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.
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 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.
