Comb O&P LLC, an orthotic and prosthetic shape capture company, announces that its Comb 3D Scanner App is now available at the iPhone App Store.

The app is designed to leverage the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera, powered by KNOCKOUT 3D, to capture 3D scans of body parts without the need for additional attachments or hardware.

Comb O&P launched the Comb 3D Scanner App to fill an unmet need for the market of molding/capturing parts of the body for fitting custom made bracing and orthopedic appliances, it notes in a media release.

O&P practitioners can quickly review and upload saved 3D scans of the legs, feet, knees, arms, and the torso as .obj or .stl to the HIPAA-compliant Comb portal. To prepare for rectification and fabrication, scans can be downloaded and imported into popular CAD/CAM software.

“Instead of sharing a large and expensive scanner, I can quickly and easily scan my patients using my iPhone with no additional hardware,” says Vince Baroni, CPO, President of Comb O&P, in the release.

“The speed at which I can now fit braces, limbs, and foot/ankle devices has expedited my digital workflow and allows me to spend more time providing top-notch patient care,” he adds.
