Dissemination and Income 

The dissemination of the project will be pursued through design contexts and by submitting the work to online platforms focused on the themes of: - wearables healthcare / medical devices - DiY prosthetics and orthotics - maker community - digital fabrication - open source hardware.

The results are shared in E-Nable Community and I expected to share this Project in the Global Humanitarian Lab. in order to extend this topic in the fab Labs and also look the possibilities to reproduce this concept in other DIY medical devices. As a first goal was the production of this MyOrthotics for Frank Miller help him. In terms of income, the project was not developed with a commercial purpose in mind. However, Potential funding for further development of the project will also be for competition for example medical devices or wearable devices call, other option could be to do a research project in cooperation with the university and the schools or European Union Call.

The additive processes in the medical(orthotics and Orthotics) area is highly explored, but in an very expensive way. How Fab Labs can cooperate in the development of individual devices. How this process can contribute to help people is being disseminated through my current work as a scientific assistant, I am responsible for teaching how to build 3D Printers and also how used it in a conscious form.
