• Bones, the fracture cast that hooks up to website to give recovery information


  • The casts we use to keep our fractured bones in place these days don’t amount to too much, accept working as a canvas for budding artists amongst our friends. Pedro Nakazato Andrade’s project called Bones however, does a lot more. Blending in technology with human health-care, the Bones system is basically a technologically advanced cast for a fractured arm. This one uses embedded electromyographic (EMG) sensors that hook up to an online community-based website. The cast cleverly monitors the persons arm movements and such and accordingly records it all on the website, giving the wearer information on recovery. Also, the system helps the wearer with additional information such as pro-recovery exercises for specific parts of the person’s hand and such!
