AUTOMATED TECHNOLOGY IMPROVES EFFICIENCY

Making a prosthesis or a brace is a mixture of crafts and science.

Have you noticed that a robot can help you make your gadget? Our professionals make the gadgets with skill and experience. Each understanding is a novel test that a specialist must address. As heads of their specialty, experts use an assortment of techniques and devices to give the best response to each of the patients they treat. At WCBL, we use both the strongest conventional strategies and the latest innovations. To initiate the interaction, a doctor approves a prosthesis or orthosis. Next, the patient visits a prosthetic or orthotic professional. The professional then works with the patient to decide which device is best for her needs.

Some parts of the appliance are manufactured by hand, but many others are manufactured by an outside company and sent to our office for collection. Accuracy and care are generally significant in the assembly interaction. In the O&P world, manual projection has always been the highest quality level. However, new innovation has started to change that.

Typically, an orthotist or prosthetist takes a pestle projection of the appendix to make a contraption. The mortar then fills the mold to make a final imitation of the treatment region. Then an expert uses the mortar shape to assemble the contraption for an ideal fit. This can be an extensive cycle. The patient returns regularly for various adaptations and device changes. However, at WCBL, we also use state-of-the-art innovation to dramatically reduce the manufacturing time of each appliance.

A CAD CAM scanner allows our group to deliver a greater volume of devices, at a higher rate of productivity. An expert uses a hand-held laser scanner, uniquely created for the fabrication of orthotics and prosthetics, to obtain a computerized estimate. The specialists then introduce advanced patient scans into the machine. The CAD CAM then uses a 7-pivot Ortis cutting frame to trim the foam pieces into final scan imitations. This interaction normally lasts 30 minutes. The specialists then build the appliance directly from the shape of the foam.

Unlike many offices, we at WCBL have a world-class manufacturing laboratory. Our laboratory professionals manufacture our apparatus on-site, allowing for fast turn-around time and the best quality. WCBL specialists are deeply gifted and talented with many years of involvement with each other.

Our automated 7 cube shaper provides fast and accurate creation of our gadgets. Generally cuts prosthetic and orthotic molds in 5-20 minutes with 0.1mm precision for a smooth finish on the most amazing shapes. In this way, we can offer our patients the most precise adjustment and the most ideal turning time.

The CAD CAM scanner and shaper are extraordinary pieces of equipment that not many offices come close to. In this regard, we are very pleased to have the option of offering this state of the art innovation to our patients.
