One of the avenues I am investigating is the problem of foot ulceration, common in diabetes sufferers. This can lead to a serious chain of events leading to over 6000 related amputations a year in the UK. It is estimated that about 80% of these are preventable. Treatment costs to the NHS in the UK are in excess of £650m/annum. It is hoped that a low cost custom insole that is sympathetic to the patients requirements could help dramatically in this scenario.

I see 3D printing taking the initiative and leading the solutions once again.

This is my latest insole creation. A variable density infill print from a foot scan in Filaflex.
