Ferdowsi University produces foot scanner

Researchers at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad in the northeastern province of Khorasan Razavi have developed a foot scanner.

The scanner can speedily scan feet, which can greatly reduce the time to design and manufacture the insole for diabetics.  

Every patient requires an individual assessment and often a personalized insole.

The scanner rapidly processes the scanned data into an accurate image with comprehensive measurement information. Full shape and a series of foot measurements are recorded.

Patients with peripheral neuropathy resulting from diabetes mellitus are at high risk of developing foot ulceration.

Reduced sensation, in combination with high underfoot pressures, have been identified as prime etiology factors in the case of plantar naturopathic ulceration.
