How Grace Reduces the Time It Takes to Produce Prosthetic Sockets


How do the technicians at Grace Prosthetic Fabrication reduce the time it takes to produce prosthetic and orthotic devices?

Grace has been in the prosthetic industry for a long time, and we’ve seen tons of changes over the years. Many of those changes are obviously focused on improving the quality of prosthetics, but it’s also important to reduce the time it takes to design, create, and deliver one to a patient. Our professionals are doing their part by being dedicated to their careers and using advanced technology to create the best prosthetic sockets on the market. To give you a better idea of what’s involved, let’s take a look at how Grace reduces the time it takes to produce prosthetic sockets.

Our Dedication to Patients

Every technician at Grace is dedicated to making each patient’s life as easy as possible. We understand that patients are often quite nervous and apprehensive about receiving a prosthetic, even if it’s not their first. To help alleviate the burden, we stay laser-focused on the task at hand.

We’ve also streamlined each stage of production. These elements work together to reduce the time it takes for the prosthetic sockets to be produced.

Pre-Design Discussion

The more information our designers have from the start, the more quickly they can finish the project. Our staff will go over all of the details of the prosthetic, including any customization that needs to be done. This will also include any customized sleeves to go over the prosthesis. Not only will this speed up the production process, but it will also ensure that everything goes more smoothly all the way through the delivery of the prosthetic.

3D Design Technology

Technology has been instrumental in reducing the time it takes to produce prosthetic sockets and other related devices. Using an advanced CAD/CAM system, the prosthetic will be created in a virtual environment by a designer well-versed in the software. The 3D model that’s created can be easily manipulated to ensure 100% accuracy during every stage of the production, thereby shortening the length of the process.

3D Printing Technology

In recent years, 3D printing has become a popular production method for many industries. This technology has been instrumental in constructing and delivering prosthetic sockets and the prosthetics themselves in the shortest time possible. Grace uses the most advanced 3D printing technology available to ensure durability, accuracy, and expediency. As this technology continues to grow and allows even faster production, Grace will be standing by, ready to use it.

State-of-the-Art Carver

During the construction of prosthetic sockets, a primary piece of technology that’s required is the system’s carver. Grace uses a highly advanced, state-of-the-art carver that will perfectly translate the 3D model into a real piece of hardware. Thanks to the precision and speed of the carver and the system it’s used in, prosthetics can be produced more accurately and quickly.

30 Years of Experience

All the technology in the world won’t mean much if you don’t have a team with the experience to use it. Grace has been part of the industry for more than three decades. During that time, we’ve learned everything there is to know about producing prosthetic sockets and other devices. This has allowed us to speed up the entire process of design and production. This also allows us to maintain the high level of quality that patients expect.

High-Quality Materials

It’s obvious that using high-quality materials in the production of a prosthesis will help ensure its durability and reliability, but it also means that the production time will be shortened. If low-quality materials are used, this increases the chance of some kind of physical breakdown or error being made through the production process. By relying solely on high-quality materials, the process won’t need to be halted due to shoddy craftsmanship.
