This is this year’s winner of the design award for 3D printed products: the Osteoid. It’s designed by Deniz Karasahin, an industrial designer from Turkey. A combination of ultrasound and a 3d-printed advantages of the 3D printed cast are obvious: lightweight, thin (you can wear it under a shirt), it can get wet, it is open – no smell – no itch, tailor made. There has been proof from scientific research that the low intensity ultrasound can increase healing rates with 80%.
