Customized 3D Printed Prosthetics

3D Print reports on SHINING 3D, which is a Chinese 3D printer company “pioneering independent research and the development of 3D digitizing and 3D printing technologies.”

Currently, SHINING 3D is hard at work developing customized prosthetics with their 3D printers and EinScan 3D scanners. These are “ideal tools for industries, which often struggle with traditional CAD design methods.”

This is because, “while the functionality of a prosthetic limb is its most important feature, the fit and form of the prosthetic can be just as important for the user. The comfort a well-fitting prosthetic provides can make a world of difference as does the confidence provided by a prosthetic limb that suits its user’s appearance.”

3D scanners allow for infinite realms of customizability. “The EinScan Pro line of handheld 3D scanners, and the SHINING 3D industrial 3D printers, make 3D scanning and 3D printing for medical applications more accessible than it has ever been.”

The scanners are able “to scan larger objects with ease and make scanning human body or human body parts a simple task.”  Indeed, “SHINING 3D’s flagship scanner, the EinScan Pro 2X Plus, can scan a human leg in a matter of seconds and the captured scan data can be processed, customized, and 3D printed faster than has ever been possible.”
