Ida Poortinga, a Master’s student of Biomedical Engineering, has won the IMDI Talent Prize. She developed a simple-to-use software application enabling hand therapists and also patients themselves to design their own finger splints. The digital design can then be sent to a company that can create the orthosis using a 3D printer. Finger splints usually have to be made by hand, which is time-consuming and the results are not finished very well.
The IMDI prize was instituted by ZonMW. Ida Poortinga’s graduation research project was awarded a plaque and a prize of € 1500.
