Simulation for a better fit: Child friendly orthotics thanks to 3D Printing
from TCT Magazine
Following experiences with their own son, who needed custom fit orthotics (the medical term for externally worn body braces and splints), Naveed and Samiya Parvez saw a need for more rapid and less invasive methods to provide custom fit devices to children with movement difficulties. When they learned about the potential for rapid customization via 3D printing in combination with simulation technologies, they approached design and simulation experts at Altair to explore whether the technology could be applied to the complex world of children’s orthotics.
