Responsible for the design and production of this arm splint is the 3D printing company Whiteclouds. The company first performed a 3D scan of Davis's arm and then designed a splint with shock absorption. The splint is made of plastic and rubber. Holes are also placed on top to reduce weight and improve breathability.

It is understood that the engineering process of the entire device took only 8 hours. 3D printing used Stratasys' Connex industrial grade 3D printer , which took a total of 30 hours. After the production was completed, Whiteclouds gave the splint to Davis in the shortest time so that the latter could have enough time to prepare for the weekend's Super Bowl.

3D Elite, which specializes in 3D printing splints and dies for athletes, collaborated with Whiteclouds in this project. “Thomas Davis has become the kind of “biochemical person” we saw in the novel,” Scott Perone of 3D Elite said in a press release: “This personalized 3D splint with Poron XRD lining makes it He is even more indestructible.” The Poron XRD is a soft, flexible material designed to absorb vibration and protect against shocks.

Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera is open to Davis's participation in the Super Bowl, although Davis's fracture is healing. "If the doctor says he is 100% ok, I will listen to the doctor," Rivera said. According to Whiteclouds, Davis will be the first NFL player in history to participate in a 3D printing device.
