In orthotics, innovation meets efficiency with GO Orthotics diving into 3D printing. Founder Tim Ganley reveals how teaming up with Stratasys and their H350™ SAF™ technology printer changed their go to market game.

3D Printing for Better Orthotics

GO Orthotics took the lead in orthotic manufacturing by exploring 3D production. Tim says, “We just couldn’t do what we do now with traditional manufacturing methods. 3D printing really opened up new opportunities to create better outcomes for patients.” GO Orthotics looked beyond old-school methods of manufacturing to make improvements to their process.

Precision Printing with the H350 and PA11

The H350‘s SAF technology helped GO Orthotics save money without skimping on quality. Tim loves how the printer nests foot orthoses efficiently, cutting costs per part. The High Yield PA11 material, made from castor seeds, ensures top-notch finish, accuracy, and flexibility, boosting durability and therapeutic benefits.

Go Orthotics Collaboration

Designs Made Easy

Printing with PA11 lets GO Orthotics create intricate designs, giving clients more options. Tim adds, “We can make our orthotic designs much more intricate, varying thickness, adding reinforcing areas, and blending flexibility. Ultimately, 3D printing of orthotics has enabled greater choice for our clients when it comes to orthotic prescription and design specification.” GO orthotics can now play with file settings to get their clients the best possible parts.

GO Orthotics made sure clients were on board with the switch to 3D printing. By showing off positive results and addressing concerns, they built trust with key clients. The hands-off process of the H350 sped up production, freeing up staff for finishing touches and specialized custom covers and padding.
