An area company is harnessing the power of additive manufacturing to change patients’ lives for the better, while building the tools to help others do the same.

Visit the home of Dayton Artificial Limb in Clayton, and you’re actually visiting three companies — the Dayton Artificial Limb clinic, Prosthetic Design, Inc. and Montgomery Motor Sports, which makes motorcycle parts.

What unites all of those businesses?

“Better, faster, cheaper, in a nutshell,” said Brad Poziembo, a prosthetist.

Prosthetic Design, located at 700 Harco Drive, Clayton, is using the speed and flexibility of additive manufacturing — or 3-D printing — to make artificial limbs and prosthetics faster and stronger.
