3D Printing for

Orthopaedics & Prosthetics

Improving lives with 3D technology

iMakr is here to help integrate 3D printing and scanning into your practice for volume manufacturing and patient-specific applications.

We offer 3D solutions right at your fingertips for truly customised orthopaedic supports, surgical models, and prosthetics.


3D Printing Solutions for Orthopaedics and Prosthetics

iMakr offers a premium range of 3D printers that are best suited for orthopaedic prosthetic solutions. Big and small, rapid operation, and multi-material compatible, 3D printing is a versatile and valuable advantage for practices.  Doctors and specialists have complete access to custom appartuses, like corsets, wrist braces, or artificial limbs, that are tailored to every individual patient's concerns with geometric freedom from 3D printing technology.

3D Scanning Solutions for Orthopaedics and Prosthetics

iMakr's 3D scanning expertise is available to help add functional scanning solutions to your practice.  3D scanning is available to improve processes by increasing speeds and reducing complications throughout procedures. Doctors and specialist now  have the ability to produce models at correct sizes, perfectly tailor body braces and splints to patients, and diagnose spinal disorders. 3D scanning is much safer that x-rays an therefore can be performed much more.

3D Materials for Orthopaedics and Prosthetics

Fortis

Fortis is a lightweight relatively elastic material with high wear and laceration threshold. On a polyolefin matrix, this filament also has elastic memory and enervation resistance. Fortis is ideal for:

  • Busts
  • Corrective Corsets
  • Upperleg Tutors

Pure

Pure FT is a highly flexible polymer composition with a antimicrobal material, tested and found to have a remarkable 99.9% efficiency. Pure is idel for:

  • Production of Orthopaedic insoles

Verum

Verum orthopaedic material is a highly rigid filament based on a polyster matrix. It has high tenacity properties and printed pieces can be sterilised. Verum is ideal for:

  • New Corsets Line
  • Lower Leg Guards
  • Lower Leg Tuors

Elasto

Elasto is a elasticometric and flexible material that is resistant to aggreissive skin fats and has high abrasion resistance. Its excellent elasticity makes it ideal for:

  • Sealed Gaskets
  • Elastic Joint Elements

Osso

Designed to simulate the texture and appearance of real bone, Osso is aspecially developed PLA that is easy to print and is capable of capturing amazing detail. Osso is ideal for:

  • Production of artificial bones
  • Creation of surgical models

Structura

This Polyamide carbon fiber composite was developed to have strong mechanical properties while still being light-weight and comfirtable in nature. Structura is ideal for:

  • Limb Prosthetics
  • Mobility Supports
  • Exoskeleton Elements


Success Stories

These custom facial orthoses are created through facial 3D scanning for people who are unable to close their eyes on their own. The "masks" will help change this and relieve patients from extreme discomfort and restless sleep schedules. With help from the Artec Eva, the surface detail kept its integrity and making the object fit perfectly on the face once rendered in 3D.  

A perfect-fit prosthetic leg was printed for this paralympic surfer, who recently put it to the test by completing a triathlon. The entire print took around 18 hours and is made with high-strength material. The prosthesis has proved its extreme durability and comfort during a number of other demanding athletic events the athelete has participated in.

Cranial substitutes are often used during procedures concerned with head trauma. When the brain swells, doctors are often forced to remove skull cup and now are able to use 3D printed substitutes once the brain has returned to natural state. These constructed cups can be produced to a perfect shape for the patient while also giving the reproduction i three layers mimicking cortical bone and spongy tissue.
