PrintLab's 3D Scan of the Week: Human Hand and Foot Models

We are excited about the future of 3D scanning in prosthetics and we believe that when combined with 3D printing, there will be a revolution in the medical industry.

For today’s scan our creative partner Puzzlebox3D in the Philippines has shared 2 amazing scans of a human hand and foot. Using the highly affordable EinScan-S 3D scanner, they were able to obtain amazing resolution scans that could even be used to create tailor-made prosthetics.

The regular method of creating artificial limbs without 3D scanning involves manual measurement of the anatomy before a plaster cast is made. After the cast is produced, it must then be sent over to a manufacturer and there are various cases where manual measurement has resulted in prosthetics that are not suited for the patient due to inaccuracies. It is very important that a prosthetic limb is comfortable for the patient and 3D scanning can ensure this for every patient.

With 3D scanning, the whole process is much quicker, but more importantly, much more accurate. Within just a few minutes a 3D scan can be created that can be sent to a manufacturer digitally, reducing time and transport risks. If you look at the 3D scans below of the hand and foot, this adds a new dimension into prosthetics because it allows manufacturers to use the data to mirror and recreate parts of the body.

We are excited about the future of 3D scanning in prosthetics and we believe that when combined with 3D printing, there will be a revolution in the medical industry.

Here are the amazing scans created by Puzzlebox3D:
