Modernizing the Measurement Process – Prosthetics
The Manu3 is a laboratory measuring device used to capture the basic information required to determine a variety of anatomical dimensions and other conditions such as skin texture, colours of the hand (palmar and dorsal), fingers and nails.
The Manu3 scanner may be used to determine the anatomical dimensions of the hand (lengths and circumferences), to select and fabricate custom prosthetic gloves for amputees.
In the selection/fabrication of high definition silicone prosthetic gloves for the hand the first obstacle is the capture of the anatomical dimensions of the hand. Typically clinicians may not have the required time needed to take accurate anatomical measurements and dimensions of the hand. These measurements, taken by hand with a measuring tape, are not accurate and of low repeatability.
