High-tech orthotics start-up: Zdravprint, the Moscow-based start-up that is using 3D printing technology to produce customised splints for the healthcare sector, has secured over $4m investment capital from the New York based VC firm Maxwell Capital. Its technology allows doctors to create specifically programmed splints for patients, based on the size of the damaged limb. The measurements of the limb can be entered into a phone app, with the splint then delivered straight to the hospital. Zdravprint believes that the market in Russia alone could be worth more than $100m.
