We’re Not Stumped Amputee Podcast S2 E14 with Joe Fairley from Ascent Fabrication

In this episode of the We’re Not Stumped podcast, I drink through a fire-hose when I learn about Joe Fairley and what he does with 3D printing. To say this gentleman is impressive with his knowledge and background is an understatement.

Joe is an ABC Certified Prosthetist & Board Eligible Orthotist, who has experience as a P&O technician before pursuing his Master’s in Prosthetics and Orthotics from Northwestern University (NUPOC). His BS in Physics and MS in Exercise and Sport Science equally compliment his clinical experience.

Joe has been at the forefront of revolutionizing digital workflows in the P&O domain. His expertise spans a multitude of areas, including additive manufacturing, CAD design, research and development (R&D), various 3D scanning methods, and instrumental contributions to the creation of two widely adopted modification software. He holds a patent for his work in continuous fiber fabrication for a modular lower limb prosthesis system. His achievements extend to publication in Prosthetics and Orthotics International and presentations at numerous P&O conferences.

Joe’s passion lies within the realm of prosthetics, where his innovation isn’t limited to digital workflows alone. He’s particularly dedicated to collaborating with individuals who utilize running prostheses and the pediatric amputee community. Beyond his professional pursuits, Joe is a devoted outdoors enthusiast, engaging in activities such as hiking (ADK 46er), camping, long-distance running (including marathons), skiing, and kayaking.
