Central Indiana Orthopedics is proud to be the first orthopedic practice in the region to offer ActivArmor 3D printed casts and splints to patients of all ages.
Unlike traditional casts, ActivArmor empowers patients to maintain their active lifestyle while healing from injuries. Benefits include:
ActivArmor is custom-fit to within 0.5mm of the patient’s arm, mapped to the contours of the limb/injury requiring support. During an office visit, the area of injury will be scanned to create a 3D image of the patient’s limb/injured site. While the custom splint is being created, the patient is provided a temporary immobilization device. After a few days, the patient will return to the office to have their custom cast applied.
Shower, bathe or swim as you normally would. Enjoy any water activity without worrying about protecting your cast with an annoying waterproof bag.
No more smelly casts or splints! ActivArmor is breathable, so it doesn’t trap bacteria or moisture against the skin. It’s easy to clean off dirt and sweat, causing less risk for skin infection. Plus, the incision and/or pin sites are visible and can be monitored more easily.
ActivArmor will not rub or slip against your skin, reducing irritation and itching. Additionally, ActivArmor is adjustable – clips are locked on like a cast, or easily removable like a splint, per doctor’s orders.
Although ActivArmor is covered by most insurance companies, we want to be upfront with you about what is not covered by insurance. You will be required to pay a scanning fee prior to scanning the injured site. The remaining balance will be billed to your insurance company. Our financial counselor will meet with you in the exam room to review and verify your insurance coverage and confirm if a prior authorization is required.
