If you've ever had a broken bone, it's not just about dealing with the pain. It's about dealing with how confusing the whole healing process can be. This is a cast that could take some of the mystery out of what your body's doing.

Designed by Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design graduate Pedro Nakazato Andrade, "Bones" is an orthopedic cast concept that harbors electromyographic sensors that reads muscle activity around your fracture. It then sends its readings to a health management website that you and your doctor can share and discuss. Something that makes the healing process much more constructive for the patient who hates waiting rooms.

It had one flaw, though. It looks like you can't sign it anyplace. [Vimeo via FastCo Design]
