Digital shape acquisition system offers revolutionary orthotic prescription
ANAHEIM, Calif., June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- PAL Health Technologies will debut the new Xtremityscan System and give away a free unit at the Western Podiatric Medical Conference in Anaheim, California, June 19-22 at the Disneyland Hotel.
Xtremityscan is a digital shape acquisition system that allows users to acquire three-dimensional foot shapes in seconds, without the messy, time-consuming plaster casting process formerly used to obtain the same information. Xtremityscan's advanced imaging software, the PAL Scanmanager, features a user-friendly electronic patient database, custom prescription orthotic ordering solutions, and simple online ordering, resulting in faster orthotic production and delivery.
"Patient data is quickly and easily captured and stored using this system," said PAL Health Technologies Vice President, Lois Barnum. "Orthotic selection is also simplified, allowing Xtremityscan users to select from options built into the software included with the system or customize prescriptions as needed."
The Western Podiatric Medical Congress is the largest podiatric exhibition west of the Mississippi. PAL will host Xtremityscan demonstrations at booth 608 during the event. Demonstration attendees will be registered to win a free Xtremityscan Micro, a portable model of the scanner.
Xtremityscan is available as a mobile cart-based scanning system that operates wirelessly and can move between treatment rooms, or as a portable model that can travel among multiple offices.
System software captures an image of the plantar surface of the foot, then creates a three-dimensional model of the image. Images can be rotated 360 degrees and displayed in wireframe, surface and topographical views.
Prescriptions are easily uploaded via PAL's secure servers. During uploads, the system automatically detects and transparently installs any necessary software updates.
Xtremityscan is available for lease through PAL, and is currently in use across the United States.
