Firstly, many of you reading this update will have been an invaluable source of a support and feedback over the last year or so. So we wanted to start by saying a massive thank you to you all. You've played a vital part in getting us to this point and we are truly grateful.
Over the last few months we have had the privilege of working with several prosthetists, orthotists, technicians and device users, listening to their experiences and discussing how we can use software to support the clinical fitting process. After multiple cycles of development and user testing, we’re really excited that the software is now in a place where it is ready for clinical implementation.
We will be sending out this newsletter every couple of months to let you know what we’ve been up to, key updates and upcoming plans. We’re really excited to share this journey with you all.
First Socket Designed from Radii Platform is Fitted
We have been working with clinicians at Portsmouth Enablement Centre (PEC) to trial the Radii platform. A transfemoral by measures workflow was created and we are excited to report that the first socket was fitted at the end of November.
Although it requires a couple of further tweaks, everyone was pleased with the fit particularly at the top where we had adjusted the medial aspect of the brim flare using the software.
Alasdair reported that the platform was “straightforward and easy to use and the result was good”.
The prosthetic user reported finding the experience “timely and accurate”. Clinic manager Steve attended the fitting and said the platform is “very promising”. We are now making some small tweaks in preparation for producing a second socket.
Updated look and feel of the app
We’ve been working to update the interface of the app, to make designing devices as smooth and easy an experience as possible. This has included:
Working with the brilliant Lynam consulting to update the look of our platform to make it easier for you to navigate
Developing a transfemoral by measures workflow, including specific features for setting socket length, circumferences and adjusting aspects of the flare
Further bug fixes and interface developments including a chat feature to get live, in-app support.

Running our software training programme to support clinical adoption.
Further in-clinic trialling of the software.
Full software release early 2021.
