This form has more built-in durability and support than any other form. Invented for the decubitus patient, this Alpha Cradle® brand form allows the entire patient to be immobilized lying on their side. If a 90° angle cannot be achieved with their back, the patient may be rolled slightly for comfort and security. Each time the patient arrives for treatment, they will wiggle into position, returning to the same spot they were in during simulation. This is the only device developed exclusively for treating in the decubitus position. Deep impressions guide the arms and legs back into position while comfortably holding your patient. This form immobilizes your patient and gives you a unique tool for guiding them into the same position each day for therapy.
The Frog Form is a unique tool that gently holds your patient’s legs open, like a frog, while keeping the feet comfortably together. Deep impressions in the foam guide the thighs, the lower legs and both feet back into the same position, while comfortably holding them securely. While immobilizing the lower anatomy, this form also greatly reduces the amount of skin folds in this area, while keeping it completely accessible. This is the only medical device that can reduce skin folds in this tough-to-treat area, while providing you with an easy-to-use, easy-to-make, immobilization and repositioning tool.
Lower Extremity Form
The Lower Extremity Form comfortably immobilizes the lower extremity from high mid-calf, to below the end of the patient’s foot. This form controls rotation and flexion of the extremity, and easily allows ports to be cut into the form as necessary.
This perfect immobilization form was made using our AC325™ foam on the ACMMII. The comfortable foam will hold the leg motionless, in the EXACT position, for each and every treatment.

Upper Extremity Form
The Upper Extremity Form comfortably immobilizes the upper extremity from the patient’s armpit, to below the end of the patient’s hand. The patient creates a hand mold that they can hold onto during treatment for added security and comfort. This form controls rotation and flexion of the extremity, and easily allows ports to be cut into the form as necessary.
This UEF was quickly and easily made on the ACMMII, using our AC250™ foam.
