Cortex: The 3D-Printed Cast

After many centuries of splints and cumbersome plaster casts that have been the itchy and smelly bane of millions of children, adults and the aged alike the world over, we at last bring fracture support into the 21st century. The Cortex exoskeletal cast provides a highly technical and trauma zone localized support system that is fully ventilated, super light, shower friendly, hygienic, recyclable and stylish.

The cortex cast utilizes the x-ray and 3d scan of a patient with a fracture and generates a 3d model in relation to the point of fracture.

The Capuchin Catacombs are burial catacombs in Palermo, Sicily.  Palermo’s Capuchin Monastery outgrew its original cemetery in the 16th century and monks began to excavate the crypts below it.  Bodies were dehydrated on the racks of ceramic pipes and sometimes washed in vinegar.  The catacombs were maintained through the donations of the relatives of the deceased and are open to the public today.—Source
