Lynn Schelp, a patient at ActivArmor’s providing clinic in Illinois, Quincy Medical Group, describes her success with this revolutionary, waterproof*, breathable, hygienic, 3D-printed cast.
A Different Kind of Casting
Lynn, an active adult, was being by the orthopedic physicians at the Quincy Medical Group, in Quincy, Illinois. When faced with a choice between an outdated, smelly, plaster cast, or some other old technology for her required immobilization, and ActivArmor(TM), the first and only commercially available 3D-printed, watersafe, breathable, and fully custom cast or splint in the US, the choice was obvious!
“A regular cast, well, you couldn’t get it wet. If I took a bath, I put a baggie on it. It was very inconvenient.”
“[MyActivArmor(TM)] was made especially for me. They scanned my arm, … and it fit perfectly. I like it because… because I can take a bath, can do dishes. It breathes, it doesn’t get itchy. I like it a lot.”
