3D Printed Cast

3D Printed Cast

Innovative cast for broken and fractured body parts designed by Jake Evill.

3D Printed Cast fits perfectly over injured limb and holds the bone in place.

It is fully ventilated, lightweight, shower friendly, recyclable, stylish, and thin enough to be worn under regular clothing.

Printed with large opening that enables easy access, the cast is fitted and then closed using built-in fasteners.

Great alternative to traditional plaster casts that are bulky and itchy.

    Awesome new technology! Almost makes me want to break my arm…almost.

  2. Liz

    I’m currently wearing a very grotty and uncomfortable cast….this looks like sheer luxury in comparison. Bring it on!

  3. Jimbo

    The concept really looks great; but, being a skeptic, I wonder at it’s usability, Time to create, How to put it on, cost, etc… Plaster and gause are cheap and quick.

  4. Laura

    Wow – this is great – what a wonderful use of 3d printing!

  5. Running man

    Wow. That is simply amazing. Great use for the 3D printer.

  6. Gert

    That is the coolest thing I have EVER seen.

  7. Tom

    So, how do you get it on? It looks thinner at the wrist than your hand would fit through. Very cool looking though.

  8. Douglas

    The future is here.

    I presume you can get in different colours so everyone is happy :) Also would be less time consuming for the nurses as plastering takes time. I have never broken a bone (touch wood) but I know a lot of people who have and complain their casts get hot and itchy and makes washing difficult as they can’t get the plaster wet.
    I can’t wait for this to be mainstreamed :)

  10. Alex

    Cool concept, but its no where close to as tight/securing as a normal cast is – look at all that wiggle room!

  11. Joe

    Imagine the tan-lines from that badboy!

  12. lea

    it would help with the smell and itchiness that most casts have

  13. Ru

    I think the best thing about this is it’s breathability, but how does it get onto the arm? It says it is closed using built in fasteners but with swelling I would worry about how it would be fitted. Deffo a technology to watch for the future though, if hospitals/patients can afford it!

  14. Fillibert

    Way too loose, although I never wore a cast so maybe that’s the way it’s supposed to be. I wore a capon tunnel brace though so this could be a better use.
    What about printing the cast directly onto the arm. I mean have some sort of water soluble material to protect the skin but that would make a better fitting form

  15. Sharon

    Just brilliant the best use of 3D printing yet

  16. Swiper Fox

    For the traditional thing done on arm/leg casts… Where shall I sign/write, or put my graffiti on?

    just broke my wrist 3 days ago., I want one now. *itch itch*
