3D-printed cast by 3Peat Innovations

Section 001

Project Abstract

When a bone is broken, a cast is required to ensure that the healing process can occur quickly and efficiently. The cast stabilizes the bones so that they don't grind against one another and cause more damage, prolonging the recovery process. However, a cast is usually heavy and unwieldy, and since it can't be removed for the entire recovery period, it causes irritation and foul odors. This is where 3D printing can step in and help to improve the cast while ensuring that the recovery process is not prolonged.
