Andiamo Looks to Revolutionize the Way Kids Are Fitted with Orthotics

Andiamo is a company that produces 3D-printed orthotics for kids, cutting down on the mess of plaster and the many hours it takes to make custom braces the old way.

Rather than requiring a child with a disability to go to a clinic to get fitted for a brace, Andiamo is completely mobile and is designed to deliver a quick turnaround that's completely non-invasive. As compared to a process that takes about 13 weeks, this process takes about two days maximum.

In order to revolutionize the way children with disabilities are treated with 3D printing and scanning, Andiamo is currently raising funds on Indiegogo, aiming to raise enough money to cover the clinical and production costs of working with three families for a year.
