The Podiatry Center is at the cutting edge of new technology and products that will give our patients the best results possible, so they can live an active and healthy lifestyle. As part of our commitment to innovation, our clinic offers FitStation powered by HP, which combines 3D foot scanning with dynamic gait analysis to enable both orthotic recommendations and 3D printed custom orthotics.
The Podiatry Center will analyze your findings and prescribe a 3D printed custom orthotic just for you. The lattice-design of the 3D printed custom orthotic is superior in every way because they are lightweight and comfortable while helping to correct the biomechanical problems that lead to pain and discomfort.
3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, is known to be very precise, and therefore, more reliable than error-prone manual manufacturing, which has dominated the custom orthotic industry since the 1950s. Unfortunately, 3-D printing custom orthotics had not been an option due to slow printing speeds and materials that lacked accuracy, durability and comfort. HP Inc. broke through those barriers through the introduction of a revolutionary Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer, patented bio-compatible nylon printing powder and lattice-design that offers unprecedented comfort and control, while maintaining a thin profile that will fit in most shoes.
