our vision

Automatic patient-specific rehabilitation technologies

3Digity is a medtech startup which develops automated processes to create the next generation of individualized medical devices for improving movement (prevention, rehabilitation, training).

Therefore, we use technology to allow patients to maximize their quality of life through data-based support of their path to full, painfree mobility. Our first use-case is rehabilitation of the injured hand where we want to bring our technology successfully to the market.

 

An integration of automated image analysis with parametric biomechanics and 3D printing will make possible to offer rehabilitation devices tailored to the individual patient anatomic and biomechanical requirements. Our workflow creates 3D-print-ready files and can be integrated into different workflows (from manual inserting of data to digital APIs) with the aim to integrate the devices into a rehabilitation process within a very short time.

 

3Digity is the central data platform that uses various algorithms to generate an orthosis from body data and the medical indication that matches the patient's size and mobility needs. While this process can in principle be applied to any joint of the body, the fingers have been identified as the entry market for this technology.

Steps

How It Works

The innovative workflow makes it possible to provide a custom device for each patient's individual rehabilitation needs within a very short period of time. In contrast to stationary rehabilitation devices, an unlimited number of patients can be cared for, at the same time. Moreover, this can be done anywhere, even at home. Through the reuse of electrical components, costs can be amortized over a large number of patients and the environment is helped.
