Over 25 million ankle sprains are recorded per year in Europe and the USA. One way to improve the healing solution would be to explore customization brought by 3D scanning technologies. To that extent, Shining 3D has announced a partnership with EXO-L, to customize ankle protection; an announcement that follows its recent collaboration with AGE Solutions to develop a 3D digital dental software.

For those who do not know EXO-L, the company has developed a patented ankle protection against ankle sprains and mainly operated in The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

The EXO-L Ankle Brace

The EXO-L Ankle Brace is a patented, ankle protection for sports, work and daily life. It functions like a belt and its fabrication is based on the anatomy of the human ankle. It provides the user ultimate protection against ankle sprains with maximum freedom of movement.

To achieve the unique working principle and ultimate comfort a perfect fit is required. SHINING 3D EinScan-Pro & Pro+ multi-functional handheld 3D scanners offer high-quality 3D scanning and seamlessly connecting to 3D-printing, making the whole process much simpler, faster and more accurate.”

The collaboration will enlarge EXO-L’s service area worldwide. By utilizing the SHINING 3D network, EXO-L’s customers can scan anywhere. Indeed, once users have taken a scan of their ankle and submit the scans directly to the company’s database, a first check is carried out to verify the data; the scans are thereafter converted to 3D models, and a customized 3D printed ankle brace is designed; 3D printed and shipped to customers.

It should be noted that a paid-per-scan service among worldwide EinScan users is launched with this partnership.
