Aortha announces full launch of 3D insoles

Aortha in late April announced that it will move forward in early 2016 with a full launch of its 3D-printed insole technology.

The company previewed its technology, which can print a pair of custom, multidensity insoles in an hour, at the British Association of Prosthetists & Orthotists Conference in Manchester, UK, in March, as well as at the combined meeting of the Pedorthic Association of Canada and Prescription Foot Orthotic Laboratory Association in Vancouver, Canada, in April.

The OrthaPrint 3D printer uses OrthaFlex material, which has high elasticity to allow for high-speed printing.

Positive response at the March and April events led the company to green light a full launch, according to a statement from Hugh Sheridan, CEO of Aortha’s parent company ALG International Holdings, based in Liverpool, UK.
