3D Printed Medical Devices Are Revolutionizing Health Care
Until recently, broken bones, sprains, and fractures had been mended using traditional manufacturing methods that have gone mostly unchanged for generations. While many areas of medical technology have seen sweeping innovations and reinventions, casts for broken bones have remained fundamentally the same.
Moving forward into the modern era with 3D printing technology, the next logical evolution of casting is here. Exiom 3D printed casts represents the ultimate in ergonomic engineering and patient care— available now.
Lightweight & Strong
3D printed casts are unique, open lattice structures that provide total support while remaining lightweight and breathable.
3D printing allows for the creation of a custom-fit brace that fits perfectly, and can come in virtually any color.
Lets You Stay Active
Xkelet 3D printed casts dramatically reduce down time while you mend and help you stay active in your favorite activities— you’ll be able to say goodbye to feeling completely limited in mobility with traditional plaster casts.
Our rapid and streamlined delivery process allows you to start healing faster, thanks to expedited shipping.
Forward Thinking Technology
Our casts are produced with a new generation of high speed 3D printers, which take full advantage of our proprietary biocompatible materials. Fortunately, this means that any cast produced is not only skin-safe, but also safe for the environment. Whether or not you want to toss your cast once your injury is healed, it will fully biodegrade, unlike conventional ABS plastics
Intelligent Design = Patient Comfort
3D printed casts by Xkelet use a Helical Union System, which allows precise control of the stiffness and density of the immobilized area. With our open lattice design, a patient’s skin is allowed to receive proper air circulation.
Forward thinking design, biocompatible materials and overall breathability make these casts a superior option for anyone. Additionally, our pediatric models can be printed with a secure closure system to prevent removal and help ensure proper positioning for healing.
How it works
A scanner is moved around the broken limb of the patient by the technician, creating a 3D image of the limb in real time.
Once completed, the image is ready for our scan software to calculate the precise length, width, height and volume to be produced. Our 3D casts are designed to yield a few millimeters in the case of any inflammation post-installation, but are otherwise reliably sturdy. Thanks to this technology, the internal space of the immobilized limb can be safely increased, and over-compression of the injured limb is avoided with no compromise in strength— all with the proper air circulation afforded by our open-lattice design.
TriMed represents unparalleled personalization to each patient’s needs. Thanks to the latest 3D printing technology, our aim is to introduce a worthy successor to traditional orthosis braces with an open lattice design that is lightweight, breathable, waterproof, and more, making these casts a welcome option for anyone.
