Did you know each of your feet have 26 bones, 33 joints, and over a 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments? That is a lot to take care of! Even with a healthy lifestyle, foot problems are common in millions of Americans. Our level of activity and work load force us to over use our feet, so proper support and shoe fitting are essential.
Meet Soft Shoe’s Albert Foot Scanner. Albert is the latest technology foot scanning system, by Aetrex Worldwide Inc. This new and improved technology represents a major leap in foot health analysis from their iStep Foot Scanner. Aetrex saw the need to improve their foot scanner because other devices on the market would measure one or more aspects of the foot, but nothing had all the foot scanning analysis in a single system.
Exceptional Technology. The new scanning system, dubbed Albert, consists of a device that, like previous iterations, can measure pressure and sizing. It also conducts 3-D imaging, assesses pronation and has the ability to track gait. How does Albertaccomplish this? This new foot scanner, which arrived at our store in early August 2017, features 18 digital cameras, 960 infrared LEDs and receptors, and over 5,000 gold plated barometric sensors.
