Abstract

Objective 1: At the conclusion of this poster session, participants will be familiar with low cost 3-D printing and scanning options. Objective 2: At the conclusion of this poster session, participants will have increased knowledge of the process of 3-D printing. Objective 3: At the conclusion on this poster session, participants will have increased understanding to what needs to take place to translate 3-D scanning and printing into Occupational Therapy clinics. Three-dimensional (3-D) printing represents an evolving technology still in its infancy. In recent years, 3-D printing and scanning has become more and more commonplace in healthcare settings. Dentists are now using 3-D scanning to create plaster casts, and plastic surgeons are using 3-D scanning and printing to fabricate custom breast implants to replacing soft tissue. Prosthetists are using 3-D scanning to achieve better prosthetic fit. 3-D printing and scanning allows Occupational Therapists a different avenue when considering adaptive technology and fabricating custom orthotics. This poster session will focus on determining the essential equipment for 3-D scanning and printing, while exploring 3-D scanning and printing options. We will discuss the possibilities and implications of the use of 3-D technology in Occupational Therapy. We will also project the needs to translate the technology of 3-D printing and scanning into the Occupational Therapy clinic. Gerstle, Theodore L. M. D., Ibrahim, Ahmed M. S. M. D., Kim, Peter S. M.
