Open Cast is created with hygiene new material that is easy to conduct and safe
When someone is injured, they have to wear the cast for certain amount of time for treatment. At this time, compared to the pain that is related to the injury, it makes people itchy and smelly, and accompanied with the inconvenience of not taking a shower due to cotton bandage that is inside the cast.
To solve this inconvenience, after the long term research, Woori Material developed open cast with network structure that contains large ventilation area that enables patients to take a shower and does not cause itchiness and smell. Particularly, it enables repetitive adhesion and disassembling if necessary as it contains easy procedure and removal.
Open Cast becomes a soft status that is easy to transform when heated by 80~90 degrees Celsius and created with new material that is solidified again when being worn at necessary part and cooled down. It allows smooth ventilation and checking of skin status by naked eye. Also, with its high quality of material and refined design, there is no problem in outdoor activity and the procedure is convenient.
