Digitoe Develops Scanner

PORT TOWNSEND, Wa. --- Digitoe, Inc, said it has developed and patented a non contact foot scanner that can translate three-dimensional data to CAD/CAM software to produce shoe lasts for customized footwear. In addition, the company is planning to launch custom-fit specialty retail stores using this technology, with the first slated to open in Seattle by the end of 1996.

In addition to custom-fitting shoes, the Digitoe store will offer other services, such as technology-aided custom footwear in about two hours; prescription footwear services and adjustments; shoe repair; hand-made high-end custom footwear, and a branded size and width program.

By using the foot scanning device, the stores will be able to fit customers with individually-assembled footwear in just a couple of hours. The two hour service is expected to be available in men's, women's and children's basic styles, such as casual-dress, work-inspired, and walking shoes.
