As you know medical casts are commonly used to help people to restore broken bones. But unfortunately many medical experts see that traditional cast is less effective, a bit heavier, and less durable.

That is why Deniz Karasahin created “Osteoid” a customizable 3D printed medical cast. It is lightweight, easy to build, and fully customizable.

The feature mentioned above allow Osteoid to be easily combined with low intensity pulsed ultrasound bone simulator. This combination help to accelerate the healing process by 38% faster.

If you want to achieve maximum result, it is recommended to put the low intensity pulsed ultrasound bone simulator (LIPUS) directly on the skin on the injured area.

Osteoid is also available in various colors option so you can wear it in style.

I know it is easy to buy your first smart TV randomly, but how do you know that your choice is the one that suit your needs? Not sure?

Since there is no industry standard for smart TV, so every brand offer a different platforms of apps. So yea, it will be hard for beginner to choose the best one.

To give you better understanding, most smart TV allow you to enjoy TV and films, social networking, and web browsing. This mean, you will need Internet connection or home networking capability if you want to connect the TV to your PC or smartphone wirelessly.

While on the other side, there is a way to turn your current TV into smart TV. Devices like set top box or your computer will do the tricks.

From here, you know that you have two scenarios:
1. You buy a brand new smart TV.
2. Or to add additional devices like set top box or use your computer to turn your current TV to be smarter.

So let`s discuss both scenarios above in more detail.

Scenario 1
As I have stated before, there is no industry standard for smart TV. So the only best guide is to identify your budget and needs.

"More features = more expensive the price"

Check the offered features, whether you will use or enjoy it all or there are some features that you do not need.

If you notice there are some features that you do not need or like. Try to look at other models or from other brands. This way you will create a balance between your needs and your budget.

Also check the remote control, with smart TV you won’t just be changing the channel, you have to type the names of TV shows and films that you want to watch, or to update your Facebook status.

So trust me, you do not want to do that with an ordinary remote control. Fortunately some brands provide smartphone apps (iOS and Android) that allow users to use their smartphone to control the TV.

Mostly, smart TV will require you to spend more than $200 of your budget.

Scenario 2
If you are on a limited budget, transforming your current TV to be smarter is a wise move.

Only by spending a cost under $100 allow you to take advantage the power of streaming media player like Amazon Fire TV to convert your ordinary TV into Smart TV.

If you need other set top boxes, this guide will help.

Didn`t want to buy a set top box?

Well, you can connect your computer to your TV. In this method, your TV will serve as a large computer monitor. For this, you’ll need an analogue VGA input.

Some TVs also can be connected via a digital input, either a DVI socket, or via an HDMI input configured for PC screen resolutions (check your TV manual). And if your PC only has a DVI output, HDMI to DVI cables are required.

1. First answer this simple question – “What type of cyclist are you?
Are you just cycling to school, office, or others daily? If so then I think Strava App or standard GPS devices are good enough for you.

But if you are a kind of cyclist who like to cycling on the mountain or beach, train several times a week, attend weekly group rides, and race on the weekends then middle to upper class GPS will be your best cycling companion.

If you know who you are then you will be able to see if the available features can support your cycling activity or not. This also means, you will know the right cycling GPS that suits your needs.

2. The ease of use
