Lim Loren has put together a series of revolutionary finger splints called the Bend in partnership with the Division of Industrial Design that allows consumers to wear a much more flexible and pliable cast while their bones heal. The cast is engineered from polymer to provide a breathable, durable as well as flexible design that helps injuries heal faster.

When bones break or muscles are injured, casts and sprains are often a necessity in keeping the injury in place while it heals. The Bend offers a much more breathable and fluid cast that is made using polymer. The cast looks like a spring that encases the finger using a piece of thread to keep the finger in place. The flexible design allows the ligament to still move, while it heals.
