3D Scanning & Bracing Technology

At the forefront of orthotics and scoliosis management, we use state-of-the-art technology like 3D scanning, the pinnacle of imaging and impression technology

This cutting-edge process allows for real-time imaging of the body's exact contours and profiles without the use of radiation or harmful energy beams.

Fast, precise, and safe, 3D scanning opens up a new world of possibilities for the best patient care.

Custom Orthotic Design:
Tailored to Your Needs

Using the data gathered from the 3D scanning, we custom-design orthotic devices tailored to meet individual requirements. These advanced devices;

  • applies the precise amount of force needed to achieve the desired results
  • offers patients an optimal fit, ensuring comfort and efficacy
  • significantly reduces the margin for error compared to traditional methods
  • saves patients both time and money by reducing the need for multiple adjustment visits
  • can be infinitely replicated or modified and stored indefinitely for future reference, ensuring long-term care and progress tracking

Understanding the Power of 3D Scanning and 3D Bracing

3D scanning and 3D bracing have revolutionised the way we approach orthotics and scoliosis management. These technologies harness the power of digital imaging and play distinct but critical roles in improving patient outcomes.

Detailed Precision with 3D Scanning

3D scanning is an innovative leap in the field, providing accurate digital measurements of body parts without exposure to harmful radiation or laser light. This technology is integral in the design and manufacture of orthotic devices, including custom foot orthotics, spinal braces, and other supportive or corrective aids.

Unlike traditional methods, 3D scanning provides a detailed digital replica of the patient enabling precise and customised orthosis design. The ability to preserve and duplicate the initial scan allows for tailored device creation that perfectly aligns with specific design and functional requirements.

Incorporated simulation capabilities in design software enable practitioners to assess the potential effect of the orthotic device on the patient model. If the simulation falls short of expectations, the design can be modified or recreated using the original scan model. Also, archiving the 3D scan for future reference enables follow-up scans for progress tracking and outcome comparison.

3D Bracing: An All-Around Approach

3D bracing is a groundbreaking approach that fully considers the three-dimensional complexities of idiopathic scoliosis. Supported by extensive peer-reviewed research, this method outperforms traditional 2D bracing methods consistently.

However, it’s important to note that a 3D scan does not automatically result in a 3D brace. Adequate management of the three-dimensional aspects of idiopathic scoliosis requires a deep understanding of the condition and the assurance that the 3D back brace covers all three dimensions adequately.

Pioneering the Future of Orthotics and Scoliosis Management

3D scanning and 3D bracing signify substantial advancements in orthotics and scoliosis management. 3D scanning ensures precise measurements and improved orthotic design, while 3D bracing recognises the multidimensional nature of idiopathic scoliosis, promoting better treatment outcomes.

Through these groundbreaking technologies, we can tailor interventions to each patient’s unique needs, optimising the potential for successful outcomes and enhancing quality of life.
