Capture Mobile System

3d scanner
Designed by lab director Michael Bozzaotra, the Capture image scanning system enables a neutral, non-weight-bearing foot position while scanning. Using this technology, physicians can achieve superior results that lead to optimal patient outcomes. Capture employs a user-friendly, proprietary order application and is mobile, allowing you to scan anywhere in your office. Call Performance or click here to learn more
 

scanner3dThe Capture 3D mobile image scanner moves from treatment room to treatment room. Employing proprietary software, the system allows managing and sending prescriptions and plantar foot scans via secure Wifi. Designed to meet the needs of the high-volume practice, the Capture system takes plantar foot scans with the patient in the treatment chair allowing a neutral, non-weight bearing position image of the foot. A study conducted at the Temple School of Podiatric Medicine completed in 2016 using the Capture image scanning system showed no appreciable difference when compared to traditional neutral plaster casting.*TUSPM study available upon request

While holding the foot in neutral position, minimal pressure of the plantar surface of the foot is applied to the glass scanning plate. Scans take 2-3 seconds per foot. The system is connected to your wireless network. A copy of the PDF order form and foot image scans are sent to your email address on file so the Rx can be down loaded and imported into an EMR or printed and charted. Scans can be bundled and sent to the lab to maximize savings on return postage so appliances can be returned grouped together.

They are different than 2D-to-3D conversion scanners that provide a picture or .bmp file of the foot that is then converted into a 3D image. 2D-to-3D conversion scanners could suffer considerable loss in the conversion process. True 3D scanners employ a series of cameras, lasers and mirrors to capture not only the plantar surface of the foot but also the posterior heel and medial and lateral sides of the foot to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art rendering. Systems cost between $3000-$4000. The scanner including installation, all maintenance, laptop and mobile laser cart are provided to qualified customers free of charge. This eliminates the time and cost of traditional casting as the Capture scanning system only takes a few seconds to do a scan, drastically cutting material and labor costs.

Capture Wand System

capture wand

The Capture Wand System is an iPad Mini-based scanning device with unprecedented ease of use and portable convenience. Requiring only one hand to scan, the Wand allows the practitioner to capture a 3-D image of the foot in a neutral, non-weight-bearing position while the patient is seated in the treatment chair. Its application automatically populates an electronic order form that's sent directly to our laboratory. The ultimate in portability, the Wand can be utilized across multiple offices and is easily stored out of sight. Call Performance for details or click here to learn more. 

 

Scanner

Welcome to the next generation of podiatric scanning. The Capture Wand System of scanning eliminates the time and cost of traditional casting. It produces a highly accurate scan in only a few seconds and slashes both material and labor costs. 

The Capture Wand System employs an iPad Mini with a structure sensor, which allows the practitioner to capture dense geometry, such as the plantar surface of the foot, in real-time. The sensor enables the scanner to simulate high-fidelity 3-D models with high-resolution textures in just seconds.

The sensor uses an infrared, structured light projector and uniform infrared LED to triangulate the coordinates between the iPad's on-board camera, the foot and the structure sensor, providing an accurate 3-D image.

While looking at the iPad screen, the practitioner centers the patient's foot in an outlined, 3-D rectangle, known as the bounding box. The practitioner grips the Capture Wand's non-slip handle and holds the device approximately 40 cm from from the plantar surface of the patient's foot, centering the foot inside the bounding box.

This allows the practitioner to cover the foot with plaster, which indicates when the surface is captured in 3-D to an accuracy of 0.5mm at 40cm (0.15%).

The Capture Wand not only captures the plantar surface of the foot but also the posterior heel and medial and lateral sides of the foot, providing the laboratory with crucial rearfoot heel architecture. These data help establish a rearfoot bisection line that allows the forefoot to be accurately posted.

order form

The scanner's software application automatically populates an order form that accompanies the scans when sent to the laboratory. The app's database manages all order forms and scans.

Practitioner's offices can submit scans to the laboratory in consecutive batches. Finished appliances are grouped together for shipping to maximize savings on return postage.
