Andiamo is a social venture creating a new user-centred children’s orthotics service. Our aim is to drastically reduce wait times from 13 weeks to 48 hours, by using 3D scanning and printing technology.

We’re funded by Bethnal Green Ventures.

Outcomes

Shorter wait times and a service designed for the family will lead to significantly better outcomes for the child and cost savings for health services.

We’re currently getting ready to start prototyping the service in mid 2014. If you’re interested in working with us to make health services better please sign up here.

Our Mission

Scan

3D scanners are non invasive and accurate to within 0.1mm. They take 20 seconds rather than 10-30 minutes when using plaster.

Print

Using 3D printers we can reduce production time and re-design orthosis to make them more comfortable, beautiful, and fit in with the way they’ll be used in the real world.

Change Lives

These approaches will change the lives of disabled children and their families in many different ways. From better experiences to better medical outcomes.

We’re not a project anymore

As of March we're in the process of dropping the word project from our company name. Why? We've realise that there is a lot of long term planning and work that needs to be done and we're uncovering a lot more problems that need to be solved. We need to be a fully fledged company to start... Read more »

What’s happened since demo day?

We've been a bit remiss keeping up to date with blog posts since Monkigras but we'll be doing so shortly. The most important thing is that we're now getting ready to co-design a prototype service with families. With your help were going to completely re-design the way the orthotics service is...

3D Scanned and Printed Orthotic Prototype Zero – Part Two

You can read more about how Naveed made an accidental promise to create prototype zero here and the subsequent scanning in previous posts. We'll concentrate more on the preparation for and talk at Monkigras 2014 in this post. Preparing to Talk Whilst we had pitched and refined our idea... Read more »
