Deniz Karasahin. Osteoid, 3D printed orthosis

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Turkish industrial designer Deniz Karasahin came up with a groundbreaking new medical cast named Osteoid. Not only the organic like design is astonishing, but also the practical characteristics of the orthosis.


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.
