3D Printing, the Disruptive Technology for World Manufacturing has a New Patent Granted to Renowned Inventor Donald Spector

NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lisa Pamintuan, President of New York College of Health Professions announces the issuance of US Patent #8,583,272 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. This new patent will not only change the cost curve for customized orthotic and orthopedic inserts, but will also make inserts available to millions of people and may prevent back hip, knee and foot problems in later life. 

Donald Spector, Chairman of New York College of Health Professions and one of the most prolific inventors in the world, has patented a system whereby 3D scanners and printers can analyze skeletal structures and produce customized orthopedic inserts to correct postural problems in minutes for a fraction of the price of traditional orthopedic inserts.

"Orthopedic inserts have traditionally been made by casting which takes weeks and costs hundreds of dollars, thereby often preventing access to such treatments for many," said President Pamintuan. "Most people use over-the-counter insoles that don't take into account the compensation and bending of the spine to create equal pressure in the feet." 

Pamintuan, who was a tennis professional and played at Wimbledon and the US Open was injured during her career. "These technologies will be great for athletes at all levels as well as the general population. With an aging population, chronic pain problems are increasing."
