Our digital scanner also utilizes non-invasive technology to “read,” analyze, and prevent chronic pain and potentially dangerous injuries. The information that is gathered by digitally scanning the feet provides the doctors of Albany Podiatry with a clear picture of the condition of the feet and ankles. The digital scanner in our office is especially helpful in the prediction of foot ulcers in diabetics by locating and defining pressure points. Digital scanners are also instrumental in reading plantar aspects in runners and enable us to customize orthotics for patients.
