|Economy / Ecology|
The economical rating of the stabilizing plaster or cast bandage is normally calculated on the price of a roll of plaster or on the unit price of a cast bandage.
In Germany a rigid cast is about three times more expensive than the classic plaster cast.
But considering the total material cost of the different stabilizing bandages MOKcast is the most convincing option.
In the view of this economic advantages a purchase policy based solely on the list- or roll-price seems very shortsighted, because the cheaper product (plaster) has high follow-on costs. In the end the cost of the therapy is the deciding factor.
If the disposal costs for plaster and rigid-cast bandages are added on the material costs, more arguments appear for the definitive, straight-through cast.
This does not only help the environment, but also lowers the cost of waste-disposal.
Not only the oscillating saw but a lot of other plaster manipulating instruments (plaster shears, plaster spreaders, plaster benders..) are redundant. The only instrument needed for a MOKcast application is a normal pair of bandage scissors.
The polyester used can be deposited in the normal household waste or be disposed off in a furnace. In contrast to plaster or fiberglass casts it burns completely. If the bandage is contaminated with blood or other, even infections, body secretions it should be disposed of separately in the furnace.
