Being orthopaedic technician, you have the know-how and experience to bring patients in the most comfortable position. This is one of the most important steps because the optimal fit enables the patient to realize his motor skills in every possible way. It s the first step for making the best orthotic seats to measure. The next step is obvious, but do you know how easy it has become to make a scan?
Once the sitting or lying position has been detected by a vacuum imprint, it is mapped and stored by a 3D scanner app. A convenient method that each orthopaedic technician can apply. You can do the preparatory work for milling an orthotic seat or reclining seat on your own. Elaborate technology with high investment costs in the five-figure area belonging to the past.
In the process of milling seats, SAVI is your reliable partner. After having sent us your file created by using the scanner, we produce, matching to your vacuum imprint, exact correspondences made of foam by using CNC technology. We approach this without lavish rework – fast, precise and of course within the agreed delivery time.
From vacuum imprint to milling block (example)
The easiest method is to scan the vacuum imprint with a 3D scanner app. If you do not have a 3D scanner app, you can also fill the vacuum imprint with assembly foam like you can see here. The foamed imprint (e. g. vacuum imprint) of the client can be scanned by us. Afterwards we mill a foam block by the millimeter based to the scan file.
Advantage of the 3D scan method:
- easy handling (data transmission by e-mail)
- no storage costs for models
- environmentally friendly because of no wasted material
