With 3D scanners, professionals can obtain complete and accurate 3D data of the scanned object in a short time. This precise data can be used to support customization of medical supplies such as prosthetics, prostheses, rehabilitation protectors, orthopedic braces and so on.
3D Scanning in Healthcare
3D scanning technology is widely applied to medical beauty, medical equipment, biomedical engineering, orthopedics surgery, digital dentistry, etc., gradually becoming the foundation of technical innovation in the medical field.
Explore some common applications
3D scanning together with 3D printing can be used to create stunning, low-cast prosthetics for anybody in need. With just a quick 3D scan, a 3D model can be generated then 3D printed to comfortably and reliably fitted and worn.
3D scanning enables you to get personal, full body scans to create custom wheelchairs for your patients. This can be done quickly, affordably and with high-quality accurate data in order to ensure the wheelchair is built intricately to fit your patients perfectly. Comfort for patients is a priority.
With 3D scanning, you can skip the messy, expensive, time-consuming plaster casts. Instead, jump straight into capturing full body scans of your patients to quickly and affordably achieve accurate 3D models of patients bodies for the use of creating reliable braces.
With 3D scanning, your dental practice can deliver perfectly aligned high-quality implants to your patients at an affordable price in less than 24 hours from when they first walk in the door. Your patients can also visualize in realtime how their final teeth will look and integrate with their entire smile and face.
