Thursday, June 30, 2016

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Horton’s Orthotics & Prosthetics now uses high-precision CAD/CAM scanning technology. The provider has acquired a Vorum CAD/CAM scanner and high-speed carver, becoming the first in the state to deliver a faster and more comfortable experience for patients needing new orthotic and prosthetic devices. This technology can digitally capture an amputee or injured patient’s limb shape with a pinpoint level of accuracy, the provider says. “Technicians can them use the program’s software to modify the shape and create a successfully fitting socket or brace design that can be fabricated quickly and efficiently,” it stated in a press release. “Using this technology, the initial fabrication processes that took nearly two hours will now take only two minutes.” Horton’s employs more than 35 at five facilities across the state.
