Acronym RAFT (Reference Number: 114101)
Duration 01/10/2020 - 01/08/2022
Project Topic Improve non-operative treatment of fractures by developing a system of automated digital design and immediate manufacturing of thermoplastic anatomical braces in hospitals, avoiding an operation to many patients. The scanned patient’s morphology enables the design and manufacture of a medically superior brace, within one hour. The medical team retains control over the design. The clean and easy-to-use production unit is installed in the emergency department and operated by the medical staff.
