 Casts with Heat Sensitivity

A team of faculty researchers from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and Boston University have developed a process for making 3D printed orthopedic casts that are personalized to the patient, as well as offering a unique thermal-comfort design. The 3D printed orthopedic cast are made using PLA material on an Ultimaker 3D printer, which are then heat-tested in two separate environments for 30 minutes.
