Applications

Prosthetics and orthotics

Reinvent cancer post-treatment or recovery from limb loss by digitizing body parts with remarkable precision for ergonomic prosthetics and orthotics (such as AFO and TLS).

Surgery

Use a 3D model to study a tumor before removal, or 3D print a malformed/missing body part with unmistakable measurement of shape, volume, and symmetry.

Plastic surgery

Allay your patients’ worries about possible outcomes by providing accurate 3D models for surgical planning and post-operative evaluation in aesthetic and craniofacial surgery.

Maxillofacial surgery

Whether you work on dental or cranial implants, intraoperative navigation, or orthodontic treatment, Artec solutions will help you meet and exceed global standards in reconstructive therapy.

Oncology and radiology

Accelerate cancer diagnosis, study tumors, estimate areas for radiotherapy, and create form-fitting implants.

Pathology and forensic medicine

Get precise, textured data crucial for forensic investigation: identify changes to the body, shed light on trauma and stages of decomposition, and document injuries.

Anthropometry and obesity treatment

Identify the slightest anthropometric changes, and use these accurate body measurements to create customized bariatric and sports treatment with zero contact.

Burns and scars healing

Treat sores and burns — from pressure therapy to reduce vascularity and possible hypertrophy to tracking wound healing.

Diagnostics

Capture crucial data about your patient’s condition so you can make a diagnosis at a much earlier stage, which could be a literal life-saver.

Preclinical testing

Digitize a residual limb or post-op scars to get accurate measurements for a customized prosthesis, or run surgery simulations with 3D models and uncover new possibilities.

Medical training

Use Artec scanners to create immersive 3D visualizations for use in medical research and practical workshops, providing students with innovative ways to explore human anatomy.

3D dental scanner Artec Space Spider helps give dental implant patients their perfect smiles

3D dental scanner Artec Space Spider helps give dental implant patients their perfect smiles
“We do the scan right there in the office with the patient in the chair. And patients don’t mind waiting to see their new smile and interacting with such technology, since taking 2D photos was hard for us because our patients had lost their confidence in smiling, because many of them had broken or missing teeth. But by showing them a 3D face instead, the kind we generate with the help of Space Spider, this solves our problems in these complex cases. When they see the results, they are very often quite impressed and positive and trust us.”

In one click, Artec Micro delivers high-quality scans of the tiniest objects – right from your desk in your clinic, lab, or treatment room.

Scanning tiny objects for dentistry or maxillofacial surgery

Precise 3D capture in just one click

Compact and quick, Micro is ready to scan as soon as you place your object on the scanning platform and hit the button. You don’t even need much training – the scanner will do the job in automatic mode, and calculate the optimal trajectory for your object to be captured precisely in the shortest time possible.

10-micron accuracy for vital details

In any medical procedure, there’s no such thing as unnecessary detail. Teeth or tiny bones, scratches, gashes, burns or any other small forms of injury, melanomas, small implants – you name it – Micro creates their perfect CAD/CAM-ready digital replicas for lab use or 3D printing.

Artec Eva

For scanning medium-sized body parts, such as bust, legs, or hands

Artec Eva is the original version of Artec Leo, a versatile 3D scanner without a built-in processor and touchscreen. It is the first market-leader device for body scanning average-size body parts such as legs or hands, an entire human form or skeleton, and even hair.

For scanning medium-sized body parts, such as bust, legs, or hands

Time-tested solution

Artec Eva is an industry-acclaimed device, effortlessly addressing common scanning challenges. Successfully and repeatedly used in diagnostics, treatment, or equipment production.

Easy to maneuver

Lightweight and compact, Eva brings remarkable freedom for medical procedures. Move the scanner around easily to capture your patient’s anatomy and create custom-fit prostheses and orthoses, or monitor a patient’s entire form.

Artec Eva Lite

Professional budget scanner for healthcare

A more affordable version of Artec Eva is its younger sister Eva Lite, a great geometry-only solution for body scanning. While Eva Lite doesn’t capture color or feature color-based algorithms for scanning or processing, it’s an excellent budget option for digitizing the human form and body parts with high-quality professional results.

Professional budget scanner for healthcare

Excellent geometry capture

Eva Lite is fully capable of rendering geometry-rich objects, thus can be used in a wide range of medical scenarios and for all sorts of measurements analyzing body shape, weight, or posture.

Less power required

Since Eva Lite doesn’t collect texture, it can be connected to a less sophisticated computer, making it a go-to solution for healthcare institutions with a limited budget.
