Low-cost personalised insoles for diabetic foot ulcer
Cadscan is developing an extremely cost-effective system for making tailored insoles to prevent ulceration without the typical wait.
A 3D foot scanner is being designed to quickly measure a foot in 3D, capturing the foot contour and high-pressure zones. The software will take this information and, with the addition of the patient’s weight, will automatically generate 3D printing patterns for different types of shoe. A purpose-designed 3D insole printer will be designed to print this pattern quickly providing a complete, low-cost, easy-to-use, on-demand solution.
