Planmeca at the Ice Hockey World Championships

The Planmeca Group is to supply a Planmed Verity™ extremity scanner and Planmeca Compact i dental care unit for the on-site emergency room at the Helsinki venue of the International Ice Hockey Federation’s World Championships to be held in Helsinki and Stockholm this May.
 
The Planmed Verity™ extremity scanner is an all-new approach to orthopaedic imaging that helps detect fractures in the extremities – typical injuries incurred by ice hockey players – that are often missed with conventional technology.

Planmed Verity™ acquires an accurate 3D image with a lower radiation dose than traditional CTs, because of its use of pulsed X-rays. Thanks to its anatomy-specific design, Planmed Verity™ also offers a unique new application: weight-bearing imaging.
 
The Planmeca Compact i dental unit, designed to support the workflow of dental teams, will be used at the World Championships to help in diagnosing dental injuries and giving first-aid treatment. The fully digital unit is ergonomic for the dentist and convenient for the patient, while conforming to the strictest safety and infection control regulations. Over 25,000 Planmeca Compact i units have been sold worldwide.

The Planmeca Group, which includes Planmeca Oy and Planmed Oy, is a specialist in the field of dental and medical equipment. Based in Helsinki, the Group expects to record net sales of EUR 750 million this year, and employs around 2,400 people.

Founded in 1971, Planmeca Oy designs and manufactures dental care units and dental imaging equipment, as well as related software, and is the largest privately owned company in its field. Planmed Oy designs and manufactures imaging equipment and accessories for mammography and orthopaedic imaging.
