Windform Used to Build Generative Orthotics

In conjunction with MHOX Design, CRP Group has created bespoke orthosis to correct misaligned limbs.

Developed over a year-long period, MHOX Design used generative design methods to create objects that can integrate appropriately with the human body.

Unlike traditional design methods that create a shape based on the designers wants, generative design uses a set of inputs and algorithms to determine a products final form.

To build their new orthosis, MHOX engineers began by gathering a 3D scan of their patient’s limb. With an accurate model of their patient’s limb, designers merged that information with a unique algorithm to complete a digital model of the custom prosthetic.
