2008년 5월 20일

Lévis, Québec, May 21, 2008 – Creaform, developer and distributor of the Handyscan 3DTM line-up of self-positioning handheld laser scanners, today launched the ERGOscan, a laser scanner developed uniquely for medical applications.

The truly portable, self-positioning handheld ERGOscan laser scanner delivers great benefits for the medical and biomechanics industries. The ERGOscan is a highly innovative 3D scanning device that has proved to be extremely useful and efficient in the fields of orthotics, prosthetics, and related applications. Providing rapid shape acquisition with very high measuring accuracy, the ERGOscan technology allows the production of customized and perfectly-fitted orthopedic devices in significantly less time.

The ERGOscan’s range of applications runs from orthotics/prosthetics to cranial scans, plastic/aesthetic surgery, podiatrics and wound care. Among others, the ERGOscan enables the custom manufacturing of artificial limbs or body part replacements; loaded/unloaded 3D digital impressions (foot imprints); treatment of positional plagiocephaly in infants; and 3D scanning of body parts in order to manufacture perfectly fitted and exact match prosthesis/orthesis or reconstruction.
The ERGOscan offers numerous benefits, including laser-accurate measurement, a completely eye-safe laser (class I laser), and rapid data acquisition and file transfer. Plus, the ERGOscan is user-friendly, non invasive, lightweight, truly portable and tolerant to slight movement. It is the perfect solution for 3D archiving and a great alternative to traditional, tiresome and messy casting methods.
