When Intramedullary nails are manufactured for use in implants, absolute precision is key to ensure their perfect fit in the human body.  The WMM system with its optical measurement technology gives additional accuracy over purely tactile measurement methods. 

The nail is measured by inserting it into a fixture vertically: the WMM camera then follows the nails contour as it rotates, identifying its shape as well as length, diameter and radius. 

The powerful Saphir software is FDA approved and incorporates patented wobble compensation to ensure precise and reliable measurements.
