The app is designed to leverage the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera, powered by KNOCKOUT 3D, to capture 3D scans of body parts without the need for additional attachments or hardware.
Comb O&P launched the Comb 3D Scanner App to fill an unmet need for the market of molding/capturing parts of the body for fitting custom made bracing and orthopedic appliances, it notes in a media release.
O&P practitioners can quickly review and upload saved 3D scans of the legs, feet, knees, arms, and the torso as .obj or .stl to the HIPAA-compliant Comb portal. To prepare for rectification and fabrication, scans can be downloaded and imported into popular CAD/CAM software.
“Instead of sharing a large and expensive scanner, I can quickly and easily scan my patients using my iPhone with no additional hardware,” says Vince Baroni, CPO, President of Comb O&P, in the release.
“The speed at which I can now fit braces, limbs, and foot/ankle devices has expedited my digital workflow and allows me to spend more time providing top-notch patient care,” he adds.
