Comb O&P, Cleveland, OH, an orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) shape capture company, has announced that its Comb 3D Scanner App is now available on the iPhone App Store. The state-of-the-art app leverages the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera, powered by KNOCKOUT 3D™, to capture 3D scans of body parts—no additional attachments or hardware is needed.
According to Comb O&P, the app was launched to fill an unmet need for the market of molding/capturing parts of the body for fitting custom-made bracing and orthopedic appliances. The app offers practitioners an accurate, low-cost, and portable tool to capture 3D scans of legs, feet, knees, arms, and the torso. Practitioners can quickly review and upload saved scans as .obj or .stl to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act–compliant Comb portal. To prepare for rectification and fabrication, scans can be downloaded and imported into popular CAD/CAM software.
