In addition to creating 3D printed custom foot orthotics, our system can be also used to create 3D printed custom functional ankle foot orthotics (AFO).  Our 3D printed AFOs can be printed out by using the same desktop 3D printers for foot orthotics.  This 3D printed AFO is lighter, thinner and more importantly it matches the 3D shape of the plantar surface of a patient's foot.  In addition, we recommend that a AFO and a foot orthosis to be used as a pair in order to make sure both feet are standing on the same height.
