Multi layered structures potentially can store more energy thus can enable more change.

The aim of the orthosis is to combine the compression of bandages with the targeted immobilization of orthoses. The approach is to achieve compression by means of the circumferential elasticity of a polyester circular knitted fabric. Stabilization is achieved by means of printed structures in FDM print. PLA is used as the printing material. The joint is modelled on a mechanical spring element. The geometry of the spring element can be designed according to the patient's individual requirements.
