Mecuris has numerous digital solutions that can be fully tailored to help existing orthoses & prostheses workshops incorporate 3D printing into their workflow.
Advancements in 3D technology are quickly revolutionising the design and development of orthoses & prostheses. Startups like Andiamo, for example, have sped up the process, so growing children have properly fitted devices.
However, much of this new technology isn’t designed to integrate with existing workflows. It’s either technology that is only used in-house or requires expensive specialist training. That has left a gap in existing orthoses & prostheses centres that want to incorporate more digital tools but don’t have the access.
Mecuris has provided the answer with tailored solutions that work with the clinics to develop digital workflows. No knowledge of 3D printing is required to get started; the tools are designed to be intuitive and reliable. Orthopaedic technicians and physicians can get up and running with the ability to scan patients and 3D-print components in very little time.
Incorporating 3D-printing and other digital tools has a vast range of benefits. The results are more precise and less prone to human-error, components can be made faster, and are more customisable to suit personal needs and tastes. The patient is completely involved in the design process to customise the prosthesis and see exactly the appearance following a body scan. The scan is performed using the camera on a tablet, and the measurements are used to create the accurate individual aid. The current products offered are their prosthetic foot, night splints and covers.
