eCast™

eCast™ provides clinicians and patients a simple solution to custom brace measuring. VQ OrthoCare has developed this proprietary digital casting system using the latest advances in digital photography and computer software. eCast’s accuracy and efficiency expedite the custom brace manufacturing process, and eliminate the time, materials, shipping costs and difficulties associated with traditional casting and measuring methods.

After a digital camera captures precise leg anatomy, the images are uploaded to our Web-based ordering system and our clinical and technical staff immediately begin analysis and fabrication of a custom brace.
