastic, metal, leather or cloth in the form of uncut or unshaped sheets, bars or other basic forms and involves substantial work such as vacuum forming, cutting, bending, molding, sewing, drilling and finishing prior to fitting on the patient.
