Short description: One of the main factors extending the duration of production in orthopedics and prosthetics is personalization, the need for which arises due to differences in the shape and size of the residual limb due to injury. There are no standardized system which would enable automatic adaptation process.
Market potential: The global robotic prosthetic market size – USD 1.1 billion in 2019. Anticipated growth by 9.2% over the 2020-2027 period. Potential users – hospitals, orthopedic clinics, rehabilitation centers.
Timing: Solution is already in a high need because current process expands costs, time and human resources.
Desired result: Software capable partially or fully automate fitting of prosthetic limbs process of the socket in 3D space to the shape of the residual limb.
Information on challenge owner: Mid-Cap (250-3,000 staff).
Market presence of challenge owner: Global presence.
