3D Printed Exoskeletons Could Replace Plaster Casts
Cortex is a 3D printed exoskeletal cast designed to be fit around the wearer and snapped shut with fasteners.
Cortex is a 3D printed exoskeletal cast concept designed to replace traditional plaster casts. Designed by Jake Evill, it is more wearer-friendly for patients who suffer from breaks and fractures.
The Cortex cast utilizes an x-ray and 3D scan of a patient and generates a personalized 3D model in relation to the point of injury. Once printed, the cast is ready to fit, with one side open to enable access and built-in durable fasteners that snap closed.
