Tumbling through the air Freya had just enough time to contemplate the wisdom of going off-piste without implanting a route guide before she hit the ground with a sickening crunch. The drifts were thankfully soft enough that she didn't lose her body but it didn't take the red damage reports flashing in her retinas to tell her how badly her arm had broken. Sitting up she glanced at the extreme angle her lower left arm now sported, like a second elbow had formed halfway to the wrist. Her implants had dulled any pain but reading their prognosis Freya saw it would take several days for the medicytes in her blood to repair the damage.
With a humble sigh she reached into her pack and took out a large disk; as wide as her outstretched palm and as thick as her thumb. The fabric of her sleeve carefully retracted, revealing the red tinged flesh beneath (bruised but not bleeding). Placing the surgicon over her arm she watched as it handshaked with her medisystem. Within moments it was flowing like melted wax until it enveloped her arm from wrist to elbow (the real one). With sudden, graceful movements it flexed through a series of motions and snapped her arm back into the right configuration. Through her medisystem she sensed hundreds of hair-thin fibres penetrate her skin. Skirting vasculature they sought out bone fragments to digest, fractures to re-bond and released a slew of biological factors to herd her wounded tissues back to proper function.
The prognosis displayed in her right eye re-evaluated; 60% functionality to be returned in one hour, 90% two hours after that. At which point the surgicon would detach ready for recycling whilst her medisystem smoothed over the final adjustments. As she stood her sleeve fabric rolled back over her arm (bulging to accommodate the smart cast). With a thought to her implants her boot skis redeployed. With somewhat more caution she continued down the mountain.
