3D printing of orthotic devices: Evidence from the literature

By Shalmali Pal In the past two decades, additive manufacturing—commonly known as 3D printing—has evolved from a bleeding-edge, high-priced prototype with limited compositional materials to moderately priced systems with a wealth of manufacturing possibilities . Manufacturers of foot orthoses and ankle foot orthoses (AFOs) are taking advantage of this new technology, particularly as 3D printing’s price point of entry has decreased while its capabilities have increased.
