You broke your wrist: a guideline before your doctor's appointment
Approximately 1,5% of all visits to the emergency department are due to hand and/or forearm fractures, most of which are radius and/or ulna fractures (44%). The majority (47%) of these hand and/or forearm fractures are caused by accidental falls. Since these fractures can happen anywhere (at home, in the street, at school…), it is good to know which measures you can take before you meet with your doctor.

Complications of a traditional cast
Casting is an immobilisation procedure that is often applied for closed, reduced or non-displaced fractures. Immobilisation is useful for various reasons: it keeps the bone in the right position, protects the surrounding structures from injury and reduces pain.

The difficulties of implementing 3D technologies in medical institutions
Similar to other technologies that have dramatically influenced the medicine world, such as X-Ray Imaging or the Medical Thermometer, 3D printing has the potential to significantly improve upon the current medical standards. Although this technology has started being used around 20 years ago in procedures such as anatomical modeling for bony reconstructive surgery planning or joint replacement and craniomaxillofacial reconstruction, today’s hospitals are still somewhat reluctant in adopting this innovative technology.

A new innovative technology that could change the way to treat Positional Plagiocephaly.
Plagiocephaly translates to “flat head” syndrome in Greek and is also known as benign positional moulding, positional plagiocephaly, occipital plagiocephaly or plagiocephaly without synostosis. It is a deformation of the skull observed with children at a very young age and is known to be one of the most common cranial deformities in infancy. “Plagiocephaly”, can be used to describe asymmetric head shapes resulting from both synostotic and non-synostotic causes.
