A traditional spinal brace would usually consist of creating a plaster cast of a patient's torso, which is inherently difficult and uncomfortable to perform. These 3D-printed corsets by doctor Lelio Leoncini make use of new technologies in order to create the perfect accessories for ensuring optimal support.

Leoncini has joined the WASPmedical team, which focuses on enabling a larger-scale operation in order to create the corsets for scoliosis patients. Aesthetically, the spinal braces are quite pleasant to look at and are more contoured to the body of the patient than what would otherwise be possible with traditional methods. This helps to ensure the optimal level of comfort and support to enable a better lifestyle to be lived without having to worry.
