Title
(EN) METHOD FOR DESIGNING AND PRODUCING A CUSTOMIZED DEVICE, THE SHAPE OF WHICH IS ADAPTED TO THE USER'S MORPHOLOGY
Abstract
(EN)

A method for manufacturing a customized apparatus with a shape adapted to a specific user's morphology, or a mold for such an apparatus, includes obtaining a description of a generic apparatus, or of the mold for such an apparatus, the generic apparatus being adapted to a generic morphology. A description of the generic morphology and a description of the specific user's morphology is obtained. The descriptions of the generic morphology and of the specific user's morphology are processed to identify a geometric transformation mapping together the generic morphology and the specific user's morphology. The geometric transformation is applied to the description of the generic apparatus, or the description of the mold for such apparatus, in order to define the description of the customized apparatus or the mold therefor. The customized apparatus is then manufactured.
