Deniz is a Turkish designer who is using 3D printing to advance medical sciences. Indeed, he has developed a type of plaster called osteoid allowing fractures heal faster than conventional methods. We explain to you everything regarding this very promising innovation.

Osteoid is a plaster concept conceived by Deniz Karasahin. The purpose of this object is to repair fractures faster than using a conventional plaster. Osteoid is composed of a plastic material with a very airy design, allowing the arm cells to breathe. It is even possible to wash this plaster as it is resistant to water. Yet the real prowess lies in the fact that the cast transmits low-intensity ultrasounds directly on the fractured area.

Specifically, wearing osteoid and daily using ultrasound for twenty minutes, it would be possible to reduce the healing time of a fracture by 38%. This prototype won first prize in the 2013 edition of A’Design Award & Competition. A commercial version is expected to be released soon.

This new generation of plaster from Deniz really impressed us! We congratulate him for his ingenuity. This once again proves that 3D printing can be very helpful. Some of my friends who already had fractures think osteoid is a great design and healing aid. Would you prefer a conventional or a this modern plaster design?
