A personalized approach to non-invasive ventilation masks in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis using facial scanning and 3D-printing
Annals of 3D Printed Medicine
We fabricated personalized non-invasive ventilation (NIV) mask interfaces for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) participants. A NIV cushion design was fit to a contact profile from the participant's topographic facial model obtained from a 3D scanner then converted to a mold that was 3D-printed and subsequently cast with medical grade silicone and affixed to a mask frame. 3D scanner resolution plays an important role in mask interface fabrication, particularly around the nose, and iterativedoi:10.1016/j.stlm.2021.100027 fatcat:pog4z7c7jvcejmzfjpkrlbvhwu
