If you opt to use Sunshine Coast Orthotics and Podiatry (SCOAP) for your foot care, you can expect to enjoy the very latest technology and innovations in podiatry. We regularly update the practice to ensure patients receive the very best care.

One of the more recent additions is the Paromed laser foot scanner. The scanner provides a highly accurate profile of the foot and ankle, enabling us to design and create orthotics that are comfortable and effective.

Here at Sunshine Coast Orthotics & Podiatry, it’s important that we know our way around your foot. Having a heavily experienced and trained team means we are able to provide you with the best care possible.

By using the best technology available to us, we can use the precision and accuracy of a laser scanner to work out the shape and structure of your foot to the nearest millimetre, freeing you from any uncertainty around your feet.

The scanning process is fast, clean and non-invasive. Patients will need to have the affected foot in contact with the scanner. Scans can be taken whilst patients are non-weight bearing, partially weight bearing or fully weight bearing. Once the foot is in the correct position (your podiatrist will assist if necessary to ensure this is achieved), the scan can be quickly completed.

Patients don’t need to make any special preparations for a scan, which is usually completed as part of a routine appointment.

A Paromed Laser Foot Scan


Highly accurate results

  • The scan uses sophisticated infrared light technology to capture a 3-D picture of your foot. Once completed, the 3-D image of the foot is accurate to 0.1mm. It is rare that a plaster cast (the traditional method of acquiring an impression of the foot so that a suitable orthotic device can be created) achieves this level of accuracy. Using the scanner improves the chances that the orthotic aid we provide fits comfortably and performs effectively.

Clean and non-invasive

  • Patients typically report that they feel nothing during the scan process. Particularly if you’re a patient with extremely sensitive feet, who doesn’t like having them handled unless absolutely necessary, a scan is a more comfortable alternative to plaster cast creation.

Extremely fast

  • Some patients find it difficult to keep their foot in one position whilst a cast is being taken. This may be because of medical issues which make it difficult to remain still, or the difficulty in finding a comfortable position whilst the cast is made. In contrast, a Paromed scan is extremely rapid and can be positioned in several ways, depending on what’s going to be best for the patient.

An opportunity for several attempts

  • Sometimes it’s not possible for a patient to remain in the correct position whilst a scan is completed. If this situation occurs whilst a cast is being taken, the cast materials are wasted and considerable preparation is required before the casting process can be reattempted. In contrast, if the scan isn’t completed successfully, it can be repeated easily and rapidly, with no waste.


Using a laser scanner can introduce a new level of consistency and reliability into the process of orthotic modelling. By scanning your foot in three different scenarios, from when your foot is under no load to when it’s bearing your full weight, we can best capture the way that your foot functions when you walk, stand and run around on a day to day basis.

This holistic view of the way your foot works means that we can better establish solutions to make your foot work better for you. A laser foot scanner doesn’t just help to see what your foot looks like, but can clear a path to a better solution for your foot in the long run.

In most cases, a patient will require a scan when their orthotic device needs to be replaced. This may be because the foot contours have changed, additional pathology has emerged or an incremental treatment (for example to correct a deformity) needs a fresh orthotic device so that further progress can be made.

One of the worst things about orthotics used to be the reliance on plaster casts to accurately establish the shape and structure of your feet. Whilst plaster casts could be incredibly accurate, there is always a risk that an air pocket can mislead a technician around the shape of a foot, or your foot may be under pressure in one area which makes the expected shape inaccurate.

By using the best scanning systems available, and feeding the data into a modelling programme that can then build up a perfectly accurate view of your foot. Don’t mess around for hours with plaster, get it right the first time with laser scanning.
