The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) considers your feet a marvel of engineering. Together, your two feet contain more than 50 bones, accounting for about 25% of all the bones in your body. And somehow they also make room for more than 60 joints and 200 muscles, tendons, and ligaments that hold them together and help them move.
“The health of your feet, despite their distance from your heart, can affect your overall health,” Dr. Brezinski says. (Everyday Health)
Why should I get my feet scanned at Soft Shoe?
Begin your journey to foot health at Soft Shoe in Richmond, as we offer the best over-the-counter semi-custom solution to analyzing your feet and finding the right products for your feet. The first step to total foot comfort is understanding a little bit more about your feet. Our feet are all unique to us, and come in many different shapes and sizes with particular characteristics and needs. At Soft Shoe, we offer FREE foot scans and our entire staff is trained and certified in analyzing your scans so they can confidently choose the right shoes, orthotic insoles and compression socks for your particular needs.
What makes our Foot Scanner different from the ones you see a big box chains or pharmacy shops?
Aetrex’s patented iStep® Foot Scanning Technology quickly identifies your arch type, foot size and pressure points. This revolutionary technology then custom selects the ideal orthotic styles for your particular needs. With the right orthotic style and in combination with the proper footwear, you can prevent unnecessary foot pain and achieve maximum foot comfort to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
In a matter of seconds you’ll be on your way to a better life. The Aetrex iStep® Foot Scanner is more than a sensor of heat your feet are radiating, because that is not an accurate reading. Our state-of-the-art scanner accurately measures your arch type, the size of each foot including width and length, as well as what parts of your feet you are putting more pressure on. The iStep® Scanner has 3,744 gold-plated sensors that measure your foot pressure. This precise method of measurement provides our trained iStep® technicians (Soft Shoe staff) with your arch size and type and recommends the perfect semi-custom insole for your foot type. Our staff has to go through hours of training each year so they not only understand the Scanner technology, but how to read the analysis accurately and understand how each brand of shoes will work with your feet for the greatest comfort.
