Some identifying characteristics of a Mehta cast are:

  • It’s made with Plaster of Paris
  • The front has a mushroom-shaped chest expansion window
  • The cast has shoulder straps (it’s an “over the shoulder” cast)
  • Application by a Mehta-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeon
  • Petals made of moleskine cover the windows and cast edges
