Father Helps Son With Cerebral Palsy Walk With Custom 3D Printed Orthosis

Seven years ago, Matej’s and Mateja’s son Nik was born one month prematurely. Due to difficulties during childbirth, he suffered severe brain damage that led to cerebral palsy. Despite the grim initial outlook, Nik was tremendously motivated to be mobile, but the symptoms of his condition prevented him from standing or walking on his own.

Matej set out with a simple goal: to enable Nik to walk. Months of research and development followed, resulting in a custom-made, 3D printed orthosis that provides support and correction exactly where Nik needs them, which finally helped him take his first steps independently.

Inspired by the immediate improvement, the young parents teamed up with experts and set out on a bigger mission to help improve the quality of life of other children and change the status quo in the healthcare industry by offering truly custom, patient-matched orthotics.
