3DPOD Episode 57: Prosthetics & Orthotics with Brent Wright (EastPoint Prosthetics & LifeNabled)

Share this Article

Brent Wright is a prosthetist and orthotist who uses 3D printing to help people regain function in their lives. Max and I both found talking to him to be super inspiring. Brent works for EastPoint Prosthetics & LifeNabled, as well as Additive America. In this wide-ranging conversation, we talk about HP Multi Jet Fusion, prosthetics sockets, wear, posterior cruciate ligaments, VarioShore TPU 3D printing filament, how to make an orthotic, and how to become a prosthetist. Needless to say, Max and I were both taken by the extremely motivating and wonderful work that Brent does. It’s also a 3D printing application that makes useful parts that are very valuable to patients. Check out the training, prosthetics, and work that Brent does here. $70 gets someone a knee.
