3D laser scanned orthotics

Updated: Apr 11


The podiatrists at Fitzroy Foot and Ankle Clinic use 3D laser scanning to create custom-made orthotics. 3D laser scanning has a number of advantages, including:

  • more accurate impressions of the feet;

  • no need for messy plaster casting;

  • the orthotics are returned to patients faster as the laser scan of the foot will be uploaded to the orthotic laboratory's servers immediately;

  • reduced time as the laser scanner takes a few seconds once setup;

  • the scan of the foot is electronically stored for easy retrieval in the future;

  • allows more accurate placement of offloading padding


We have invested in this technology as we feel 3D laser scanning allows us to create better custom made orthotics in a faster time-frame, which ultimately provides a better service to our patients. We are able to provide this extra service without any extra costs being passed on to our patients.
