Orthotics and Prosthetics One has over 10 years of experience with CAD/CAM. Our highly trained technicians assist our customers using CAD in a variety of ways. Many simply send us a cast or measurements to be input into our CAD system, while others own the front-end equipment and email a completed file for production. Either way the advantages are the same; CAD helps practitioners better utilize their time and resources.
One of the easiest ways to use CAD/CAM without the investment is to send a cast of your patient to O&P1 for modification and fabrication. Take the cast of your patient in much of the same manner you normally would, fill out the O&P1 work order and measurement sheet and we'll do the rest. Please refer to our FAQ section for standard turnaround times.
Tired of spending hours modifying trans-femoral casts only to end up with something that doesn't fit your patient? If so, then CAD/CAM to measurement is for you. A set of measurements takes only a few minutes to complete, eliminating the need for a cast. Follow the instructions below and we will be able to create a socket that gets you to a quick starting point. The socket is only as good as your measurements so please follow the instructions step by step.
If you have a front-end system using TracerCAD or Shapemaker we can be your fabrication support. Create the model your way, include fabrication specifications in your email or fax us a work order and we'll take it from there. Most new CAD/CAM users prefer this method because it frees them from the financial commitment of a carver (usually $35,000 to $100,000) and eliminates hiring new staff to maintain and run the equipment.
