What we do

ARANZ Medical is an innovator of medical solutions, commercializing 3D scanning applications for wound care and orthotics/prosthetics. ARANZ Medical helps customers to achieve goals such as designing custom orthotic devices for amputees, delivering more accountable wound care, and helping clinical product development companies to gain regulatory approval.

The company is not only a commercial manufacturer, but a blue sky thinker, and as such endeavours to implement technical stretch into its market offerings. The team takes each product from concept to manufacture to customer delight, and has an enviable international reputation for precision, service and quality.

Our target market 

ARANZ Medical’s main geographic market is the United States, with customers in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Europe, Asia, and New Zealand. Customers include Smith and Nephew, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and large US health systems.

ARANZ Medical’s solutions are targeted at two main international markets:

  • Silhouette for wound care in clinical practice (a $50 billion market in the US alone) and clinical research (used in more than 40 clinical trials);
  • FastSCAN to support orthotics/prosthetics design and manufacture and other scanning applications.


ARANZ Medical’s founders came up with the idea of a laser scanning device based on FastRBF™ which enables data sets consisting of myriad points to be interpolated by Radial Basis Functions (RBFs). This sophisticated 3D modeling expertise was initially used by Weta Digital in the creation of digital models for creatures in “The Lord of the Rings” film trilogy.

Today, ARANZ Medical’s state-of-the-art scanning technology is addressing a range of challenging medical problems.

The founders are still active in the development of the company’s emerging technologies.
