How 3D Scanners Capture Intricate Details for Socket Fabrication

Remember the days of bulky plaster casts that immobilized limbs for weeks? Thankfully, those days are fading into the past. Today, 3D scanning technology is revolutionizing the field of assistive technologies, offering a faster, more comfortable, and precise way to capture intricate details for prosthetics, orthotics, and other custom-made devices.

In this blog post, we'll explore the magic of 3D scanning and how it's transforming the way we create assistive technologies

Imagine this!

You walk into a doctor's office with a broken wrist.

Instead of the cumbersome cast, a 3D scanner takes center stage. This futuristic device painlessly sweeps across your arm, capturing millions of data points in a matter of seconds.

Within minutes, a detailed digital model of your wrist is generated, showcasing every bump, curve, and crevice.

This isn't science fiction

It's the reality of 3D scanning technology

But how does it work?

3D scanners utilize various technologies, like structured light or laser scanning, to project a pattern of light onto the object (in this case, your arm).

The scanner then measures the way the light deforms as it bounces back, creating a precise point cloud representation of the object's surface.

This data is then processed by software to generate a high-resolution 3D model.
