The future of healing broken bones

cast1

If like me, you’ve played rugby. Then its highly likely that you will at some time broken a bone. The trama starts by going to the hospital, getting x-rayed, then you get that heavy plastercast wrapped around your arm. For me it was virtually always at the end of the season and the temperature gets hotter and the cast becomes itchier.

I just spotted this amazing 3D printed cast in Wired today and I’m just banged my head on the desk wondering why its taken so long for someone to design this! Its genius!
