The numerous ventilation holes will eliminate the itchiness and the bad smells, the most disturbing effects of wearing a medical cast, and as the Osteoid comes with a low-intensity pulsed ultrasound system, the healing process will be up to 40% faster.
We can only hope that the Osteoid will soon enter into mass production.
