Simpla

About

A prosthetic breast personalized to you

Simpla is an external breast prosthesis that is designed to fit the specific contours of the wearer’s body. This project is created for women who have experienced one-sided mastectomy in which one of their breasts was surgically removed. Simpla provides a highly personalized prosthetic by using 3D scanning and printing technologies. The Simpla user takes a series of photographs of her torso and then uploads them to a dedicated Web application that generates a 3D scan of her body. Based on this scan, a base model of the prosthesis is created. This model is designed to be a mirror image of the user’s remaining breast. She can then further personalize her piece in terms of type, structure and colour.
