Key Software Capabilities

  • Lattice structures

Additive manufacturing offers many opportunities for prostheses design and production. For example, 3D printing the lattice structures directly onto the device has enabled the designer to manipulate critical parameters such as stiffness, impact absorption, and breathability.

In this nTop Live, Yuki Okada, Technical Marketing Engineer at nTop, shows you how to create patient-specific lower limb prosthesis sockets and apply the latest developments in prosthesis design. He shows you how to develop streamlined reusable workflows for mass customization of compression release stabilized sockets. 

The topic of this nTop Live was inspired by the work of Jade Myers, Research Development Specialist at RIT.

Watch and learn how to:

  • Streamline reusable workflows and customize your existing products
  • Generate smartly placed perforations using field-driven design
  • Generate and thicken lattices using field-driven design
