Saws, Cast, Electric, Oscillating
Definition : Electric cast saws designed to cut casts using a serrated blade that oscillates at a very high speed perpendicular to the axis of the machine without full rotation. These saws are handheld instruments with an electric motor; a mechanism to drive the blade; a detachable, toothed, circular or semicircular flat blade; and an electric cable. Oscillating electric cast saws are used to cut casts using dedicated plaster or fiberglass blades for cast removal, creation of a hinged cast, or to open a window in the cast to view underlying tissue; they may also be used to cut plaster and/or fiberglass jackets, dressings, and molds.
