Prosthetics significantly affect
post-operative health for amputees
Achieving the optimal fit for a prosthetic is a significant problem for patients, soldiers , and particularly with children. A long process of adaptation is necessary in order to confirm that the prosthetic is a match for the patient. As a result, pressure ulcers may develop at the site, causing significant disability and impacting quality of life.

The LimbAssure Solution
LimbAssure is an enhanced 3D scanning of an amputee's limb using multi-mode optical imaging and close-up interaction where the prosthetic will be attached. The detailed physical and skin health model of the limb improves fit, comfort and usability of the prosthetic while minimizing potential ulcer and pressure sore complications. The development of pressure ulcers can be prevented and the process of adaptation improved for many patients.
Approximately it takes around 5 months for a user to get a new device, by using LimbAssure that time is cut significantly.
