The iTOM-CAT™ Foot Scanner System:
The Electronic Alternative to Plaster Foot Casts
It is truly astounding that, in our advanced technological society, archaic and primitive casting methods are still being used to produce custom orthotics. The entire process is messy and time-consuming for everyone involved. Traditional methods of fitting patients with custom orthotics involved plaster casting, which required physical storage space, costly inventory, messy preparation and wasted time. Doctors and assistants spent considerable time and money trying to capture accurate images that could be used by the different labs.
We understand the doctor – Orthotic lab relationship and the need to respond and resolve issues quickly.
"The iTOM-CAT scanner has been the greatest innovation I have seen in 20 years. This incredible technology using an IPad and a small camera attached to it enables us to perform a 3-D digital scan of a person’s foot and ankle. We have been using this device for way over a year to make custom orthotics. The orthotics we have been dispensing have been much more superior to other casting methods. We are now starting to use the iTOM-CAT scanner for Richie braces. The ease of use and accurate results are amazing."
