Fuel3D has unveiled their very first custom enterprise solution which takes the form of the new CryoScan3D Foot Scanner which has been created for foot orthotics. Check out the video below to learn more about this new foot scanner which has been developed in conjunction with Cryos.
The Fuel3D foot scanner should make designing customised orthotics much easier and faster by providing a more accurate 3D scan of the person’s foot. John Stimpson, President of Cryos Technologies explains a little more about the new 3D foot scanner.
Gone are the days of plaster moulds and geographic limitations in our industry – digital imaging allows the podiatry and orthotics business to be scaled up to new levels. We wanted to address some of the key challenges in 3D foot-scanning and Fuel3D’s scanning platform provided us with a high-quality, cost-effective way to do that. We have worked very effectively with the Fuel3D development team to build the CryoScan3D, and are looking forward to transforming the podiatry sector with this great product.
The 3DPrint website explains :
Cryos’ dynamic orthotic insoles are made from a strong, flexible polymer that works with the foot while in motion, stabilizing it without affecting mobility. Standard-sized insoles bought at the drugstore may be fine if you’re only looking for a bit of padding and shock absorption, but for more serious or chronic foot, back or posture issues, custom-fitting orthotics are important.
3D printing and 3D scanning have proven to be tremendously useful in the development of custom insoles, with companies like iMcustom and Wiiv Wearables offering their own 3D printed orthotic solutions. The market for orthotic insoles is a fast-growing one; a recent study from market research firm IndustryARC predicted that the global market will reach $3.5 billion by 2020.
