Light, colourful, customised

3D printing at Pohlig

With 3D printing technology, aids can first be digitally designed and then printed out layer by layer. In orthopedic technology, we mainly use 3D printing to produce particularly light, flexible and at the same time highly functional aids.

We will show you how an orthopedic aid is created using the 3D printing process.

Now also available as PRINTORTHESE®

The new AFO

The advantages of a printed ankle-foot orthosis compared to a conventional polypropylene orthosis are its low weight, thin-walled, durable surface and aesthetic design.

The new PHAO

In cooperation with the Aschau Children’s Clinic, we developed a dynamic abduction orthosis that enables restful sleep. The PHAO (Pohlig Hip Abduction Orthosis) keeps the hips in the necessary medical abduction position, but only restricts the mobility of hip and knee joints as much as is absolutely necessary.

FIRST prosthesis

Arm prosthesis for infants with interchangeable attachments

Depending on the cognitive development, an initial fitting with the FIRST prosthesis is suitable from the age of 14 months. The innovative system, which adapts to the individual needs of the child at different ages, consists of various components that we put together according to the child's requirements. The result is an arm prosthesis that is easy for children to handle, suitable for everyday use and, above all, very varied with its different attachments.

Self-powered orthosis for children with spina bifida

Pohlig PowerHip®

The PowerHip® self-powered orthosis was primarily developed for children with spina bifida. The device, which is individually adapted to the patient’s body and created using 3D printing, transfers the force from the mostly strong knees of the child to the weak hip. This means that the orthosis actively stretches the hips – using its own leg strength!

Many children with spina bifida can move better because of the PowerHip®, and are more mobile overall.

First we simulate your orthosis – then we make it

Correction simulation with SimBrace®

SimBrace® is an innovative process that allows you to verify the corrective function of the orthosis before it is manufactured for the patient. Thanks to modern scanning technology, we can dispense with the usually unpleasant plaster cast, such as that in corset manufacturing.

Suit against spastics

The Exopulse Mollii Suit activates muscles

Susanne has had multiple sclerosis (MS) for 28 years. When she wears the Exopulse Mollii Suit soft orthosis for an hour a day, she has less pain and can sleep better at night without waking up due to spasticity.

The full-body suit uses the principle of electrostimulation. Because Susanne's stiff muscles relax as a result of the stimulation, she is more mobile overall in everyday life and can move her partially paralysed left side of her body better.

Tricking the brain

VR for the treatment of phantom limb pain

Pohlig and the DLR (German Aerospace Center) are working together on a research project that investigates virtual reality as a suitable therapy method for phantom limb pain patients who have had their arms amputated.
