An orthopedic corset for scoliosis, breathable and entirely 3D printed. We are talking about Exos Armor, the project presented remotely at Maker Faire Rome 2021 by Exos, a company from Galzignano, in the province of Padua. Exos Armor is among the projects presented at Make To Care, the Sanofi contest that seeks innovative ideas for disability. Not only that.
Exos, having participated in Maker Faire Rome, will be one of the startups selected to be part of the Italian delegation of the Agency for the promotion abroad and the internationalisation of Italian companies (ICE) at CES Las Vegas, scheduled to take place from 5 to 8 January 2022.
«At Exos – explained Sofia Donà, a member of the startup team along with Jacopo Ranalli, Andrea Stangoni and Federico Ranalli. we make 3D-printed, breathable orthopedic corsets for scoliosis. Our devices are built in collaboration with partner orthopaedic clinics and are customisable in every aspect. The result is a product that greatly enhances the quality of life of the wearer. Compared to our competitors – she added – we use an original manufacturing process that allows us to produce devices of comparable quality but with significantly reduced costs and production time. At the same time, remote manufacturing allows us to expand easily, making our technology particularly useful in areas of the world with limited resources or access to healthcare».
