A few years ago, Kersten Revalidatietechniek, a Dutch manufacturer of customized products for the disabled decided to expand its business. Kersten was already making high-quality products which allowed persons with limited physical abilities to enjoy life to the fullest. For example, the company was famous for customizing automobiles to give the disabled the autonomy a car can provide.
To expand its product line, the company wanted to begin manufacturing custom mattresses for the disabled: both for the wheelchair and the bed. After doing preliminary research on available technology and designing a manufacturing process, the company chose to purchase an Artec L scanner and started work
This is their process:
During our visit to the facility, Leon Schroen, Kersten’s workshop manager told Artec that the company is very happy with its Artec L scanner and the only request they have for improvement is to add a Start/Stop button on the scanner. This will make it easier to use. We, at Artec, always appreciate user feedback and will work toward making all of our scanners ergonomically perfect.
