3D scanning in O&P - the first step towards digitization


Neither plastering nor physically working in the plaster room is a major advantage of using digital processes in orthopedic technology. This is because you can work on a digital model in the Mecuris Solution Platform much more easily, quickly and flexibly than on a traditional plaster cast.

Why you should switch to using 3D scanners:

Cleaner work: No plaster cast, no plaster room, no materials for plastering, no plaster warehouse

With a 3D scan, you’ll save yourself the physical work in the plaster room as well as the materials needed for plastering and all the associated process steps. No more drying out of the hands and no more lifting of heavy torso casts - your back will thank you!

Comfortable for the patient, mobile working possible

A 3D scan is more comfortable for most patients than a traditional plaster cast. You can scan your customer in an uncorrected posture. In addition, a 3D scanner packs up quickly and makes it easier to work with during home or clinic visits. This is all possible because a 3D scanner can be used digitally, for example as an attachment on a tablet.

Acquisition & documentation of patient geometry and easy data modification

Due to the intuitive handling of the scanners and the wide range of functions of the software, the users’ digital impressions can be made easily, cost-saving and quickly. Modifying the scan is therefore much easier than with a plaster cast. Plus, saving scans is also not bound by any spatial limits.

Reproducible modification of the virtual model

Do you need a growth adjustment, but don't want to plaster and model again? No problem. Using scanning technology in combination with our software, you can adapt and scale your old scan to new dimensions. This way, not only are you protecting the environment by eliminating plaster waste, but you’re also saving valuable time, that you can give back your patients.

Tips & Tricks: 3D Scanning in Orthopedic Technology

Example from the video: Occipital iPad Scanner Mark II

Each 3D scanner has individual strengths that cover specific applications. As an example, we’d like to introduce you to the Occipital iPad Scanner Mark II. This is an infrared sensor that can be attached to an iPad. It’s easy to use and comes with free software.  >> More information

We’ll take the first step with you!

To use the Mecuris Solution Platform, a scan upload is essential. You haven’t yet worked with 3D scanners and would like more information?
