Orthotic and prosthetic applications, two medical specialities within the field of healthcare technology, require scanning the human body with non-contact devices in order to design and manufacture orthoses or prostheses.

As prosthetic and orthotic physicians, professionals, or technicians, you want to assist your patients in leading a functionally normal lifestyle with good quality orthoses or prostheses that they find comfortable. Nevertheless, you are not 3D scanning experts. Therefore, you need to find a simple 3D scanning tool and user-friendly software that you can master in just a short period of time and without undergoing extensive training. In addition, to optimize scanning sessions with patients, you should be able to install the tool and be ready to scan in less than 5 minutes in any kind of environment.

Creaform Solution

Creaform’s 3D scanning technologies offer great possibilities for the healthcare industry. They make the process seamless and worry-free for patients, and they enable you to create perfect physical shapes, from capturing the body part to bringing the shape into the software for modification and production. Moreover, you are assured of consistent results regardless of who performs the scan and in what conditions.

Safe, intuitive, versatile, and quick to set up, 3D scanning devices for human body 3D measurements make it easier than ever to capture the complex and organic shapes of the body.

  • Safety:

    With white light technology, the scanning session is completely eye-safe, even for babies, as well as being accurate, constant, and reliable.
  • Movement tolerance:

    Due to advanced optical technology, the scanner tolerates slight movements from the patient. Therefore, it’s easy to scan a baby’s head for a cranial helmet, even when he or she moves, or a torso, even with the patient breathing.
  • Versatility and speed:

    With advanced laser technologies and limitless scanning volumes, 3D scanners can measure both large body parts (e.g., torso in 90 seconds) and small body parts (e.g., feet in 40 seconds) with the same precision.
  • Real time:

    With instant display, the scan is shown in real time on the computer screen to facilitate the scanning session and to see when the scan is complete and good.

3D Modeling For Phased-array Inspections In Aerospace Industry

To ensure the safety of passengers and proper maintenance of equipment, inspections of surface impact damage on aircraft parts and structure must be performed.

Developing, manufacturing, and inspecting a casting of superior quality in less time

Discover how 3D scanning technologies helps casting inspections and casting manufacturing. Get strategies to improve your casting product development process.

Aerospace Maintenance

Reactors and turbines are costly, essential pieces of equipment that usually have to undergo regular maintenance. The high cost of such equipment justifies repairs at times complex for problems such as deterioration. To determine the repairs required, warping or loss of material due to wear is to be precisely measured.

Replacing headers on a main steam piping system at a power generating facility

Replacing headers on a main steam piping system at a power generating facility is challenging. Often, CAD models are no longer available. Therefore, engineers have to design the replacement parts by dealing only with the physical parts.

Power Turbine Component Analysis - 3D Scanning

No matter if the objective is to inspect, repair or modify power generation turbine components, the challenges remain the same: access to the components and stability of the measurement setup. The components that require measurement like impeller blades, guide vanes or casings are always located in tight spaces with difficult access.

3D Modeling For Phased-array Inspections In Power Generation And Energy

Power generation components and structures must be inspected to assess the level of degradation and remaining service life. Power generation organizations are facing mounting challenges of inspecting complex components that are part of a very intricate assembly and cannot be taken out for inspection purposes.
