I was lucky enough to get to tour Bespoke Innovations with Scott Summit at 3D Systems recently. For those that aren’t familiar with Bespoke, they take 3D printing to a whole new level! Here’s a summary from their display in the Autodesk Gallery:
“Bespoke Innovations literally creates unique prosthetic limbs for every body. Using 3D software, scanning, and printing technology, Bespoke designs and prints individual, aesthetically appropriate prosthetic fairings specifically for each amputee.
Bespoke Fairings are specialized coverings designed to surround an existing, specific prosthetic leg. By performing a SD scan of the individual’s remaining, or ’sound side’ leg, or of a physically similar model if the amputee has lost both legs. Bespoke uses 3D design software and printing technology to precisely restore the unique contours of the lost limb.”
