3D Printed Variable Hardness Foot Orthotics
In 2012, 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population, had diabetes[1]. At any given moment, between 4-10% of diabetics have a diabetic foot ulcer. Over a lifetime of diabetes, more than 25% of diabetic patients will have a diabetic foot ulcer. In 3-5% of cases, the ulcer will become serious enough that an amputation is required to save a lim...
