UNYQ Inc, a provider of 3D-printed prosthetic covers, has entered into a distribution partnership with Southern Prosthetic Supply Inc (SPS), a distributor of orthotic and prosthetic products in the United States, it announces.
SPS and UNYQ will collaborate to offer and service UNYQ’s collection of products, UNYQ Wears, to clinics in the SPS network. SPS supplies products to clinics across the country.
UNYQ Wears are 3D-printed, personalized covers for above and below-knee prosthetic limbs.The customizable covers are available in a wide variety of colors and styles, and as the products are custom, no inventory management is needed, reducing waste and cost.
UNYQ’s proprietary technology captures user design preferences and biometrics using a simple smartphone application, a process that involves 3D imaging, 3D printing, and design finishing. Custom UNYQ Wears are shipped within 2 to 3 weeks to clinics in 30 different countries, a media release from the San Francisco-based company explains.
“We are always looking for innovative ways to enhance our supply chain. 3D printing and design can solve needs for people with limb loss and limb difference and their clinicians, offering digitization of processes, greater sustainability and enhanced user self-image. We are very excited to be partnering with UNYQ to move our industry forward.”
— Regina Weger President, SPS
“The agreement with SPS is an exciting next step in an evolution bringing choice and self-expression to users of UNYQ Wears all over America. It’s taking 4th generation manufacturing tech and supply chain to a scalable level to make it more available and affordable.”
— Eythor Bender, CEO and Co-Founder of UNYQ
