3D Foot Scan Evaluation
Today’s customers not only look at aesthetic beauty but also quality, comfort and fit. New technologies such as digitization and virtual 3D tailoring are providing more options to consumers and designers in designing different styles with the least possible time. Next to the shoe fashion and style, good fit and comfort are the second important determinant in the purchase of footwear. Although there is a need for better fitting, there are no techniques for fit quantification. In traditional orthotic manufacturing, the foot is categorized by the length and width (or girth), hence there is always a mismatch between the complex foot shape and orthotic shape. For the industry in order to meet the demand for better footwear, new techniques for fit quantification is required in order to have a direct mapping frorm foot (a mold for making orthotic).
