What is a 3D Plantar scanner?
3D Plantar Scanner is a 3D foot scanner based on laser scanning and performs the foot scan in full/semi-weight and no-weight modes. Also, 3D plantar scanner detects the foot arch type and height.
3d plantar scanner provides measuring the exact dimensions of the longitudinal and transverse foot arch.
Due to the precise modeling of the plantar, designing a custom orthotic insole with a 3D plantar scanner is very easy and has accurate dimensions and no longer requires time-consuming measurements of the sole dimensions and detecting the foot arch type, as all this data is available in PayaTek 3D Plantar scanner software.
The ability to quickly scan a large number of clients in a short time helps save time.
Because the 3D plantar scanner is portable, patients with mobility issues can be scanned while lying on the examination bed.
What is the difference between a 3D plantar scanner and an optical scanner?
Optical scanners represent a digital foot image to detect the foot size. This tool consists of a 2D scanner that is used to scan text and paper. The optical scanner is placed in a frame with thick glass and takes a photo of the foot sole with accurate dimensions. These scanners do not have sensors or facilities for measuring foot arch height or anthropometric indicators. Although in some models of this device, imaging and changing the color of different parts of the foot sole may appear to measure pressure in different parts, these measurements are not scientifically accurate.
The 3D plantar scanner provides the real foot sole dimensions due to its precise 3D modeling. 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 arch type.
3D plantar scanner (PT-3D PLANTAR) is a simple and economical version of a 3D Foot Scanner that is optimized for insole design applications.
3D plantar scanner OUTPUT
PayaTek 3D plantar scanner represents a 3D model of foot sole in STL/PLY format.
This 3D model allows for precise measurement of the longitudinal and transverse dimensions of the arch, heel width and the angle of the toes. As a result, this data aids in a more accurate diagnosis of foot deformities.
Additionally, automatic detection determines whether the foot has a flat, low, normal, or high arch.
Also, you can enable automatic measurements and get the data after each scan, without the need for special assessment.
The 3D plantar model significantly increases your productivity in designing the most accurate, comfortable, and speedy insoles, providing the right support and cushioning for your clients’ feet.
In PT-Insole Design software, the 3D model is automatically applied to the insole.
3D plantar and 3D foot scan
Foot pressure scanners can’t determine the height of the foot arch as they only measure the pressure. Furthermore, some patients have foot abnormalities that cannot be detected using straightforward instruments such as pens, calipers, or rulers.
3D foot scanners allow specialists to take precise measurements of the foot and plantar surface as well as consider the patients’ foot shapes in the design/construction of insoles or other orthoses. As a result, this insole will be the most compatible with the patient’s feet.

Single foot or two feet scanning
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 plantar scanner requires simulation of such a situation. For this reason, each foot must be scanned separately.
Where can we do a 3D foot scan?
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, orthopedic specialists, podiatrists, and corrective movement specialists are able to use this device.
