Eva de Goede using Artus3D printed brace
During one of the matches for the first Women’s Euro Hockey League (EHL), Dutch hockey star Eva de Goede fractured her left wrist after a collision with the German team’s goalkeeper Amy Gibson. The future felt bleak for this three-time Olympic medalist as she underwent surgery and saw her preparations for the upcoming Olympics severely hampered. However, a special, custom-made postoperative 3D printed brace to support her wrist made it possible for her to rejoin the squad in time for the EuroHockey Championship held in June 2021. With her special brace, the team captain went on to win a historic 11th and third consecutive EuroHockey Championship title for the Dutch women’s team, beating Germany 2-0 in the final.
