The manufacturer of individual 3D-printed orthoses Zdravprint (part of the TechnoSpark group of companies) in September 2020 manufactured an orthosis for the American legionnaire of the Nizhny Novgorod basketball club Luke Petrasek to replace the plaster.
Player of the basketball club Nizhny Novgorod Luke Petrasek received a fracture of the radius of the right hand in early September. To improve the quality of life of an athlete during the recovery period after surgery, the doctor of BC Nizhny Novgorod turned to Zdravprint for the manufacture of an orthosis, which should replace the player with a plaster cast. Within 24 hours, Zdravprint agreed with the doctor a sketch of the orthosis, built a 3D model of the product based on the computed tomography data of the hand, printed the orthosis and delivered it to Nizhny Novgorod. Plastic arm retainer, 3D-printed exactly to the size of a basketball player. The brace allows to achieve reliable immobilization at the desired angle of 110º, while leaving access to the elbow joint for physiotherapy.
In September, using the same technology, Zdravprint produced an individual protective mask for another player of BC Nizhny Novgorod, Alex Gavrilovich. The product was manufactured according to a 3D model formed according to the computer tomography of the athlete's face. The 3D facial scanning procedure was not carried out, which allowed the customer to receive the mask in a short time.
Director of Zdravprint Alexander Kosarev: “Regardless of who our client is, we try to save him from complicated and expensive procedures when ordering an individual fixator. Zdravprint makes orthoses based on a photograph of an injured part of the body, but in some cases a 3D scan or computed tomography is required. We began to use the technology of building a model of an orthosis by CT in September. The case with Luke Petrasek is indicative: the American brace was put on just a day after the order. ”
