First Commercial 3D Printed Casts Launching with Orthopaedic Specialty Group in Fairfield County, Connecticut.
Biomedical startup, ActivArmorTM, is partnering with Orthopaedic Specialty Group (www.osgpc.com) in Fairfield County, Connecticut as the first clinic to offer their innovative 3D printed casts in the Northeastern US. With years of field-testing completed on the high-tech waterproof, hygienic, breathable cast/splinting alternative, the startup company has recently expanded outside the state of Colorado to California, Illinois, Arizona, and is now partnering with Orthopaedic Specialty Group, the largest and most experienced orthopaedic practice in Southern Connecticut.
ActivArmorTM orthoses are being prescribed for injuries like breaks, sprains, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, through Parkview Regional Medical Center, Centura Health, HealthFit Family Medicine, CompletePT, Quincy Medical Group, Fitzmaurice Hand Institute, and will be launching at Orthopaedic Specialty Group in February. The next-gen casts are completely custom – precisely fitting to each patient using a 3D body scan, and designed per their doctor’s prescription, including the ability to expose post-surgical hardware or incisions, and adaptable for use with ultrasound and other advanced technologies.
Orthopaedic Specialty Group’s physicians provide complete care in all areas of treatment including advanced surgical and nonsurgical techniques, pain management, rehabilitation, and neurosurgery.
“Introducing this innovative technology to Connecticut is a sign of how much OSG cares about their patients’ quality of life,” says Ms. Hall, President and Founder, “because ActivArmorTM allows patients to remain active and enjoy lifestyle freedoms while immobilizing, supporting and protecting their injuries.”
“Another example of OSG’s exceptional people / exceptional care: We are excited to partner with ActivArmor to offer our patients state of the art care by applying the most advanced technology and 3D printing in our bracing and casting when immobilization and protection are needed. For the young athlete to the elderly: this is custom lightweight casting that is breathable and waterproof!!” (Dr Henry Backe)
“Orthopaedic Specialty Group’s 60-year focus on promoting an active, healthy lifestyle, through advanced and innovative treatments, makes it a perfect partner for our revolutionary waterproof and breathable orthoses — great for active patients and athletes,” says Dean Miller, ActivArmor CEO.
ActivArmor is currently available by prescription through the clinics listed on their website (www.ActivArmor.com) and covered by most insurance.
