Elasto-Gel is easy to work with, reusable on the same patient, is mildly adhesive, and conforms exceptionally well to body contours. It may be easily cut with a pair of scissors to the desired size and shape. Standard backing is stretch cloth on one side and clear plastic on the other. The stretch backing may be removed by first moistening with a damp cloth and then peeling the cloth from the gel. Because of the self-adhesive nature of the gel pieces, they may be layered together for various thicknesses.
