Delcam has introduced an enhanced version of its Orthomodel design software for EVA custom orthotic insoles, with options for the design of corrective orthotics.

Orthomodel 2013 R2 enables the real-time design of both accommodative orthotics, which are ideal for patients with diabetes and those requiring comfort insoles, and corrective orthotics, which address problems with the patient’s foot orientation and gait cycle.

The software has a direct interface to Delcam’s IQube scanners, all of which are able to scan the patient’s foot, foam boxes or casts. It can also import scan data from most other systems.

Once the scan data has been imported, new trimming tools allow the removal of any unwanted data before aligning the scan. Faster alignment tools enable quicker design times, while giving information such as arch height, scan length and other key measurements.

Further information

  • Following scan alignment, Orthomodel creates the orthotic design automatically by simply selecting from a number of types. The range of types is configured by the user according to the way in which he or she prescribes.
  • Each type has a ‘recipe’ of parameters that is combined with the required trim profile and the scan to create a truly custom insole. A range of additions, including pads, bars and depressions, can be applied to the design to relieve pain or ulcerations.
  • In addition to the extensive range of parameters that can be adjusted, including arch fill, forefoot tapers, flanges and heel cups, the user can now apply corrective features. Intrinsic forefoot and rearfoot posts can be added to adjust foot alignment, and heel raise or lift can be applied in the event of leg-length discrepancies.
  • Rapid generation of designs that can be instantly visualised and modified in 3D ensures that the practitioner and customer are satisfied with the product before it is sent for manufacture, minimising the possibility of returns.

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times.
