OreTek RadScan AIO (All-In-One) is a complete cadcam solution for the manufacture of foot orthoses, soft EVA devices, and positives. Unlike previous versions, this unit can, in under a minute, switch between cast scanning and foot scanning. This unit comes with a built-in computer, 20" monitor, wireless keyboard, and all modular components necessary to scan casts and feet.
There are 3 basic levels of operations, each more advanced than the previous, allowing the work to be transmitted to participating labs for completion.
1) Scan and transmit
2) Scan and Design, transmit
3) Scheduling of multiple devices (4 1/2 pairs typical) onto a work-piece, transmit
Unit cost: $1300.00USD
Wireless/firewall option: $40.00
Office footprint: 177 sq in (10.46"x17") as a foot scanner, 300 sq in (30"x10")as a cast scanner.

As far as scan data goes, simply assigning the basic anatomical reference points, is all that's required for processing into an orthotic. It's possible to prune out data with the mouse, but unnecessary. There is a natural pruning that occurs once the reference points are assigned.
OreTek is like a cookbook where you create recipes for designs. There are nearly 400 variables that define various parts of the orthotic, of which, the more common variables, which are combined to form design codes. For example, a blake inverted device would be blake##, where ## represents a specific angle, and would use blake variables, as well as longitudinal arch peak modifications to move the arch more proximal.
