3D printing within orthosis and prosthesis

Posted on Updated on

According to Garrett Harmon, application engineer at a 3D printing firm, “Essentium, explains why clinicians shouldn’t fear the introduction of 3D printing within orthosis and prosthesis. Advances in 3D printing machines, materials, and processes are putting new and powerful capabilities in the hands of Orthotic and Prosthetic (O&P) clinicians. With recent innovations in 3D printing platforms, O&P clinicians can seamlessly design and create bespoke devices that are lightweight, affordable, and comfortable for patients, more easily and efficiently than they can with traditional methods.”
