Yong Li, a former engineer at Toyota, discussed his development of his 3-D print orthotics lab, OLT Footcare. He is in development stages of a 3-D print diabetic orthotic. Patient Compliance was a theme for the segment and Dr. Pearl added that getting orthotics in the hands of patients in less than 48 hours has greatly improved both patient compliance and satisfaction.
