CASTomize is a new system of casting procedure, introducing custom-fit 3D printed casts which allow for modular rehabilitative functional tiles. Unlike traditional casts made of plaster and fiberglass which are bulky and have up to 60% risks of misfits, CASTomize minimizes the risks of misfits and discomforts while accelerating recovery.
LIPEN is an authentication technology that incorporates facial recognition, lip movement analysis and liveness checks for secure and convenient logins.
LOCOMO is an immersive Mixed Reality working space that allows companies to create the hyper-realistic working environments of their dreams, using VR technology.
