Print custom 3D foot orthotics with an iPad.
The client was looking to develop a mobile tool to automate the production of custom-made foot orthotics.
The client was developing the Arize project to deploy 3D printed foot orthoses using their technologies and their network of American clinicians.
HP was looking to develop an automated end-to-end solution with modern native mobile tools.
To print a plantar orthosis with a 3D printer, it takes several resources, including precise measurements of the customer’s foot, as well as the specific foot problems to be solved by the orthosis.
Capturing its measurements and adjustments is typically very manual or done with high-end 3D scanners.
We have developed an iPad application that connects to Occipital's 3D Structure Sensor scanners.
To optimize the tools in the hands of clinicians, we have developed a native iOS mobile application that interfaces with the 3D Structure Sensor scanner from Occipital and with the TrueDepth Sensor from Apple in order to make precise 3D scans of the feet.
Clinicians can also manage their order books via the app, as well as document their clients and each orthosis.
