Protosthetics and Shabri Partner on In-Clinic 3D Printing Research

Fargo, ND – October 28th, 2022

Protosthetics and Shabri have announced a partnership to collaborate on the advancement of the application of digital design and additive manufacturing to the Orthotics and Prosthetics industry. The goal of this alliance is to document and better understand the ways to integrate 3D printing of O&P devices into the mainstream fabrication processes of O&P practices.


Protosthetics, with its Galileo program, is the leading managed 3D printing solution for in-clinic manufacturing of O&P products. Based in Fargo and founded in 2015, Protosthetics has served as a leading digital design and additive manufacturing central fabricator for the O&P industry. Shabri is a research and development organization focused on additive manufacturing in O&P, based in Hastings, Nebraska, and has been advancing research in the O&P space in conjunction with Biomechanics Department at University of Nebraska of Omaha since its founding.


Darren Jacoby, CEO of Protosthetics, says that “The partnership between Protosthetics and Shabri will leverage the scale of clinics and patients being served through the Galileo program with the research and clinical trials expertise of Shabri and its university partners. Through this collaboration, current and future Galileo clinics will be able to participate in validated, clinical trials focused on the development and advancement of 3D printed devices in the clinic, as well as get more value from the Galileo program as newly developed devices become available through the program.”


With the years of experience that Shabri brings with its clinical expertise and research work at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, the partnership is poised to advance the development and production of 3D printed prosthetics and orthotics components, as well as expand the amount of practical research in the O&P in the space.


"Shabri is delighted about this partnership with Protosthetics and excited to work together with Protosthetics’ Galileo program designed exclusively for O&P community,” said Rakesh Srivastava, President & CEO of Shabri and Innovative Prosthetics & Orthotics. “This partnership is a continuation of our efforts towards providing the very newest technologies to our O&P clinics and thoroughly understanding how best to integrate these innovations into a productive workflow." Rakesh Srivastava is also a Board Certified Prosthetist & Orthotist with over 25 years of working in the O&P industry and is one of the pioneer researchers in 3D printed upper extremity prosthetics.


About Protosthetics

Protosthetics was the first central fab facility in the United States to be based solely on 3D printing and CAD/CAM manufacturing.  Using this technology means lower costs, shorter lead times, and repeatable, predictable quality each and every time. The introduction of the Galileo System is now bringing 3D printing revolution directly to O&P practices in a new, cost-effective way.  Learn more about getting Galileo in your office by reaching out to
