Software and Scanner Setup

 

Adding Your Clinic Logo

  • Click on Settings
  • Go to Report Footer and select Image from the drop down
  • Upload your clinic logo
  • You may also choose to change the Home Screen logo from Footscan to your clinic logo (recommended)
  • Select Change and upload
  • Then Save

 

Calibration

  • Calibrating your plate once a week is recommended to maintain accuracy of the pressure values. This process only takes 2 minutes, and we suggest performing calibration every Monday morning.
  • Click on Settings/Device/Calibration interval. You will be prompted to calibrate at the frequency you select.

 

Creating a Patient Record

  • Go to Database and click Add
  • Enter the patient’s data. The following information is required:
    • First Name
    • Last Name
    • Date of birth
    • Gender

TIP: Use the remarks box to write down extra information about the patient, complaints they have, general issues, etc.

 

Foot Size

  • You will see that the program offers you the option to enter the patient shoe size in EU, UK and US sizes.
  • When you start the recording, the software defaults to UK sizing. This occurs because the software and scanners are from RSscan International/Materialise of Belgium; however, you can change the default to US and the conversion from and to US sizes will be completed automatically.

 

3D Scanner Preparation

  • Before you scan your first patient, you need to perform a test scan.
  • Once you have created a patient and click the Record button, you will be taken to the 3D Scan Window.

 

  • In the lower right corner, you will see these settings. Set the scanning resolution to Normal.

 

  • After the test scan, review the image. If you see scan artifacts (see images below) or receive an Error Message, you need to assess:
  1. The shade of the patient’s skin (light or dark) that you are scanning.
    • If the skin is light, the Light Sensitivity should be LOW
    • If the skin is dark, the Light Sensitivity should be HIGH
  2. Lighting in the room where you are performing the scan.
    • Changing the position of the 3D canner may rectify the problem of scan artifacts.

 

 

 

Pressure Plate Preparation

  • Position the Footscan plate so there is sufficient room to walk to and from the plate.
  • Make sure the patient is looking straight ahead when they walk.  They should not be looking down.
  • Capture at least three recordings of each foot.
