These Customised 3D Printed Casts offer a stylish and more importantly comfortable alternative to plaster casts we are so used to seeing.
Having to wear a cast is never pleasant, that’s just how life is. But you’d think that after the pain you had endured before getting one your cast would be a bit more bearable to wear.
Fortunately, these 3D-printed casts solve a lot of problems you take for granted when it comes to regular casts.
You can get outfitted with one of these casts thanks to the state of the art scanning technology. It takes your precise measurements and helps create a cast that will be just the right fit for you.
What so special about these casts is that they allow your skin to breathe even when immobilized. Instead of having your limb be completely entombed in plaster, the 3D-printed cast gives you the much-needed freedom.
You can finally scratch your skin whenever you want, instead of trying to reach the itch with a spoon or a ruler. The printed casts are also waterproof, lightweight, and stable.
The design will certainly not suit every type of injury. But the idea of 3D printing breathable casts for each individual patient seems to be on the right track.
