Air cast / Air compression cast

Air cast
Air cast



This is an air-compressible cast that can be fitted quickly when a bone has been broken. By combining the air compression method of a blood pressure meter with a cast, anyone can fit the cast to their size very quickly. When a bone breaks, you need a cast in the right size, but a traditional cast takes a long time to prepare. This makes it difficult to react in an emergency. As a result, we have combined the air compression method of a blood pressure measuring device with the cast. So now anyone can be fitted with a cast in the right size very quickly.

This design is an innovative solution to a clear problem. The designer has covered the whole range of products needed for the human body, with the right choice of materials.
I am excited to be selected as one of the winners of the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2017_02. I feel grateful to have been given the honor of receiving this award. I am very grateful to the judges who have chosen me and Professor Ahn, who guided me. Thank you very much.
