ARANZ Medical Ltd has been named a finalist in the 2015 New Zealand Hi-Tech Awards.

The fast growing company which specialises in 3D scanning applications that transform clinical processes in wound care and orthotics/ prosthetics, has been shortlisted for the Cisco Hi-Tech Emerging Company of the Year 2015 category.
