The key challenge of the project is to make assistive devices like orthosis and prosthesis individual, accessible globally and cost effective to the patients with inborn or acquired disability. Through the WiDE web platform anybody can benefit from our unique software tool by uploading a 3D scan and allowing our automated process to customize it for you.
The software tool, developed by project, works by combining a digital prosthetic design with a 3D scan. Once digital prosthetic design is scaled and wrapped around the scan, the software automatically prepares the 3D design for 3D printing. The final product is designed in a way that smart devices and sensors can be installed into the medical device itself.
