There is very little, if any, published literature or clinical protocol on the use of lower limb prostheses manufactured on a 3D printer. This safety and feasibility pilot will fit adult and pediatric patients currently using the standard of care prosthesis with a 3D printed transtibial prosthesis. The 3D printed prosthesis will be evaluated through clinician evaluation of subject's comfort, gait, mobility and function, commonly provided as part of ongoing prosthesis care, as well as subject's and subject's parent/guardian's report of any adverse events, injuries or harm associated with wear of the 3D printed prosthesis.
