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.
Benefits of a Foot Scan by Albert. The detailed analysis of a customer’s arch height and length provides the opportunity to thwart common foot ailments such as Plantar Fasciitis* with a semi-custom orthotic that matches their specific need. When our staff know how to match the right orthotic or shoe with your foot, you will find more comfort as you walk, work, play, stand and run. The recommended orthotic or shoes can help ensure that the bones, ligaments and tendons in your feet and lower legs are aligned and positioned properly. This helps to ease pain and stress on the feet and can improve the functioning of the muscles over time.

*Plantar Fasciitis is the most common foot condition we deal with at Soft Shoe. Running the length of the underside of your foot, you have a strip of fibrous tissue called the plantar fascia. The tissue connects at your forefoot and heel, so inflammation results in a strong, painful tug at your heel. If you feel heel pain when you take your first steps in the morning, there is a great possibility that you have Plantar Fasciitis. Supporting your arch is a key component in solving this problem!
