How this startup would revolutionize a 165-year-old medical device

Casts immobilize broken bones, enabling them to heal. They were a genuine medical breakthrough in the 1850s, when they were first used on soldiers wounded in the Crimean War. Not much has changed since then except for a recent switch to fiberglass from plaster.

Now Cast21 has developed a bone-mending aid that overcomes the downsides of conventional casts, says Ashley Moy, CEO and co-founder of the just-launched startup, based in mHUB, a River West incubator for entrepreneurs working on physical products.
