The NexStep and its offspring, the FirStep for children, are the world’s 1st 3D-printed prosthetic feet, offering a fast & customised solution for every amputee. The medical certification marks the end of the prototyping stage and kicks off the market launch of the NexStep.
A first pair of CE-certified prosthetic feet was digitally tailored to a patient only a week ago. The resulting CAD models were then produced in a certified 3D printing hub. Now, they will be sent to a medical professional practicing in Eastern Europe for the treatment of a young and active double-amputee. The patient was surprised about the quick delivery, as he usually had to wait 2-3 months for an individual prosthesis. Mecuris long-term goal is to ship custom prosthetics within 48 hours.
