3D Printed Cast plus Sonar Treatment . . . Heals Bones 40% – 80% Faster
Almost all of us have experienced wearing a cast and felt that awful hot, itchy, uncomfortably tight plaster monstrosity that wraps around our broken bone. Really, the only thing that’s good about a cast is that your friends can sign them.
Enter, the Osteoid, created by Turkish student Deniz Karasahin, which integrates 3D printing and ultrasonic science to make healing a broken bone significantly more agreeable to wear and . . . . . you’ll wear it for a lot less time.
The 3D prototype cast is 100% aerated, extremely light, shower friendly, sanitary, recyclable and most important, fashionable. And . . . . you’ll still receive a lot of sympathy for your broken bone. According to the inventor Karasahin, the results of the 3D printed cast combined with ultrasound science, are dramatically superior to any other 3D printed cast that’s currently being developed:
Karasahin states that “for single 20 minute daily sessions, this system promises to reduce the healing process up to 38% and increase the heal rate up to 80% in non-union fractures (when a broken bone fails to heal)”.
