Abstract

The aim of this study is to propose the additive manufactured 3D printed technique for adaptive organic design splint as a solution for the problems generated by the use of casts in medical applications. Since the end of the XVIII century, when casts begin to be used, they have barely improved. Thanks to new manufacture and material techniques, we can improve and modernize this commonly used fracture treatment method. Based on three dimensional digitalization techniques and modeling via reverse engineering software, a 3D printed splint is proposed, which will provide the benefits of cast avoiding its deficiencies.
