Spentys technology is a new tool for surgeons, orthopedists, and rehabilitation specialists, which allows using 3D-printing to create personal immobilization devices, guided by individual characteristics and specifics of the patient’s pathology, providing more effective treatment and rehabilitation.
The technology, created in Belgium, is successfully used in the European Union and Israel.
The process of manufacturing an individual orthopedic device consists of three stages:
- 3D scanning;
- 3D modeling;
- 3D printing.
Spentys obtains a digital copy of the limb by three-dimensional scanning, after which the software automatically creates an orthosis shape based on it for further 3D printing.
3D-printed orthoses are more comfortable, take into account the characteristics of the skin, lighter, breathable, and waterproof. Due to this, they are able to improve the quality of life of patients undergoing post-traumatic rehabilitation, treatment, or have orthopedic pathologies.
In accordance with the European quality standard, Spentys uses certified medical materials and modern 3D printing equipment for the production of quality orthopedic products.
