3D Printed Articulating Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO)

Our goal in redesigning ankle and foot solutions is to make devices more comfortable, lighter weight, and to provide more targeted control. That journey led us to the world of digital design and 3D printing.

3D printed devices are becoming more common in our industry. However, it’s important to look beyond the novelty of this fabrication process. Many designers and fabricators are beginning to focus on 3D printed orthotic design. What makes our 3D printed braces unique is the marriage between our unique modifications and the freedom we now have in how we make these devices.

Accurate

Right from the start, our models are more accurate. We digitally scan your ankle and foot instead of casting your foot with plaster or fiberglass. This results in an extremely accurate model of your anatomy. Furthermore, our scanning process also improves your overall experience. It’s clean and quick.

We use a 3D software program to design 3D printed braces. Support is placed exactly where you need it. Likewise, sensitive areas are protected.

3D Printed Supramalleolar Orthosis (SMO)

Streamlined

Fortunately, you can say ‘good-bye’ to multiple thick layers of plastics, lamination, and leather. We construct a solid structure molded to match the contours of your unique foot and ankle shape.

This is a sleek, modern design that fits more easily into your shoe. Also, you can choose from multiple colors, such as black, grey, purple, blue, pink, green, white, and clear.

3D Printed Functional Foot Orthosis (FO)

Our 3D printed foot and ankle solutions are appropriate for a number of conditions, such as planovalgus, cavovarus, and posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD).

Talk to your doctor to see if a 3D printed brace is a good option for you. To learn more, you and your doctor can contact our clinic in Durham and Henderson, North Carolina.
