Hanger Orthopedic Group Inc., Bethesda, Maryland, has teamed
with Polhemus, a leading producer of three-dimensional motion
tracking systems, to develop a laser scanning system for prosthetic
and orthotic applications. “A faster, cleaner, and less invasive
alternative to traditional casting methods, the new system could
revolutionize the process of fitting a patient for a prosthetic or
orthotic device,” Hanger stated.
