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.
Luckily, there’s an easy solution that immediately eliminates all of the waste mentioned above – the TOM-CAT Foot Scanner. With this innovative imaging system, there are no supplies to order, no time wasted on preparation and process, and no shipping costs. In fact, the simple click, check, send process of the TOM-CAT means no material costs and practically no administrative time (and reordering is just a matter of a few quick steps – no rescanning necessary – even if it’s been a year and the reorder is from a completely different lab). Imagine never again having to waste time with preparation, plaster or paperwork. Our doctors tell us that the significant savings means they are able to see more patients in the same amount of time on a much lower-cost basis, all of which mean more profit from their practice.
