SEcure and FAst 3D Printing of limb Orthoses for ClinicAl production
Danish 3D printing technologies company Create it REAL and Spentys, a Belgium company enabling mass tailor-made orthopedic devices join forces to accelerate 3D printing adoption at Certified Prosthetists and Orthotists (CPO’s) through a new partnership.
Spentys’ workflow, allows orthotists to streamline the development of 3d printed immobilization devices. The company uses advanced artificial intelligence, cloud software, and 3d technology to advance the state of the art in immobilization devices. Spentys empowers medical experts globally to vastly improve the quality of care of their patients.
Create it REAL on the other hand has been developing customisable electronics and slicer software for the 3D printing industry. The team also recently launched a new encryption module and algorithms preventing industrial reverse-engineering as well as preventing 3D file piracy and guaranteeing file integrity.
“Today, we focus on in-house development of the immobilization devices in our own R&D facility, but we’re now dead set on bringing on-demand 3D printing service lines to more orthotists through this partnership with Create it REAL. This will open up exciting pathways and enable orthotists to tap into previously unavailable technology and possibilities.”
The goal of this partnership is to develop and validate a 3D printing manufacturing pilot line of limb orthoses which in the end is meant to be installed at the practice of the CPO’s. “And that’s precisely why Spentys wants to work closely with CPO’s and offer a local 3D printing solution that will fit seamlessly into the orthotists current patient flow & workflow” Louis-Philippe Broze, co-founder & CEO of Spentys added.
Since 2017, Spentys has produced more than a thousand 3D-printed immobilization devices in Belgium and is rapidly expanding its service to other countries in Europe, starting with the Netherlands, Switzerland, France and the UK. The partnership with Create it REAL will allow development of a high-speed 3D printer that can be installed directly on the orthotists premises for faster delivery and cost saving. Through advanced software technology, smart algorithms and Spentys’ user-friendly interface, orthotists will be able to scan, adjust and print from a simple user interface, all in their practice itself. The partnership will include implementation of Create it REAL’s electronic platform and REAL vision slicer software to increase the 3D printing process speed and security.
Jeremie Gay, Create it REAL’s CEO added: “We believe our platform can help companies like Spentys to build a customized solution to meet their customer’s needs. Most orthotists are not 3D printing experts and should not lose their time on the technical aspect. The technology complexity is hidden, and all parameters are defined automatically to get the best print. The reliability and speed are also essential to make sure the orthotist can offer an efficient 24/7 service.”
