Custom-made shoes

What the Industry Needs

There are now over 7 billion individuals on our planet, and no 2 persons are exactly alike. We are all different from each other, and so are our feet. Shoemakers do their very best to design shoes that will fit the majority of people, but it is impossible to get a perfect fit for everyone. Making the perfect shoe for a given person would ideally require an accurate replica of the foot from which precise measurements could be extracted. A 3D scanning solution is a quick, precise and efficient tool to create an exact virtual replica of a foot; moreover it is the gateway to CAD/CAM fabrication methods.

Advantages of the HandySCAN 3D Solution

Scanning live patients directly inside clinics calls for a technology that is simple, easy to use, fast and accurate; precisely what the HandySCAN 3D technology has been designed for. The generated 3D file can then be used to extract measurements, proceed to virtual corrections (when required) and sent directly to a CNC machine for fabrication.

The generated 3D files can also easily and securely be transferred over the internet allowing several remote clinics to send their files to a single fabrication location where the production can be optimized to get the most out of the CNC machines. The captured 3D data can also be stored on a hard drive for future use and prevent the use of a warehouse.

The HandySCAN 3D technology is also very portable allowing the technician to travel with his scanner and perform scans on-site if required.
