Seeing as I got my cast taken away almost a year ago, this post angers me. It is so itchy!

Everyone is saying how you can scratch with this on, but since it's made covered with holes, you wouldn't even have an itch in the first place........

This doesn't look capable of immobilising the wrist, nor is it made of a sufficiently durable material so it would be essentially useless. Add in the fact that positioning the lower arm to be scanned would likely disturb the fracture and cause more pain and that printing it would take far too long and you have a useless, expensive, overcomplex replacement for something that doesn't need replacing.

As it is 3D printed it is some variety of polymer. But that is a moot point, a 3D ptinted object that fine would be fragile reguardless of the material used due to the way it is created.

When built up as layers you are creating natural faults (areas where it is easier to separate the layers), as i said the material used is a moot point, the structure itself would be physically weak.

Usually if you require a cast, it is not a pretty site, squeamish people are going to have panic attacks left and right. I need to go break my arm in a horrible way so I can be the cause of this.

Usually it's just bruising and swollenness and it isn't that bad. Unless you ****** your body up really bad the usual reaction would probably "**** that looks like it hurts" not "Holy **** that's disgusting"

That's why I said in a brutal way, normally it is just bruising and such. But if you get a compound fracture, especially if it breaks through the skin, there are rips and deformities and what have you. The bruising itself can even get to a point that is disgusting.

You never said anything about the brutality in your first comment. "Usually if you require a cast, it is not a pretty site..."
Most people are not that dumb/unlucky to get themselves ****** up that badly. But yes if they do **** up that badly it would looks as disgusting as you say.

A compound fracture literally means it breaks though the skin.

And yes. It looks disgusting. A friend and I were climbing a tree. He steps on a yellow jacket nest by accident. They sting the **** out of us both. We fall from the tree. He gets a compound fracture. It was possibly the most terrifying experience of my life. I'm pretty sure it's possible to be stung to death. I had to get an injection at the hospital to counteract the yellow jacket venom, and I'm not even allergic to it.

Actually, a compound fracture means broken in more than one place. Breaking through the skin is by no means a requirement. And yes it is very possible to be stung to death but if you aren't allergic it takes a ridiculous amount.

Not sure witch country you're from, so the definition may be different there, but according to just about every source I know, including a couple courses in first aid, for a break to be classified as 'compound' the bone must break skin.

I'm fairly certian that for a break to be a compound fracture it needs to break the skin. I'll check and be right back.

I just looked it up, and I'm getting conflicted reports. Some say yes, some say no on breaking of the skin being necessary.

I've been through the first five links on Google so far and they all agree with bone needing to protrude. Can I have a link to one that doesn't? I've got to be AFK for a little while, but when I get back we can continue.

****, I was thinking of a comminuted fracture. That's also the results I was getting that said it doesn't need to break the skin. >_<
