Details

This Back Brace was made using SLS PA-12 with moisture-proofing. The back brace helps support patients undergoing treatment for Scoliosis. Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that is usually caused during adolescence. It affects 2-3% of the world’s population, so hundreds of millions of people deal with the sometimes-severe symptoms that come with it, from pain to indigestion. The back brace helps straighten the patient’s posture. Conventional Back Braces are also often ill-fitting and uncomfortable. Conventional orthoses, also require additional supporting elements.

Using SLS technology we can manufacture the back brace with a mesh structure making the brace breathable and reducing skin irritation. Variable stiffness at different regions can also be incorporated into the model based on amount of material deposited. The 3D Printed back brace also does not require any additional supporting elements and is made in a single piece. All such braces are fully customized and are made using 3D scans of the patient making a significantly more comfortable and effective product.
