Article extract: Cortex is a project that aims to replace casts, and get rid of all the sweaty, uncomfortable experiences that go along with them. As Jake Evill describes the issues behind this work, "After many centuries of splints and cumbersome plaster casts that have been the itchy and smelly bane of millions of children, adults and the aged alike, the world over, we at last bring fracture support into the 21st century. The Cortex Exoskeletal Cast provides a highly technical and trauma zone localized support system that is fully ventilated, super light, shower friendly, hygienic, recyclable and extremely cool!"
