St. Luke’s Hospital in Pennsylvania is using ActivArmor casts that are based on phone scans, 3D printed using desktop FDM systems, finished by hand with Dremel’s and 3D printing pens, vapor smoothed and then sent to customers. They are said to be more comfortable and you can wash beneath the cast. I was very skeptical of 3D printed casts but it seems that they are indeed growing as an application.
