The purpose of study is to verify that WOODCAST Circular system performs safely and effectively in its intended use.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Study on Circumferential Casting Techniques With WOODCAST|
- Efficacy study for new design of scafoideum and ankle casts. [ Time Frame: 1 - 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||December 2011|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2014|
|Primary Completion Date:||August 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Patient age 0-90 years. Patient treatment requires extremity immobilization
Other: limb casting/splinting
ankle and arm cast
An ecologically friendly and biodegradable wood-plastic composite-cast is studied. The purpose of the study is to verify that WOODCAST Circular system performs safely and effectively in its intended use. Patients, who need immobilization of extremity (including for example scaphoid fracture of the wrist or ankle fracture) will be participating in the study. Various casting techniques with novel WOODCAST material will be studied.
