In the family “our little ones forgotten at CES 2022” I would like Skincasts, a startup company based in Arles which offers a new generation of 3D printed splints! These splints designed in collaboration with the studio Vr’tig.0 are made of a polylactic acid (PLA) material, a material that keeps the holding properties of plaster but adds a lot of improvements.

The Skincasts splints are in fact radiolucent, ultra light, recyclable (!), submersible (you can really swim in them) and the holes on their surface allow the skin to be aerated and thus avoid sweating (and sweating) phenomena. odors). Better still, this plaster 2.0 is customizable, at least concerning the choice of color. Don’t throw any more!

Finally, we note that the Health Insurance covers these splints up to 60% of their price, which is really a very good thing. Do these splints announce the end of heavy, cumbersome and quickly dirty casts? We can only wish for Skincasts…
