Hello All,

I am looking to make a mold out of foam to repeatably secure a subject's
forearm in an apparatus. Are there any medical or other types of foams that
can be poured into a mold, the subject rests their arms in the mold, and the
foam cures fairly rapidly? I know the foam can get hot and you have to be
careful not to burn the subject's arm. I'm interested in people sharing
their experiences and the foams (manufacturer, part# etc.) they have
used/recommend.

I will post a summary to the group.

Thanks,
Pete Johnson
