Perfect Fit: Using 3D technologies to manufacture custom prosthetic arm sockets


Emelie Strömshed, a masters student in product development at the School of Engineering at Lund University in Sweden, has developed a step-by-step process to combine prosthetic arm socket CAD data with 3D scan data of a patients residual limbs to create perfectly fitting 3D printed prosthetics arm sockets.

Under the supervision of Christian Veraeus, prosthetist and at Aktiv Ortopedteknik, and Prof. Olaf Diegel, professor of product development at Lund University, Emelie undertook a comprehensive study of the possibilities of using 3D technologies, including 3D CAD, 3D scanning, and 3D printing, to produce prosthetic sockets that better fit the clients, and were more efficient to produce.
