Researchers Create 3-D-Printed Medical Device to Replace Traditional Plaster Casts

from AZoM

A team of graduates from the National University of Mexico have created a Mexican startup, Mediprint, which specializes in using 3-D-printing devices to manufacture medical devices to measure. Their aim is to resolve issues related to the use of conventional plaster splints used in bone rehabilitation, including ulcers, infections, and amputation of limbs. These issues occur as doctors were not able to inspect the area easily, there was an accumulation of sweat, and limited ventilation. Mediprint's main product is the NovaCast, which prevents infections as it is ten times lighter than the conventional material and offers better ventilation. more
