3D Printed, Fashionable Back Braces Encourage Kids With Scoliosis To Wear Them
Personalized medical devices for young adults improve the chances of treatment success.
Scoliosis braces have come a long way since they were first invented, but 3D Systems wants to create something a bit more personal. The company released plans for “Bespoke” on Monday, which is a 3D-printed brace that can be tailored to the backs of children and young adults who suffer from the condition. Millions of people have to deal with the fact their spines curve at a sideways angle, but the hope is the 3D-printed brace can give them a new way to express their individuality.
