Fracture Cast Concept Lets You Track Your Healing Process
Design

Fracture victims who have their arms or legs in a cast are often oblivious of how to care for their broken limb or know how long it takes for a full recovery, but an inventive cast concept by graduate student Pedro Nakazato Andrade from the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design may help curb such worries and inform injured persons of their own healing process.

The orthopedic cast Andrade has created, that he has named ‘Bones,’ is equipped with electromyographic sensors that are designed to read muscle activity around the user’s fracture. ‘Bones’ then sends the readings to a health management website for easy-reference. The cast device would also be able to tell its user what activities would be too strenuous to be performed.

Watch the creative visualization of the project below:
