How to get started

Our team will assess the clinical needs depending on the range of patients coming to your clinic and the available in-house-resources. Together we will discuss clinical, economical and logistical benefits. We will then assist in choosing the appropiate hardware and software solutions.

Training will include:

  • How to scan, including opimalization of alignment and correction of deformities
  • Workflow
  • How to order 3D printed production models and definitive prosthetics and orthotics
  • Delivery schedule and how to plan product cycles

Your workflow in the clinic

1) Assess patient needs.

2) Choose digitalization method.

  • Direct scanning on the patient. Suitable when body part can be scanned in a desired position with no corrections needed.
    • Prosthetics TT, TF, KD, SY,
    • AFO
    • KAFO
    • SPINAL
  • Fiberglass casting. Suitable when limb/body part needs hands-on corrections. Cast is scanned externally or sent to us for scanning.
    • AFO with spactisity/high tone or medial/lateral valgus that is not corrected when foot placed on scanner-stand.
  • Scanning of foot impression. For 3d-printed foot orthotics or moulds.

3) Choose design method.

  • Let us prepare and design your raw-scan for production.
  • Use your in-house CAD/CAM system and send us your CAD-file ready for printing.

4) Send order using our order forms and attach your CAD-file(s). Send to

  • Alternatively, send cast for digitalization + order form.

5) Use our shipping times to estimate and schedule production and next appointment.

Technology for the clinic


3D ScanNing

For the O&P industry we recommend using Peel 1 or Artec EVA 3D-scanner. For scanning foot impressions more affordable scanners like Sense scanner or Occipital scanner can be used.

Scanner accessories

  • For scanning AFO’s and KAFO’s we recommend using our special scanner stand that has 10mm heel height shoe profile
  • Casting tape: we recommend using specifically designed casting tapes/socks such as STS casting socks or eCAST

Bahr Innovation technology



FDM/FFF is used to produce production molds and check sockets. Since 2015 we have optimized this technology for the orthotic and proshetic industry. Parameters and materials has been tested and tweaked extensively to provide optimal results and properties.


  • High quality finnish
  • Outperfoms PUR milling foam on handling characteristics
  • Price competitive
  • Improved health and safety – no dust or fumes
  • Heat resistant
  • Thermoforming of common sheet materials
  • Designed for prepreg max temperature of 110C/230F
  • Eco friendly. 4 times less waste. A typical AFO mold requires about 1,5kg of plastic filament. Comparable AFO to be milled in PUR-foam requires about 5-7.5kg of foam blank (depending on blank size and density)
HP Multi jet Fusion

Bahr Innovation use HP Multi Jet Fusion for defintive orthotics and prosthetics. Multi Jet Fusion provides strength and durability. Detail level and precision is impressive and surface quality provides a quality product for the patient. After delivering extensive numbers of defintive products to patients we have gained extensive hardware, software and material knowledge to provide next generation of CAD/CAM products to even more patients.

Industrial CAD Technology

Our design team utilize industrial CAD-software in addition to O&P-software to provide economical, reliable and precise design according to order specifications
