Cushion Loop CB100 facebow   “The Shock Absorber” facebow

Invented and patented in 1963 by Dr Lawrence F. Andrews, the cushion loop facebow solved the outer bow breakage problem of facebows with the shock-absorbing loop.  It has stood the test of time as the finest commercially available since 1963. Ortho Kinetics has been manufacturing the cushion loop facebow since 1996 in our USA manufacturing facility.
