Engineers Invent A Waterproof & Breathable Cast For Replacing The Plaster Ones To Put An End To Itching Forever

One thing we know for sure is that breaking a leg or an arm can be a really horrible life experience due to the constant suffering and pain along with the discomfort from wearing that nasty looking, heavy and hard plaster casts.

Luckily a group of inventive engineers based in Chicago came up with an idea to make the lives for those who have broken arms or legs a little easier by creating a new design for these casts. These new casts are waterproof, which means that nobody has to worry about putting a plastic bag on their cast for taking a shower.

A team of inventive engineers came upon the idea for this new arm cast.

A startup in Chicago by the name Cast21 studied the problems with plaster casts and then found a solution for them.  A biomedical designing engineer named Jason Troutner along with his friends and colleagues; electrical engineer named Justin Brooks and Ashley Moy, who came up with this idea are all the students of the University of Illinois. They came up with an idea to create a hygienic, waterproof and a breathable cast that could be fitted on an arm in only 10 minutes. This is done usually by the use of a liquid resin which hardens and then helps to set the bones in place.

This cast is a hygienic and waterproof solution in comparison to plaster casts.

The Vice President for Cast21 named Veronica Hugg told media, “We are of the notion that you can enjoy even in your healing process. You must not be restrained in your daily activities.”

As per Hogg, this cast is very easy to remove and does not require the use of the circular saw; commonly used for cutting off plaster casts.

Hogg also highlights, “Another plus for this cast is that you will not need any kind of electricity or power for applying this cast which makes it portable. This cast has not the only potential for being in the home first-aid kit abut also in military kits as well.

If any of you have seen the cast design from a designer named Deniz Karasahin, which he named as Osteoid, then it is not similar to that one. Karasahin’s cast design is a 3D-printed one and also involves the use of ultrasound.
