About Onbone Oy

 

Onbone Oy was formed in 2008 by two researchers at the University of Helsinki. Two years later Woodcast Splint made its debut in the operating theatres in Finland. The material is a clean blend of wood and biodegradable polymers that can be given different strengths and other parameters to suite different applications. Since 2010, the product range has expanded to cover many aspects of immobilization, stabilization and protection not only in health care, but also in other areas like sports and veterinary medicine.

Woodcast is a lightweight biodegradable material made from wood and biopolymers, originally developed to replace the plaster casts traditionally used in hospitals. The material, invented by the Finnish high-tech company Onbone, proved to be so versatile that it is now used in a wide array of usage areas, one of them being sports.
