Manometric developed a highly accurate hand scanner in collaboration with Reinier Haga Orthopeadic Centre, that orthopaedic instrument makers can use to print personalised 3D hand braces. The brace is custom-made for the individual patient, providing them with a product that fits better and weighs less. Patients with rheumatism and arthrosis experience less pain and regain the use of their thumb thanks to the printed aid. The brace allows patients to perform all kinds of everyday activities: they can work and practice their hobbies while being limited in these activities without the brace. The brace can also help avoid surgery which reduces healthcare costs.
