This week we finally were able to start some printing with our new 3D Printer - Pro SLS 6100.
We're excited to start some testing and ready to provide some 3D printed orthotics to our patients here at Korthotics.
If you're interested in getting some 3D printed orthotics, speak to one of our orthotists today!
This is Somkhit's story:
Somkhit contracted poliomyelitis at an early age. He has extensive muscle loss and weakness in his lower limb. Since the age of 5, he had multiple cuff top KAFOs.
Somkhit was fitted with metal KAFO in 2012.
In December 2018, Somkhit was fitted with an e-mag carbon fibre KAFO (Knee Ankle Foot Orthoses). In conjunction with extensive physiotherapy and an interim trial. Somkhit was able to achieve his goals without the use of gait aids.
