Healthcare x 3D x Knit
Body shape information is scanned

which is used to knit WHOLEGARMENT
Items can be tailored
to the individual body of each patient.
While personalized healthcare is becoming
WHOLEGARMENT knitting becomes the perfect solution
with its on-demand custom capability.
With WHOLEGARMENT, wearable smart textiles
featuring embedded electronics,
IC tags, and communication antennas etc.
can be produced.
With the 3D design system SDS-ONE APEX series,
designs can be examined
with "virtual samples" created by simulations,
during the stages of planning and design.
The need for sampling is eliminated
because it is realistic enough to be regarded
as an actual product, which can shorten
lead times for product development.
Furthermore, the original data can be used
for programming for the production machine,
and production can be started immediately
after design approval.
Production of medical products
can be further automated.
