WASPmed launched the Digital Orthopedic Laboratory to expand its footprint in the 3D-printed orthopedic devices industry, 3DPrint.com reports.

Here are four things to know:

1. WASPmed, a division of the World's Advanced Saving Project, is devoted to making healthcare more affordable through 3D printing applications, with a focus on orthopedics and prosthetics.

2. The Digital Orthopedic Laboratory features a custom body scanner created from a large delta frame in which four lenses are positioned. Patients stand in the center of the frame for upper body scans, which are used to create 3D-printed braces for conditions such as scoliosis. The scans are processed using WASP's slicing and modeling software.

3. The laboratory features the 2040 TURBO2 and 4070 Industrial large-scale 3D printers.

4. WASP also donated two 3D printers to Damascus University in Syria so that it can set up its own laboratory to create affordable 3D-printed prosthetics for people wounded in war.
