Digital Workflow in Orthotics

27 September 2023  |  Sabina Gonzalez-George


Digitising your manufacturing using 3D scanning and 3D printing in Orthotics brings a number of benefits, from exact patient fit to low cost and fast manufacturing.




Exact patient fit, optimised to patient’s needs

Customisable & extendable designs for longevity

Better product design, improved functionality & light-weighting




Fast turnaround, short lead times

Low cost & repeatable costs

No minimum quantity for manufacturing


High quality, accurate 3D scanners enable individual patient data to be gathered. The digital files are easily edited to produce parts and components that are an exact fit and light-weighted, which are then 3D printed using SLS technologies. Using SLS technology is ideal for Orthotics as it allows freedom of design with complex geometries to be produced at a fine finish in a range of rigid, flexible and soft materials.
