Ankle Foot Orthotic
Prescription Footware Associates Ltd. (PFA) produce sheet formed orthotics for patients with weak joints. They were looking to digitize production of their medical orthotic range which was previously manually manufactured and required skilled artisans. Printable STLs taken directly from point cloud data was used to replicate leg shape without manual tooling. This data direct from user shape was easier to modify in CAD than conventional manufacture and leads to AM production part. It also lead to optimised structures and made-to-fit parts.
