SCANNING AND 3D MODEL MODIFICATION (CAD)
The patient's body part is scanned with a 3D scanner to get the starting 3D model. The orthotist applies the most appropriate corrections to the 3D model using a CAD software and he exports the file in a standard format (STL, AOP, VRML, etc).
ROBOT PROGRAMMING (CAM)
The software ARPP® generates a program with the simulation of the CAM tool path, needed to remove the material from the rough block.
CARVING THE MODEL
The program is sent to ORTIS. The robot will start carving the block of material to obtain a custom model of the patients' body part.
A qualified technician applies a thermoplastic cover on the carved model.
ORTIS cuts the plastic cover with a thin tool to obtain the final orthosis.
ORTIS carves differet kind of 3D models for tailored orthoses and prostheses. With the process described, you can have 60% of time savings compared to the manual traditional method.
According to the model of ORTIS, you are able to produce AFOs, KAFOs, CORSETS, HELMETS, SOCKETS, MATTRESSES, SEATING SYSTEMS, SHOE LASTS and more!
