Brett Tripp is the owner of Tripp Design, a design and 3D printing company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Brett was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at a young age and has been a patient advocate ever since. Frustrated with the lack of customizable options when it came to wearable medical devices to manage IBD, Brett created his own medical device using his design expertise. Using the small space in his garage, he started 3D printing custom ostomy wafers. He took this initial prototype to his physician and the idea launched from there. Brett now makes custom 3D printed wearable medical products for patients at the University of Michigan Hospital.
