Your Call Football’s upcoming four-game series, which begins on Monday, February 25, will allow fans to control the action in a real, live game by determining the plays that will be run on the field.

JOI Introduces ActivArmor™

ActivArmor™ The Latest In 3D Splinting Technology

Image of Athletes Wearing ActivArmor™

Recent advancements in technology have turned 3D printing capabilities from science fiction into a very real necessity in modern manufacturing. Layer by layer, 3D printers use different materials to print products ranging from artificial organs to high performance shoes, telescopes to jet engines. This futuristic technology is more accessible than ever and is now available through Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institue and ActivArmor™ in the form of custom 3D splinting.

Can An ActivArmor™ Orthosis Get Wet?

ActivArmor’s™ 3D splints are designed to be hygienic, waterproof and breathable, features that provide a huge advantage to athletes requiring protection and immobilization. Athletes may continue to train and sweat while wearing ActivArmor™ as the breathable design and hygienic material will not trap odors or bacteria like traditional casts and splints. They can ice-bath on the sidelines and bathe like normal.

Can An ActivArmor™ Orthosis Be Used With Bone Or Muscle Stimulators?

ActivArmor™ devices are adaptable for use with advanced healing technologies such as bone stimulators, which can reduce bone fracture healing time, muscle stimulators, which can reduce muscle atrophy and rehab time, and TENS devices for pain management without the use of narcotics. Alternative therapies can reduce injury time and allow athletes to get back into the game faster.

How Long Does An ActivArmor™ Scan Take?

The process for the 3D scan takes only 30 seconds in the clinic, and is completely touch-free and painless. A model of the patient’s limb is created by safe, white-light reflecting off the skin. This is uploaded to ActivArmor™ with the doctor’s specific design instructions for the individual’s injury or condition.

Is An ActivArmor™ Orthosis Able Customizable?

Every ActivArmor™ orthosis is digitally designed using CAD (computer aided drafting), allowing for an infinite number of design options based on the patient’s medical needs and lifestyle; including thickness, coverage and exposure areas, breathability, closure options, etc. This empowers JOI doctors with the ability to provide their patients with the latest in high-tech healing options. Post surgical hardware and incisions can be exposed for visualization, monitoring and treatment – which can reduce infection rates and improve healing outcomes.

Is ActivArmor™ Available Anywhere?

Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute is one of a handful of locations in the United States and the only orthopedic facility in the southeast to offer this revolutionary new technology for athletes. ActivArmor™ is the only commercially available 3D printed splint listed with the FDA on the market.

Is ActivArmor™ Covered By Insurance?

It is covered by most insurances and can reduce downtime in an active lifestyle. Speak with your physician today about an alternative to traditional casting and splinting options to get you back in the game faster!
