Abstract

Three dimensional (3d) printer technologies are rapidly developing and increasingly being used in several fields. In this study, as a first step a 3d printer is constructed by modifying open source hardware and controlled by improving open source software. Subsequently, an ankle foot orthosis (AFO) is designed and constructed by using this 3d printer.
