Explain the details of “Automatic Fracture Casting Device”
The device “Automatic Fracture Casting Device” works on spraying material that transfer from liquid to solid after exposure to air. In contrast to the traditional plaster of Paris casting, this is a faster, neater and safer cast with no additional pressure over fractured extremity. The spray material take the fractured extremity shape before transforming to solid with exposure to air.
How did you get the idea of “Automatic Fracture Casting Device”?
The idea came to me after I observed the errors in original ways of casting. My father had a fracture on his leg that led him to have ordinal plaster of Paris cast. However, the tight cast complicated the situation and he had inflammations. This incident led me to think about safe way applying cast over fractured extremity and then I started the journey of inventions arriving now to my invention “Automatic Fracture Casting Device.”
Who should have “Automatic Fracture Casting Device”?
All the Orthopaedic clinics should have this device in the future. The device will transform the face of fracture casting. The clinics can ensure casting with less pain, less side effects, cost effective and time saving casting with the device.
How is the reception and recognition of “Automatic Fracture Casting Device”?
The idea of “Automatic Fracture Casting Device” is new, so it got great recognition especially at invention fairs that I had participated in.
Which hospitals in the Kingdom already adopted “Automatic Fracture Casting Device”?
In the current stage, the invention “Automatic Fracture Casting Device” is in the development stage. It will soon get into the research stage.
