SARASOTA, Fla. -- TriMed announced the availability of Exiom's innovative Xkelet casts and product line to the U.S. medical marketplace. The Red Dot Award-winning orthosis system is recognized for its custom-fitting 3D printed cast that optimizes hygiene, functionality and comfort. The Xkelet brace fits perfectly on children or adults and comes in virtually any color for the fashion conscious patient. The forward thinking design eliminates the loss of muscle tone and recovery associated with plaster casts. TriMed not only provides Xkelet casts, but also installs and trains medical practices who want to provide the service.
How It Works
The Exiom solution starts with a technician moving a scanner around the patient's broken limb creating a 3D model of the limb in real time. The software calculates the cast's length, width, height and volume. The cast is then 3D printed with bio-compatible materials using a Helical Union System that provides precise control of the stiffness and density of the immobilization. The cast's open lattice design is lightweight, waterproof, and breathable so the patient's skin receives proper air circulation.
