This 3D printed rehabilitation orthosis was developed and fitted to a specific person’s hand and probably won’t fit other people unless the source files are properly adjusted in 3D modeling software. ZMorph and Eliza Wrobel who designed this device are releasing these source files only for educational and hobby non-commercial use.

This is not a certified rehabilitation device and shouldn’t be used as one!

The free package contains 58 files that enable 3D printing of all parts needed to assemble the 3D printed rehabilitation orthosis working prototype.

After unzipping the package there are folders dedicated to all functional sections of the orthosis. Follow the next steps and check the Assembly Guide for details on how to connect specific parts.

You can also read more about the making of 3D printed rehabilitation orthosis on our blog.

Enjoy and remember that any type of medical or other commercial use is prohibited!

Step 1: 3D Printing From STL Files

STL files can be easily transformed into G-codes in 3D printing software and prepared for printing. Smaller parts can be printed in the required number of copies - just multiply them in your 3D printing software.

You can also open several files and put them on a worktable in 3D printing software. We used free Voxelizer software and then printed the entire prototype on ZMorph 2.0 SX Multitool 3D Printer.

We recommend using ABS filament for the entire device.

In the next step, you can find the number of copies of each part you need for assembling the device.

<p>When importing set, they are all on top of each other. Is there a way to set the Voxelizer settings to import the pieces all flat on the surface, so they can be printed together (the finger parts, not the main husk)?</p>
<p>You can use auto-align option, it will place the objects over the table. </p>
have you soucre files?
<p>They're in a ZIP package at the beginning of the article.</p>
<p>Here we are :)</p>
<p>Nicely done! It gives me hope for the future to see people using 3D printing for practical, useful work.</p>
Great work, Thank you
