Aranz Medical, the specialist in 3D scanning and informatics solutions for the healthcare sector, has been named a finalist in the New Zealand Hi-Tech Awards 2016. More specifically, the company has been shortlisted for the Coretex Hi-Tech Emerging Company of the Year.

Aranz Medical’s solutions for skin and wound assessment transform clinical assessment processes, improve quality of care, and make service delivery more cost-effective. Key innovations include: Silhouette, an FDA-approved advanced wound surveillance system which supports precise and productive wound management in clinical practice and research; and FastSCAN which enables the custom-fit of orthotics and prosthetics.
