The Cortex system is lightweight and shower friendly, providing the patient with more freedom and convenience
The bespoke lattice structure is more concentrated near the fracture to provide more support
The utilization of high-resolution 3D printing provides a thin yet durable structure for support and comfort
The Cortex system is ready to fit right off of the 3D printer
The Cortex cast utilizes the X-ray and 3D scan of a patient with a fracture to generate a 3D-printed model in relation to the point of fracture
Jake Evill's Cortex concept uses 3D printing technology to create a bespoke exoskeletal cast
The only thing worse than breaking a bone is waiting for it to heal. During the healing process itself, wearing a fiberglass and plaster cast can be a stinky, itchy endeavor that is uncomfortable and inconvenient; all for an injury that is completely internal. Enter Jake Evill's Cortex concept. Beyond having an awesome last name, Jake Evill, a media design graduate of the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand, has managed to modernize the ancient concept of a splint using 3D printing technology.
