My Orthotics

MyOrthotics would not have been possible to realize without the interest and case of Frank. The goal is to finish the orthosis in order to help Frank with his disability. Understanding how the digital fabrication can contribute to the improvement of this disability, and combining traditional techniques, for better results.

Bringing the Lab and the experiment from a very abstract and technical point of view to reality was a huge surprise for Frank, and it also brought hope and expectations for his new orthotic.

With the visualization of the 3D Scanning, model and prototype of his orthotic, he could live and understand the whole process. Making the the first prototype of the orthotic for my own hand, put me in the shoes of the patient, having only one hand for adjusting the things as the other one was occupied with the prototype, simulating the disability.
