Abstract The FAST® system, Foot Assessment, Scanning and Translation, is a patented system integrating three major functions for fast customized foot insoles production into one single machine: foot assessment, 3D foot sole scanning and molding, and foot insoles manufacturing. With multiple patented designs, it provides the therapists with a convenient, accurate, complete, and speedy assistive system, which enable them to offer biomechanics-oriented foot assessment, care, and treatment services to their clients. The foot sole geometry is measured by a Sole Surface Measurement Area. With thousands of probing pins making perfect contact with the sole of the foot are displaced to form an accurate replica of the 3D surface of the sole at either natural standing or sitting position. With a user-friendly graphics interface, the app provides the following services: client data management, foot assessment and analysis with automatically generated reports, foot injury risk assessment, relevant health promotion/education information, 3D scanning and molding of the foot soles, and insole positioning for orthotics fabrication. A well prepared Choisfit insole is then carefully positioned in the Insole Fabrication Cabin in the FAST® machine and a custom-made insole will be ready in six minutes according to the 3D sole surface of the client’s corrected foot. This workshop will start with a quick review of foot biomechanics and continue with introduction of the FAST® system. Then, a real operation video will be followed for you to have a closer look and experience of the novel foot assessment and fast custom-made foot orthotics manufacturing system
