Plaster and fiberglass casts are delicate and prone to breaking. The materials are hard to work with, and any accidental movements prior to final setting can result in inaccuracies that require a repeat of the entire process. Learn more.
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 for everyone involved. Learn more.
We talk to doctors everyday who are fed up with the way that custom orthotics are being produced. From the messy casting methods, to the wasteful and inefficient shipping process, to being locked in a relationship with a specific lab, the entire orthotics industry is ready for a change. We are confident that the TOM-CAT™ foot scanner is the change doctors (and patients) have been waiting for. Learn more.
Save Time and Money
It all starts with the administrative time: the costs of ordering, stocking and managing inventory, preparing individual “batches” for casting, cleaning up the mess, shipping molds and tracking the progress of each order. Then there are the material costs: the copying and printing to produce reams of paperwork, the plaster and/or fiberglass, the fabric and shipping boxes. When you add up the cost of everything that’s involved in “molding” a patient’s foot and fitting them for custom orthotics, the waste of it all quickly becomes apparent. Learn more.
While it may sound too good to be true, it’s really quite simple. With the TOM-CAT™ Foot Scanner, patient loads are increasing and costs are decreasing, producing a welcome rise in profit, increases in a diminishing-margin, insurance-controlled marketplace. Learn more.
