US compression garment maker Marena brings 3D body scanning technology to reduce fit issues after surgery

Marena Group – a leading compression garment manufacturer based in the US – has partnered with Fit:match.ai., a technology platform to launch an AI-powered body scanning app.

The app allows the clinics’ plastic surgeons to match their patients with the post-op clothes that best suit them. Like the company, until now, many doctors and patients have faced challenges in achieving the perfect fit for post-surgical compression garments, which are important for supporting the body’s recovery process after surgical procedure.

It is worth noting here that solving the issue of fit after surgery always remains a challenge for health professionals and patients.

Colin Marafko, Chief Marketing and E-Commerce Officer of Marena, commented, “This partnership with Fit:match enables us to take that commitment to a new level by ensuring that the patient is in the ideal size -on and stylish clothing for their unique anatomical characteristics and methods.”

Dale Clendon, Chief Executive Officer, added, “The app not only ensures that each patient is in the correct Marena garment, but also saves doctors time on manual measurements and increases their confidence that their patients will be satisfied with their results.”

Marena’s new sizing and garment selection app uses LiDAR and Fit:match’s AI-driven, 3D body-shape technology to scan surgical patients at recommended pre- and post-procedure intervals to match them with the products that best suit their changing shape on each stage.

To receive their recommended matches, a patient must register with the app on an iPhone. A staff member at their doctor’s office completes the 360-degree scan over the phone, which takes less than 20 seconds.

The app then analyzes the patient’s unique body shape data and suggests the size and style of clothing that will provide the best fit at each post-operative stage to support their recovery.

“We are thrilled to bring our tech-enabled retail solution to the post-surgical recovery space in partnership with Marena, a brand that has long led innovation in post-surgical and compression garment technology,” said Haniff Brown, Founder and CEO of Fit. :same.
