The Most Advanced CAD/CAM Technology
We bring more than a decade of experience utilizing the most innovative CAD/CAM technology, and are always looking ahead to find ways to save you time and resources.
Our highly trained technicians assist our customers using CAD/CAM in a variety of ways. You can simply send us a cast or measurements to be input into our CAD system, or, if you own the front-end equipment, you can email a completed file for production.
CAD/CAM using your cast
One of the easiest ways to use CAD/CAM without the investment is to send a cast of your patient to O&P1 for modification and fabrication. Take the cast of your patient in much of the same manner you normally would, fill out the O&P1 work order and measurement sheet and we’ll do the rest.
CAD/CAM to measurement
Tired of spending hours modifying transfemoral casts only to end up with something that doesn’t fit your patient? If so, then CAD/CAM to measurement is for you.
A set of measurements takes only a few minutes to complete, eliminating the need for a cast. Follow the instructions below and we will be able to create a socket that gets you to a quick starting point.
The socket is only as good as your measurements so please follow the instructions step-by-step.
- Ischium to distal end.
- Perineum to distal end.
- Starting with your zero level at perineum, take circumferences every 2 inches. (Every 1 inch is the limb is very short.)
- Other information needed:
- Left or right side.
- Brim style.
- Other length and circumferential measurements if setting up and/or finishing the prosthesis.
CAD/CAM – your CAD, our CAM
If you have a front-end system using TracerCAD or Shapemaker, we can be your fabrication support.
Create the model your way, include fabrication specifications in your email or fax us a work order and we’ll take it from there. Most new CAD/CAM users prefer this method because it frees them from the financial commitment of a carver (usually $35,000 to $100,000) and eliminates hiring new staff to maintain and run the equipment.
