Save time and money
Regardless if you’re working with orthopedics, prosthetics or personalized midsoles, going from a traditional to a digital workflow saves both time and money. It’s also a lot easier to make adjustments.

It all begins with 3D scanning
The flow starts with 3D scanning, where you capture and create a 3D image based on a patient’s body part. With 3D scanners from peel 3D, there are no unnecessary features, just pure and simple high-quality scans without any preparations.

Why choose 3D Scanning for body parts?

Precision and Accuracy:
3D scanning allows for the capture of precise measurements and detailed 3D models of body parts.
This level of accuracy ensures a perfect fit for orthopedics, prosthetics, and personalized midsoles, leading to improved comfort and performance.

Flexibility and Iteration:
Making adjustments becomes effortless with 3D scanning. The digital model allows for easy modifications and iterations, ensuring the perfect fit and functionality. Whether it’s refining orthopedic devices, optimizing prosthetics, or fine-tuning personalized midsoles, the flexibility of 3D scanning streamlines the design process.
