EN The paper presents studies on design and additive manufacturing of individualized ankle foot orthoses (AFOs) for a patient with a spina bifida. Main aim of the presented research and practical work was to design a functioning, stable and usable pair of 3D printed leg orthoses, which could be used for walking, as well as swimming and performing various activities in the water. The customizable orthoses were designed using a prototype of AutoMedPrint system developed by the authors. Then they were 3D printed using FDM technology, of various materials. The processes of 3D scanning, design and manufacturing, as well as testing with the patient are presented. In the end, an usable orthosis was obtained, which will be further processed and its design automated.
