Cryos Technologies, a company out of Québec, Canada, is releasing the new CryoScan3D scanner that images feet in 3D to help podiatrists create dynamic orthoses. The device creates volumetric scans down to 250 microns resolution, in full color and even while the feet are not perfectly still. Each exposure takes less than 0.1 seconds, allowing multiple scans to be done quickly while avoiding smudges or fuzziness due to foot movement.
It has no moving parts, so should last a good while, and can be used to perform scans while the patients are in full-, semi- and non-weight bearing positions.
“3D scanning allows you to capture patient data anywhere and transmit it electronically. With this new system in place, what you scan is exactly what you will get from a Cryos orthotic – a fully customized device, rather than the closest match from a template library,” said John Stimpson, President of Cryos Technologies, in a statement.
