LITHE / Fracture cast design


The traditional gypsum fixation for fractures brings many problems, such as poor air permeability, too heavy, and it is not easy to make and remove.
“LITHE” uses a plastic material with a shape that can be changed at will. After the external force disappears, it can maintain the bending state. It only needs to be worn on the injured arm, adjust the angle, and remove it after healing. This design can make the cast
reusable and a better experience.
