Fiberglass Impression Example

A great impression will reveal the limb structure (bony landmarks and other topography) of the patient on the outside of the fiberglass impression so that your patient’s impression can be digitally scanned.  As opposed to a cast, which is thick and supportive, the impression should be thin (overlap each strip by half).
