Orthotics are external devices that act on the limbs or trunk of the human body on the basis of human biomechanics to protect the stability of the limbs; prevent and correct limb deformities; treat bone, joint, nerve and muscle diseases and functional compensation.
Traditional orthoses have uniform specifications and are not well suited to patients. The emergence of 3D printed orthoses can allow orthoses to play the best role and give patients a more comfortable and convenient experience.
The 3D printed orthosis is customized. By scanning the patient’s body part, a 3D model map is built, and then the model is printed out through 3D printing, which can better fit the patient.
3D printed orthotics require the printed materials to have good mechanical properties, good toughness, and harmless to the human body. In the past, nylon materials were generally used for printing, because nylon materials have good mechanical properties, but nylon 3D printers The size is not enough to print, for everyone’s orthosis can not be printed as a whole, can only be printed separately, which affects the function of the orthosis.
Now there are high-strength and high-toughness photosensitive resins, which are stronger and tougher than ordinary photosensitive resins in the past, and can be used in the actual use of orthotics. Moreover, the moldable size of resin printing is larger and can be used for large The size of the orthosis is formed in one piece, all of which are now used to replace some large-size nylon-printed orthoses.
The above is the introduction of 3D printing high-strength and toughness resin orthoses and large-size medical orthoses in one piece by 3D-printing-china.com 3D printing service. I hope to provide you with a reference.
