If you’ve ever had a broken bone, you know the horrible experience of wearing a cast. The itchiness, smelliness, and discomfort is enough to drive the most stable person crazy. Designer Deniz Karasahin may have solved these problems with 3D printing technology and a new prototype called “Osteoid.”
Not only is Osteoid a more comfortable cast, it’s stronger and lighter than a traditional plaster cast. It’s also completely waterproof.
