BOAT - Automated Braces generation for Orthopaedic Anatomical Treatment of fractures

The goal is to automatize the design of Patient Specific Anatomical Braces (PSAB's) used to immobilize fractured upper and lower extremities, by deforming standard 3D virtual splints to match the scanned anatomy of the patient. The applicability of the method will be evaluated in clinical setting.
