A smart textile as an alternative to plaster molding

Short description

Plaster cast is a method used to design orthoses and prostheses. In this way a patient specific negative model is obtained. However, this process is wet, inaccurate and time consuming. This work presents a smart textile to digitize limb shapes. This new process is clean, versatile, and more precise.
