A new protective frame eliminates the need for gypsum in fractures


A broken bone as a result of a bad fall or a blow not the most pleasant event that can happen is with any person, even if by nature, this person is very accurate. But the fact of the fracture is not the saddest thing that can happen in such a situation. Yes, the sick will be hard (who has already racked up, he knows), but the most irritating in the end there is that for a month or even more, a man after application of plaster splint or simply can not function broken limb. About washing also can be forgotten, at least in the pool you just do not go swimming. But soon, thanks to technology 3D-printing may receive alternative.

Jake Evill, a graduate of the University of Queen Victoria (Wellington), in New Zealand, made using the 3D-printer, a new kind of plaster, but rather a light and durable protective frame, which can be applied at fracture, such as a hand. The design of each individual protective frame in this case is chosen individually for each patient depends on the severity of the injury. Plus, such a framework is that it will protect that portion of the trauma only where necessary, leaving open the other portions that do not require locking. Positives: The lightweight and durable design makes it possible to wash and thus the skin “breathe.”



Currently working on this framework has not yet been completed, for example, the author has not been determined exactly which materials are most suitable for use successfully. But the concept, you need to admit, interesting.
