Measurement Solutions are able to supply a range of 3D measurement technologies that offer great possibilities for various sectors within the healthcare industry. They can be used to reduce turnaround times by replacing or skipping steps in traditional methods, and make the process seamless and worry-free for patients. They are your entry point to computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-assisted manufacturing (CAM). Here are just a few examples of how our 3D scanning technology has proven effective;

  • - Design and manufacture of orthosis/prothesis
  • - Design and manufacture of aesthetics prosthesis
  • - Treatment of plagiocephaly
  • - Wound healing & monitoring

 

Cranial Remoulding Orthosis

During their first months of life, some children will unfortunately develop plagiocephaly issues characterised by a flattening of some areas of the head. The problem is generally considered benign, but an intervention must be made very soon in the life of an infant, or the problem will otherwise become permanent.

Our 3D scanning products provide a rapid, non-invasive means of diagnosing cranial deformities, producing highly accurate 3D surface data for medical staff to fully understand the extent of the patient's needs.

Custom-made shoes

There are now over 7 billion individuals on our planet, and no two persons are exactly alike. We are all different from each other, and so are our feet. Shoemakers do their very best to design shoes that will fit the majority of people, but it is impossible to get a perfect fit for everyone. This can have a drastic effect, not only on patients with walking difficulties, but also in the case of sportsmen and women who require that perfect shoe fit to ensure the highest levels of performance in their chosen sport.

Our 3D scanning products offer fast and efficient ways to acquire 3D scan data so that shoes can literally be "made to measure".

Custom-made Orthotics

Orthotics is concerned with the design, manufacture and application of orthoses, which are externally applied devices used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the skeletal system. Orthoses are traditionally made by following a tracing of the extremity with measurements to assist in creating a well fitted device. This often necessitates the creation of a plaster of Paris mould of the body part in question.

Using the latest 3D scanning technologies, orthotics manufacturers no longer need to subject patients to time-consuming measurements and the need to produce plaster casts. A patient's body form can be quickly and accurately scanned to produce 3D data that can be used to manufacture orthoses from new materials such as thermoplastics, carbon fibre, and lightweight alloys. The same scanning systems can then be further utilised to accurately visualise the effects of applying orthotics to a patient's body to see how deformities have been adjusted over a period of time.

Custom-made Prosthetics

Prostheses are used to replace human body parts that have been lost by injury (traumatic) or missing from birth (congenital) or to supplement defective body parts. Probably the most important requirement for any patient requiring prostheses is a perfect "fit" of the replacement limb to the patient's body.

This is best seen in the development of functional prosthetics for sporting applications, where the replacement limb is designed to give the patient the ability to take part in a wide variety of sporting activities, with the pinnacle being the chance to compete in events such as the Paralympic Games.
