Custom seating

Positioning

Being orthopaedic technician, you have the know-how and experience to bring patients in the most comfortable position. This is one of the most important steps because the optimal fit enables the patient to realize his motor skills in every possible way. It s the first step for making the best orthotic seats to measure. The next step is obvious, but do you know how easy it has become to make a scan?


Scanning

Once the sitting or lying position has been detected by a vacuum imprint, it is mapped and stored by a 3D scanner. A convenient method that now each orthopaedic technician can apply himself. Sounds hard to imagine? With SAVI's system it is possible. Anyone can afford the required scanner. Now you can do the preparatory work for milling an orthotic seat or reclining seat on your own. Elaborate technology with high investment costs in the five-figure area belonging to the past. And the best part: The scanner pays off after only a few applications.

Miling

In the process of milling seats, SAVI is your reliable partner. After having sent us your file created by using the scanner, we produce, matching to your vacuum imprint, exact correspondences made of foam by using CNC technology. We approach this without lavish rework – fast, precise and of course within the agreed delivery time.

From vacuum imprint to milling block (example)

Vaccum imprint and milling block

The easiest method is to scan the vacuum imprint with a 3D scanner. If you do not have a scanner, you can also fill the vacuum imprint with assembly foam like you can see here. The foamed imprint (e. g. vacuum imprint) of the client can be scanned by us. Afterwards we mill a foam block by the millimeter based to the scan file.

Advantage of the 3D scan method:

-easy handling (data transmission by e-mail)

-no storage costs for models

-environmentally friendly because of no wasted material
