On a scale of one to ten, the hype about the limitless potential of 3D-printing reached eleven points. However, the excitement about the new custom orthoses generative printed on a 3D-printer is quite justified, because the latest development in the field of prosthetics and orthotics may be revolutionary.
Orthosis – this medical device external use,intended for adjusting the structural and functional characteristics of the neuro-muscular and skeletal systems. Most of us at least once in their lives had to break a leg or arm and wearing bulky floppy gypsum. As a result of cooperation and MHOX CRP Group with the medical professionals was designed brace new generation that is printed on the 3D-printer, designed to limit and control the movements of the damaged segments the body.
Flexible brace is based on the washable polyamide, reinforced with fiberglass. To create each model is performed accurately scan the damaged area of the body of the patient. Device skintight part of body,requiring fixation, with only a minimal loss of the natural range of motion and passing a sufficient amount of air, thus preventing the development of pruritus.
Earlier, at fracture hands or feet, had long enough wear heavy bulky gypsum, which not only paralyzed the movement, but also cause itching, skin irritation and odor. New generation of 3D-orthoses can radically turn the approach to the treatment of fractures and injuries, making the healing process the easy and convenient
