Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Foot measurement automation

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.
