UNYQ’s 3D printed Align scoliosis brace will be displayed at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum
Specialized in the development and production of customized 3D printed prosthetics and orthotics, UNYQ created the 3D printed Align scoliosis in collaboration with Studio Bitonti.
Francis Bitonti, CEO of Bitonti Studios explained that “with UNYQ Align, [they] removed what used to be a cumbersome hand-molding fabrication process and replaced it with topographic anatomical analysis and 3D printing capabilities. This significantly changes the brace fit, function, and wearability. It is wonderful to have the minimal UNYQ Align brace on display to showcase such an important integration of fashion, technology, and design.”
Furthermore, a digital modeling software enables users to 3D scan, model, and 3D print their useful and fashionable back braces.
UNYQ CEO Eythor Bender and his team “are honored that [their] work with Studio Bitonti is being recognized at the Smithsonian.” Most important, it does represent a true “evolution in scoliosis care.”
