You can itch and shower which is a plus. The down side is the 3D printing of the cast takes around three hours whereas a plaster cast is three to nine minutes, but requires 24-72 hours to be fully set. The cortex cast utilizes the x-ray and 3d scan of a patient with a fracture and generates a 3d model in relation to the point of fracture.

Those were pretty fun to play with, wrap a few dozen on your fists and duct tape it. Impromptu boxing gloves.

As a person with a cast on right now, I sure as hell would rather have that.

I bet you're getting an itch inside your cast now, i bet it's right in the middle where you just cant reach it enough to be satisfying.. a slow building itch.. but maybe i'm wrong

Yeah, but wouldn't it ******* hurt if someone poked your broken wrist through the cast?

Would you prefer someone poking your broken wrist without a cast on?
#17 to #16 - summoned (07/01/2013) [-]
Obviously not.   
But why wouldn't I have a cast on if I had a broken wrist?...

I feel you man. I had to get surgery on my right elbow and ended up in a sling for three weeks. Not nearly as bad as your injury, but I was a performance major in piano at the time and ended up having to play three gigs and a recital with only my left hand.
#162 to #161 - lazragoon (07/01/2013) [-]
Ugh bro I know that feel, I was getting ready to play my Grade 8 piano (If you arn't familiar with RCM grading, you can get into university with gr8). When I broke my wrist... two years of preparation, down the ******* drain.
User avatar #164 to #162 - jazzspeaks (07/01/2013) [-]
Ugh... We used RCM repitoire for our piano proficiency exams... Even non-piano students had to do it. It was a joke to the piano majors because that's the stuff we got through in our first semester of private lessons.

It particularly sucked for me, since I was a Jazz major. I got REEEEEAL good at stride piano during those weeks though.
#167 to #164 - lazragoon (07/01/2013) [-]
I find the only hard part about RCM is the fact that no one actually wants to play the songs it provides. I'm working on a Jarrod Radnich arrangement, it was supposed to be impossible, and my piano teacher scoffed at me wanting to play it. I'm nearly finished learning and putting together the song, and I'm 14.

Jarrod Radnich - Incredible Piano Solo - Pirates of the Caribbean
User avatar #170 to #167 - jazzspeaks (07/01/2013) [-]
DUDE I PLAYED THIS!!!! Well, not this EXACT arrangement, but I was just dicking around one summer and stole little excerpts from this arrangement and added a stride improv section. I ended up playing it on my graduate recital as kind of a funny send off.

Once you get that hunker off your arm, go to town man! This is a fun as hell piece! But you HAVE to sit on the piano like him at the end or I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your soul.

No guitar playing? Perfect opportunity to practice finger tapping, or other similar left hand techniques. I play bass and it's what I would do if I was a similar situation. Just throwing out an idea...
User avatar #115 to #113 - wizardfist (07/01/2013) [-]
great idea, thanks man!
User avatar #116 to #115 - onebadbassoonist (07/01/2013) [-]
You're welcome I know what it's like to not be able to play music for a "long" period of time, I broke my pinkie [laying basketball with some friends a few years back and had half of my hand wrapped and immobilized. Couldn't play my bass, or tuba in band, for about a month.
User avatar #119 to #116 - wizardfist (07/01/2013) [-]
that sucks...maybe i should try to find my harmonica again...even my occarina needs both hands...

Anything to keep the music flowing
User avatar #129 to #112 - heartlessrobot (07/01/2013) [-]
Well, the reason it's a pain in the ass is because the cast is a lot wider than your arm and your anus isn't used to that while fisting.

i had a guy kick my cast... it was just a cast that covered my wrist... i had just gotten the cast 2 days prior... at first he just hit the cast... then the ****** kicked it...he broke my wrist again... laughed... then i smashed his teeth with my cast (which hurt like **** ) and sued him... my right hand is now 2 and half inches shorter then it would have been... now when i see this kid in the halls he avoids me...he ******* better...
