Warrior Expo 2017 – MATBOCK OsteoFX

Friday, July 14th, 2017

MATBOCK is now offering the OsteoFX cast system. It’s FDA approved and reimbursibke through Medicare and Medicaid.

Application is simple, offering a 40% reduction in application time over traditional cast systems. Also, OsteoFX can be used most anywhere, including austere areas. You roll the inner material unto the affected limb, wet the outer material, roll it into place, and you have five minutes to make any adjustments before it begins to harden. The material cures as it air dries, fully cured in 15 min. Even better, you can get it wet, like showering or even swimming and the cast won’t compromise while allowing the skin underneath to dry and breathe.

Massif developed this Field Shirt and Pant for AFSOC and worked with the user community to include the features we’ll go over.

It’s made from a MultiCam print, SIGMA 4 Star which is an amazingly comfortable, yet durable, Kevlar and Nomex blend.

The Shirt features a two pocket layout with Velcro for rank at the center of the chest and two strips above the pockets for name and branch of service strips.

Each pocket consists of two compartments. The outer compartment features a flap and the inner compartment is accessed through a vertical zipper and is lined with mesh.

The hem of the Shirt features a slit for mobility.

The sleeves close with Velcro but there is also seam at the cuff in order to make rolling the sleeve easier.

Next up is a two pen slot at the left wrist.

Shoulder pockets on either side are lined with mesh and feature zippered openings. The two-piece Velcro for shoulder patches helps reduce bulk.

The seams are not at the top of the shoulder but rather, set back.


The big feature for the Shirt is the mesh-lined, vented back.


The Pant features 10 pockets, starting with the front pockets, with horizontally-oriented openings, offering lots of room for pocket access.


There are two flapped pockets mounted to the front of the thigh which will accommodate an iPhone 6 with case or similar.


The cargo pockets are of low-profile design and are accessible through either top or front zippers.


In addition to flapped pockets on either calf, there are zippered pockets at the rear. Additionally, there is a gussetted crotch, for mobility.
