- •Two types of 3D-printed insoles with personalized metamaterials were designed.
- •Both 3D-printed insoles reduced plantar pressure in offloading regions (>200 kPa).
- •Both 3D-printed insoles did not induce any adverse events during testing.
- •3D-printed insoles show potential to improve the current standard of care.
