3D Plantar Scanner (FLS100) is based on laser scanning and performs the foot scan in full/ semi and non-weight. Also, help to detection of the foot arch height.
Foot scanning based on this method provides measuring the exact dimensions of the longitudinal and transverse arch of the foot in the normal position. Due to the precise modeling of the plantar, designing a special medical insole with a 3D foot scanner is very easy and has accurate dimensions. The ability to quickly scan a large number of patients in a short time helps save time. Because of the exact shape of the foot sole, the design of a medical insole no longer requires time-consuming measurement of the sole dimensions and the position of the foot arch, as all this information is available in FuturU 3D Plantar scanner software. The compactness and portability of the device for patients who have mobility problems, allow being scanned while lying on the examination bed.

What is the difference between a 3D plantar scanner and an optical scanner?
Optical scanners actually represent the digital foot size. This tool is made of a 2D scanner that is used to scan text and paper. The optical scanner is placed in a frame with thick glass and actually takes a photo of the foot sole with real dimensions. In these scanners, there are no sensors or facilities to measure pressure or arch height. Although in some models of this device, by using imaging and changing the color of different parts of the foot sole, it seems the pressure has been measured in different parts, but these measurements are not scientifically correct.
The 3D plantar scanner provides the actual sole dimensions due to the precise modeling of the plantar. On the other hand, by layering the soles at standard heights and checking the area of the sole that is in contact with the ground, it automatically determines the type of arch. A more complete version of our product is FLS300 (3D foot scanner). Extremely precise of 3D plantar scanner gives a comprehensive visualization to researchers and specialists.
The output of the 3D plantar scanner
FuturU 3D plantar scanner represent a 3D model of foot sole.
This 3D model allows for precise measurement of the longitudinal and transverse dimensions of the arch, the angle of the fingers, the location of the heel, and the angle of the fingers. As a result, this knowledge aids in a more accurate diagnosis of foot problems. Additionally, an automatic detection system determines whether the foot has a flat, low, normal or high arch. The 3D model of this device is used to produce medical insoles.
The output of the 3D plantar scanner significantly increases your productivity for designing the most accurate, fast and easy medical insoles. In the medical insole design software, the output of the 3D model is automatically applied to the insole.
3D plantar scanner and 3D foot scanner
Foot pressure scanners can’t determine the height of the foot arch because they only measures the pressure at the foot locations that are in contact with the ground. Additionally, some patients have foot abnormalities that cannot be detected using straightforward instruments like pens, calipers, or rulers.
3D foot scanners (FLS300) allow specialists to take precise measurements of the foot and plantar. Also, they can consider the shapes created in the patients’ feet in the construction of insoles or other orthoses. As a result, the insole made will be more compatible with the patients’ feet.

Single foot or two feet
We know that the most weight-bearing state in the gait cycle is related to the mid-stance phase when all the weight of the body is on one foot so, the exact dimensions of the plantar have special importance in this state. As a result, foot scanning with a 3D foot scanner requires simulation of such a situation. For this reason, each foot is scanned separately.
Specialists who can use 3D Plantar
Because the 3D foot scan accurately measures the physical dimensions of the plantar, it is used to measure longitudinal and transverse arch heights and toe angles, and to diagnose heel deformities. For this reason, technical orthopedic specialists, podiatrists, and corrective movement specialists are able to use this device.
