A presentation by Helda Pahlavani, Faculty of 3mE, Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering, Delft University of Technology.
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”
A presentation by Pieter Slagmolen, Innovation Manager at Materialise.
Personalization is becoming increasingly important for medical devices, be it through the incorporation of predictive planning approaches or through patient-specific design of the devices with 3D printing.Continue reading “Planning automation for sustainable manufacturing in mass personalization”
