Brace Yourself: 3D Printed Ankle Device Promises to Axe Sprains
EXO-L® lets you 3D scan and 3D print a strong and flexible ankle brace to prevent sprains
Currently, athletes use conventional braces constructed with metal and nylon, or athletic tape, to immobilize their joints and prevent sprains. Unfortunately, traditional methods can be problematic; braces are often uncomfortable and restrict flexibility, while tape is difficult to apply, often irritates the skin and becomes expensive when used frequently. Most athletes are forced to shave their ankles prior to application and that process alone can be painful and time consuming.
