The Maloney Cast is a temporary cast that can move at the joints and be adjusted for stiffness and resulting mobility. The cast would be custom sized and made of a semipermeable material for breathable comfort. Internal padding would provide comfort and be impregnated with antimicrobial and anti itch medication. Long rods made of non-ferrous, non- magnetic materials would provide stiffness, and a ratchet device at joint would allow for adjustability of joint mobility. Ratchet and rod components would be standard productions, while the flexible cast would be custom made. The system would possibly be used in conjunction with existing internal fixation surgical techniques. It may also be used in hasty situations where surgery is not an option or trained surgical personnel are not available.
