I imagine that the brace is printed around the afflicted limb, and probably removed by cutting , like a regular cast.

Definitely a step forward!
I do not understand the Headline writers choice of words. How is a new support/brace ‘disruptive’????

No. It is printed as a bivalve.
This is disruptive because it cuts into the AMA monpoly on expensive plaster. Go to the pharmacy, put your ACE-sleeved arm into the scanner, and come back in an hour to get your thin shell two part cast.

I’m starting to equate 3-D printing with making the steam engine or electricity available to mankind.
New applications seem to appear daily, and right now, IMO, the sky is the limit.
