The paper presents design and manufacturing process of an individualized wrist orthosis. The patient’s upper limb was 3D scanned and the orthosis was design using a CAD system. Each part of the orthosis consists of two different materials, that fulfill different functions. By using the double-head Fused Deposition Modelling machine it was possible to produce theses parts in a single process without the need for additional assembly operations. The orthosis has been tested for mutual fit of parts, strength and comfort of use.
