KUPPD: 3D scanning post-mastectomy
This project is looking to improve breast prostheses by understanding people’s experiences and preferences following treatment for breast cancer.
Using innovative 3D body scanning technology, researchers will build a virtual model of the area affected by breast cancer surgery. The model can be used to develop perfectly fitting 3D breast prostheses.
Results from this project will be used to inform the development of better products and services to better serve the breast cancer community.
It is being carried out by KUPPD in collaboration with researchers at the Manchester Fashion Institute (part of Manchester Metropolitan University) and partly funded by Health Innovation Manchester.
