The clinician takes the measurements of the customer’s feet by doing a 3D scan or making a cast or plaster cast. The data is then sent digitally or physically to our CADCAM department.
Our CADCAM department designs a last based on the blueprint and the measurements. Then, we mill the last and give it a detailed finish.
To obtain the best possible fit for the final shoe, inlays and a test shoe are made. This is to check the fit, also called the fitting stage. After this stage, the customer can opt for an extra fitting stage with a leather test shoe or inner shoe to test the shoe concept.
3. Assembling the shoe
After fitting the test shoe, together the customer and the clinician choose the shoe model that best meets the customer’s needs. Then, the clinician enters the details, like the closing, heel height and outer sole, in the digital order form. All this information is sent to our production department, along with the corrected lasts and inlays.
We adjust the lasts and inlays and then production starts on the orthopedic shoes. As agreed, the clinician receives the shoes.
4. Direct delivery
Some clinicians opt to have shoes produced directly, without the fitting stage. These orders are often sent in along with a 3D scan or through CYScan. Our CADCAM department sends the clinician a screenshot of the made last design. The lasts are milled once they are approved, with or without a digital last adjustment. Then, the process of making inlays and orthopedic shoes starts. As agreed, the clinician receives the shoes.
