ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork has dealt with foot pain for many years and Dr. Sadrieh suggested he try 3D printed orthotics to address his big toe arthritis and improve his gait. Dr. Sadrieh explains the technology performs a 3D scan for a patient's feet and captures a high-resolution image of the bottom of the feet, a scan of what the foot is doing when someone walks, which all helps produce an orthotic device that is unique to each patient.
The Doctors note the importance of feet and explain how someone walks and stands affects their other joints and the back.
After getting fitted with his custom 3D printed orthotics, Dr. Travis says he feels "an incredible amount of support" and that he feels less pressure on his toes with arthritis.
