SpinalTech3D Scan App

Spinal Technology Offers New App for Practitioners

Our SpinalTech3D™ Scan app refines the process of ordering custom spinal orthoses from Spinal Technology, Inc. by integrating 3Dscans, images, and practitioner instructions into our custom spinal and scoliosis orthometry forms. 

 With this app, practitioners can take 3D scans, include images to denote anatomical landmarks, then write comments and instructions on the images. Our app Powered by TechMed 3D software, combines all images and documentation into one secure electronic file, which is emailed to Spinal Technology, Inc. When the file is received in-house, we use our proprietary software to modify the image based on the patient information and the brace design that the practitioner selects. The modified file is loaded to one of our six carvers to produce a positive model of the patient’s torso that is further fine-tuned for precise fabrication of a custom orthosis.

 The SpinalTech3D™ Scan app is designed to work seamlessly with an iPad and Structure Sensor.

There is no cost for the SpinalTech3D™ Scan app, it will improve accuracy and save time.

 Download this free app and experience the advantage of using it in your O&P practice.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How should my patient stand to create the most accurate scan?

    Have your patient’s arms lifted above the torso, one at a time, as you complete a 360°scan. Ensure your patient limits irregular body movement when being scanned.
  • What is the best attire for the patient during scanning?

    A tight fitting stockinette pulled down past the gluteal fold and well past the trochanter is ideal. The most common material is white or gray but any color uniformity works best. The stockinette should fit high and tight under the neck and underarms, ensuring full coverage for a proper scan.
  • Which landmarks should I include when taking a measurement?

    We recommend including the trochanter, ASIS, waist, xyphoid and scapulae for low profile orthoses; and additionally, chest and sternal notch for high profile devices.
  • How should I send in my measurements?

    Complete the proper brace design order form in the app with patient measurements.
  • Can I still scan the patient if they’re unable to stand?

    Yes. The app allows you to do a two-sided scan: posterior and anterior.
