BOSTON Schering-Plough Health Care Products and Tekscan on Thursday announced their partnership to develop a revolutionary new kiosk designed to assess a customer’s feet and recommend the optimal Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotic.
The consumer steps up to the kiosk and onto the sensing platform and, within seconds, receives a Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotic recommendation based on his or her foot pressure pattern, arch type and foot length. The orthotic, designed with special cushioning and support layers, offloads high-pressure areas with support and comfort in mind.
The Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotics system uses the patented science of Tekscan's pressure-sensing technology along with sophisticated algorithms to recommend a perfect fit.
Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotic Kiosks can be found in Meijer, Kroger, CVS, Walmart and Walgreens retail stores in select markets, with further expansion planned.
