Clinical Trials Plaster splint with paper padding XrayTo3D wins awards
Clinicians test the device, after necessary approvals (depending on class of risk), leading to certification or further improvements.

1. Establish device classification (based on risk and duration of contact).

2. Prepare detailed protocol of proposed testing, and get ethical clearance.

3. Conduct the tests in partnership with a clinical research organization.

4. Collect results, prepare reports and submit to certification authority.

5. Provide clarifications, if needed, to the authority.

Novel orthopedic plaster splint with paper padding is helpful for immobilizing the affected organ instantly. It is having optimized bending stiffness, light in weight, ease of application and cost effective when compare to fibreglass splints.

Development Team includes Mayur Sanas, BETiC , COE Pune and Dr. Ashish Ranade from Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital, Pune

Current status: Preliminary testing has completed. Prototype is ready for functional testing. Patent is being filed.
XrayTo3D technology developed by Vikas Karade, which reconstructs 3D models of bone from their X-ray images, was recognized by 'Gandhian Young Technological Innovation Award' in 2014, and is among the top 10 innovations in India for President Scholar in Residence Program 2015
