Computer aided design (CAD) technology is used to perform precision corrections. This technology replaces manual plaster work while still servicing traditional prescription variables. The Orthotist gather your biomechanical information through the use of a Biomechanical plate and they scan your foot digitally with an SLS 3D scanner or 3D Foam Scanner. This information is combined in the CAD software to generate a “virtual positive”. Your prescription variables are applied to the “virtual positive” and computer aided manufacture is utilized to produce custom orthotics to your exact design specifications.
Once the design process is complete the finished file is sent to the milling machine to manufacture your individual pair of orthotics in under 30 minutes
