Artec unites a hospital in Wales 31 October 2011 Artec unites a hospital in Wales The Rehabilitation Unit and the Maxillofacial Laboratory at the Morrison Hospital in Wales have joined forces and now both use the Artec MH scanner to solve two very different problems. The Rehabilitation Unit initially purchased the scanner to design customized wheelchair cushions. A bean-bag imprint of a patients’ body was scanned and a more comfortable wheelchair cushion was made.

Applications

Plastic surgery

Raise your consult-to-surgery conversions by using a hand-held Artec 3D Scanner, optimize your consultation time and increase patient referrals!

By using a hand-held Artec 3D scanner you can get a precise, colored 3D model of the client’s breast, face or any other part of the body in a fraction of a minute. Artec Studio software allows you to take any volumetric or linear measurements from the scanned model and visualize pre- and post surgery appearance with all nuances of shape and skin.

No need to send your client for expensive MRI or X-ray imagining. No need to rent additional office space to accommodate large and expensive equipment. No need to spend consultation time looking at photos of previous patients, patient’s friends, or taking multiple photos of your client while becoming an expert in photo editing. Gain time instead and focus on the patient.

Show your patient comparative 3D images of his/her body before and after surgery. Providing patients with a 3D simulation during consultation allows you to increase their confidence in the upcoming surgery and benefit from a significant competitive edge.

Most commonly used models: Artec MH, Artec MHT

Orthopaedics and prosthetics

Our 3D scanners are successfully used by orthopeds and prosthetists in order to generate accurate scans of body parts. This means they can produce highly accurate and perfectly fitted prostheses with minimum effort. The result is a significant decrease in cost and time spent on each job.

The technology of 3D scanning lies at the heart of a system of diagnostics that carries no health risk and means that spinal disorders such as scoliosis, cyphosis, lordosis and rotational spondylolisthesis can be detected in their early stages. Scanning a patient’s back is a harmless and quick procedure, which can be carried out as often as required. As a result, using a 3D scanner to measure spinal curvature often helps in diagnosing the evolution of a disorder.

Most commonly used model in O&P: Artec MH

Wheelchairs

Using a scanner to produce 3D images of a patient’s back makes it easier to construct a wheelchair that perfectly fits the needs of the individual. As the scanners are portable, images can be taken wherever the client chooses. The speed and simplicity of the procedure guarantee excellent results.

Most commonly used model for this application: Artec L

Wheelchairs

Post-trauma care

Treatment after serious injury can be as painful as the injury itself. The Artec 3D Scanner can help alleviate that pain for burn victims, by providing a perfect 3D scan of the patient’s face, for example. This will enable the medical professional to create a custom-fit mask to expedite the healing process without messy plaster moulds or the necessity to touch the sensitive, affected area of the body.

Post-trauma care

Dietology

Comparing 3D body images made before and during health procedures, dieticians can show their patients the changes in their physiques. People who receive visual confirmation of the effectiveness of diet and exercise are thus given an added incentive to continue the regiment in order to achieve their ideal weight.
