Disabling foot and ankle conditions affect approximately 200 million European citizens. Over €300 million per annum is spent treating many of these people with orthoses and splints, often relying on hand-crafted manufacturing techniques which are slow, costly and difficult to reproduce. The overall objective of the A-FOOTPRINT project is to develop novel ankle/foot and foot orthoses for common disabling conditions which are cost-effective, high-speed to market and personalised for form and function.
