What Is Cast 21 Made Of?

There's a lot that goes into making sure your Cast21 orthopedic device is both comfortable and practical. Our flagship product is the patented Cast21 immobilization net, which consists of a sleeve and a liquid pack. 

The Sleeve 

The Cast21 sleeve, worn by the patient, is a breakthrough in orthopedic care. It is made of a unique blend of medical-grade materials, engineered to be both strong and comfortable. The sleeve fits over the patient’s arm and is in contact with the patient’s skin while they heal from injuries. Additionally, the sleeve's open lattice design provides superior breathability, which helps to prevent skin irritation and infection. The sleeve can be worn for over eight weeks and is available in a variety of sizes to fit both children and adults. 

The Pack 

The pack contains a proprietary liquid formula that hardens into a solid. A healthcare provider puts this liquid into the Cast21 sleeve. Once the liquid is in the sleeve, it rapidly hardens to create an orthopedic device that is strong, lightweight, and molded to the patient's body.

Together, this two-part system creates a cast or brace alternative that is strong enough to support your broken bone while still being comfortable enough to wear for extended periods.  It is an ideal solution for those seeking a more comfortable and stylish option for their orthopedic needs. The system is easy to use and can be applied in seconds to minutes by a healthcare professional. 

How Much Is Cast21?

The goal of developing the Cast21 system is to provide a more cost-effective option than traditional plaster or fiberglass casts. We believe this innovation can dramatically improve the quality of life for patients who require a cast or brace, and it has the potential to save healthcare providers time and money.

The cost of Cast21 will vary depending on the patient's insurance company. Some insurance companies may cover the entire cost of the device, while others may only cover a portion of the cost. Patients should contact their doctor and insurance provider to determine if Cast21 is covered under their plan. 

Cast21 is not available for direct purchase from the manufacturer. This means that patients cannot buy Cast21 from us directly. Since we do not have any visibility into a patient's insurance contract, we are unable to provide pricing information. Cast21 cannot be obtained without a licensed healthcare provider. 

Is Cast21 FDA Approved?

Cast21 is an orthopedic cast manufacturer that has overcome its FDA regulatory hurdles and is now being used worldwide. The company's patented, FDA-listed medical device is used to manage complex fractures and broken bones. 

Since its inception, Cast21 has been committed to improving the lives of patients by providing them with innovative orthopedic solutions. The company's flagship product is a revolutionary new type of cast and brace alternative that offers superior support and comfort while being easier to apply and remove than traditional casts. Thanks to its cutting-edge technology and commitment to quality, Cast21 is quickly becoming the leading provider of orthopedic solutions. 

Is Cast21 Waterproof?

That's why we've gone to great lengths to ensure that our immobilization nets are made of a sturdy material that can be safely submerged underwater. The results of our tests showed that our immobilization nets are strong enough to withstand being submerged in water without losing their shape or function.

  • Do not stick anything between the product and your skin, as this could cause irritation. 
  • Do not put any weight on a broken limb that is supported by Cast21, this could cause further injury.
  • Do not attempt to remove the product yourself. Please visit your nearest Cast21 provider if you need to have it removed. 
  • If the cast becomes dirty, you can wash it with warm water and soap. You can also use a damp cloth to wipe away any dirt or debris.
