Professor Jim Woodburn, Dr Scott Telfer and Paul Charlton talk about the project and how it will help bring an understanding of the complex structure of the foot and how it works at an individual level, to influence the design and manufacture of customised products via 3D printing, which will ultimately enhance the individual patient experience.
BBC News visited Glasgow Caledonian University to find out more about the application of additive manufacturing technologies to develop innovative orthotic products. Professor Jim Woodburn and Dr Scott Telfer talk about the use of 3D printing techniques to produce customised insoles and splints which could help millions of people with disabling foot and ankle conditions.
BBC Look North visited Peacocks' Laboratory in Newcastle to celebrate the history and successes of the company. Colin Peacock talks about the use of 3D capture and 3D printing technologies used by the technical team at their state-of-the-art facilities funded as part of the A-FOOTPRINT project, used to develop new innovative customised orthotic products.
An overview of a patient's journey is presented, from assessment through to supply of customised orthotic products, using the A-FOOTPRINT on-site manufacturing model.
