The patient-specific (PS) design of prosthetics and orthotics is a common approach to design various medical devices (e.g., transtibial sockets). Such PS designs are based on the patient’s anatomy obtained from different medical imaging modalities thus allowing for better fixation and improving the patient’s comforts and enabling successful rehabilitation.Continue reading “Design and additive manufacturing of devices for orthotics and prosthetics”
Additive manufacturing technologies have been revolutionizing the design and manufacturing of medical devices in particular by its ability for personalization and design freedom, that can bring great improvements for the design and manufacturing of scoliosis braces.
