Mission
Create a 3D modeling application that could be used directly by the orthopedics specialist to modify the corset form in the design phase; the application would also allow reducing manufacturing time and improving the corset quality.

Solution
Development of OrthoStrato Concept ®, an innovative Windows application that uses surface reconstruction from digitized points to build a CAD model; this model can be corrected by the orthopedic specialist and provides surface data for downstream machining.

Benefits
Reduction of costs and product cycle time by 50% to 70% as compared to traditional design and manufacturing methods.
- Average corset delivery time in 48 hours instead of two to three months.
- Elimination of hand detailing on a heavy plaster model (up to 120 kg).
- A more reactive treatment for children and adolescents, who can grow up to 10 centimeters in one month.

(*) This application was developed using the Surfaces from Scattered Points (SSP) algorithm - an advanced software component available from OPEN CASCADE.



The choice of the advanced surface module of Open CASCADE Technology helped us to gain a strategic advance over our competitors. With the release of the components in Open Source as Open CASCADE Technology, we can be sure of the longevity of this exceptional development platform and of its future evolution.
