Foot Levelers is the world-leading provider of individually designed functional orthotics. They have improved millions of patients' functionality and quality of life. We engaged with them in their search for improving the process of building custom orthotics.
Industry 4.0 players are always in the search of improving their operation's efficiencies. Foot Levelers wanted to explore manual process automation by incorporating Machine Learning solutions and speeding up the manufacturing process.
We helped Foot Levelers to automate their manufacturing processes by applying Machine Learning and Computer Vision solutions. Measurements and placement algorithms allowed us to enhance the custom orthotics design.
The system is based on multiple keypoint detection algorithms that are able to automatically locate the relevant spots within over thousands of foot scans processed every day.
We developed a system to automatically detect 4 key points from a foot scan: top ("highest" toe), bottom (heel), left and right (with respect to metatarsal heads). These key points can then be used to measure the length and width of the foot, information necessary to select the insole's size.
