A Closer Look at the Manus x Machina Dresses 3D Printed by Materialise

Exploring the tension between traditionally hand-made haute couture and machine-made off-the-shelf clothing, the exhibition featured no less than five dresses 3D-printed by Materialise!

The Hibbot: Teaching Children with Cerebral Palsy to Walk, One Step at a Time

Meet Yano De Laet, a young boy who suffers from cerebral palsy. He was one of the first test subjects for the 3D-printed Hibbot, a device which enables children with cerebral palsy to walk unaided, and with their hands free. By using the device, children can train their pelvic muscles and improve their walking skills - to the point that they can sometimes avoid being confined to a wheelchair later in life! Discover Yano’s story here.

We hope 2017 will be just as exciting and innovative as 2016 has been. You can follow our latest projects on our website or on the Materialise blog.
