This Breathable, Washable ‘Orthopedic Cast’ Could Replace Itchy, Unhygienic Conventional Casts

This is the OrthoHeal FlexiOH, an orthopedic cast or “immobilizer” that has the rigidity to hold the fractured part like a conventional cast but ensures proper skin ventilation and hygiene. FlexiOH is breathable, washable, odorless, and promotes skin health, whereas conventional casts can irritate the skin and cause itchy rashes, etc.

FlexiOH orthopedic casts consist of a short or full arm immobilizer, a thumb spica immobilizer, a short leg immobilizer, and a splint or slab. Once FlexiOH is placed on the fractured area, a light treatment completes the curing process and makes the FlexiOH rigid. This quick and seamless process takes only 3-10 minutes depending on the size.



At the culmination of therapy, FlexiOH can be removed without the use of a harsh cast cutter or spreader. The goal of FlexiOH’s design and material is to provide ultimate comfort to the patient. It has a bio-compatible foam that directly touches the skin, which provides cushioning against the hardened polymer.
