Introduction: Let’s check out how Scantech iReal 3D body scanner plays a crucial role in meeting the customization requirements of orthopedic braces in the medical field.
Compared with traditional treatment methods, 3D body scanning has emerged as a new and effective technology for addressing spine diseases. As time progresses, we encounter increasingly unusual and complex medical conditions, such as deformities in the body shape of young individuals. Thankfully, many of these spine-related issues can be improved using professional medical interventions and complementary tools.
One of the medical technology companies recently had accepted a 15-year-old girl with scoliosis symptoms. Her scoliosis has been S-shaped, with uneven shoulders and backs, deformed thoracic cage, a tilted pelvis, and persistent waist pain. If scoliosis is not treated early, it will affect gas exchange. In severe cases, nerve damage, limb sensory disturbance, and lower limb numbness may occur.
3D Body Measurement
The common way to cure scoliosis in clinical practice is the Cobb angle measurement method, using a ruler and an angle measuring instrument to perform 1:1 on X-rays.
With the advancement of science and technology, the demand for accurate 3D body composition and body shape customization is steadily increasing, and 3D model and size acquisition technology of the human body are gradually becoming familiar. For health care, 3D body scanner can replace traditional diagnosis and treatment methods. It has the repressive advantages of fast speed, high precision, and non-contact.
ScanTech 3D Measurement Solution
3D body scanner can accurately acquire and analyze the degree of spinal curvature, intuitively providing doctors with spinal deformation data, which creates a significant basis for diagnosis and treatment and auxiliary brace design. ScanTech’s iReal 2E 3D scanner adopts infrared VCSEL structured light technology to eliminate the issues of dazzling lights, creating a safe and comfortable 3D experience. iReal 2E 3D color scanner has a fast 3D body scanning rate of 1,500,000 measurements/s, and it can automatically collect a large amount of 3D data for the human body. Combined with 3D printing technology, it is convenient for hospitals to design and produce wearable orthopedic brace.
