Touchless measurement methods can be sufficiently used in medicine. Structured light is currently the safest and the most complex method for wound or skin deviation analysis. Thanks to the possibility of capturing the real color of scanned surface the doctors and researchers gather information of all important areas that can might keep the normal geometry.
3D scanning releases the patient from staying in clinic for to long. Within just few seconds we are able to capture all information about surfaces and colors that can be analyzed further. Patient need to present only during 3D scanning process which is not only rapid but also completely painless.
The lack of X ray and other harmful radiation allows the doctor to work with a 3D scanner without a need of leaving the patient, moreover it’s save for pregnant woman or deeply wounded patients.
The method is is simple – The straight fringes are projected by LED projections systems on the surface that must be measured.
The curvature of the fringes is being captured by the detection camera that sends the digital images to the software. SMARTTECH3Dmeasure software transform the images to the point cloud that presents the geometry and color of measured surface. That’s the way we get the information that can be analyzed in the necessary way – if it’s for plastic surgeries, healing processes monitoring, posture defects analysis etc.
Thanks to ease of usage, SMARTTECH3D scanners can be easily used by the people who are not familiar with metrology. The scanners does not need the difficult calibration process. They are ready to use directly after taking them out from the case. Furthermore – the operating SMARTTECH3Dmeasure software is intuitive and allows to provide 3D scanning as well as automate data analysis.
SMARTTECH 3D scanners are already used in Japanese research institutes such as AIST or UNITIKA where they are used to provide complex measurements on whole human body or it’s parts. They took part in the European research projects of measurement the sportsman legs.
They were also used to scan Robert Lewandowski to beat the World Guinness Record for the biggest 3D printed statue.
