Project description

The splint is a rehabilitation device used to immobilize and support broken or dislocated limbs as they heal. The project idea is to design a 3D printed universal splint that will be used instead of the normal plasters which have numerous disadvantages such as water absorption, causing numbness and soreness among others. Our device is an improved version that can be made to custom fit anyone hence the term 'universal splint'.
