Abstract:

This project compared nine 3-D printed foot orthotic (FO) designs to handcrafted FOs. Measurement were peak forces at heel strike and toe off and user evaluation questionnaires. The results show 3D printing in the orthotic provision process is feasible and has some benefits over handcrafted FOs.
