Joliette, Canada-based Cryos Technologies on May 26 premiered a new 3D foot scanning system for podiatrists at the FIP (Federation Internationale des Podologues) World Congress of Podiatry in Montreal.
The CryoScan3D captures high-resolution, full-color 3D scans of the foot accurate to 250 microns (.25 mm) in less than .1 seconds, meaning patient movement can’t distort the scan, according to a Cryos release. The compact device (38.5 x 68.5 cm/15 x 27 inches) can scan the foot in full-,
semi- and nonweightbearing positions.
The company plans to make the system commercially available in September.
