Well-known shoe manufacturers choose Human Solutions:From children's shoes to haute couture - the 3D Foot Scanner gives you the correct foot sizes

Rickard Shah, Reno and the University of Tübingen create foot measurements using the system by Human Solutions.

Kaiserslautern, 13th November 2003 – Human Solutions GmbH from 67657 Kaiserslautern, Germany, is happy to announce further important sales of its 3D Foot Scanner. European shoe chain store company Reno commissions the University of Tübingen to utilize the system in order to gain a representative overview of children's foot sizes. Rickard Shah, Haute Couture shoe designer, chooses “the foot scanner of the specialists” for body scanning, ergonomics and simulation.

Unique concept worldwide for Haute Couture

On the 15th of September, top-class British designers Elizabeth Rickard and Binith Shah opened their new “flagship” store in London. One of the store's highlights is the Foot Scanner by Human Solutions. In just a few seconds, the measurements of customer's feet will be captured for the ladies' made-to-measure shoes with the brand name “Couture-Shoes” - a 3D laser scanner provides a PC system with 3D images. Thanks to this lightning-fast procedure and the precise data the system supplies, this British “Nobel” shoe store is now able to manufacture perfectly-fitting, customized shoes for its customers. The ladies only have to choose the shoe type, (color, material, etc.) they want.

RENO and the University of Tübingen are tackling the problem of children's feet together

Commissioned by European shoe chain store company Reno, the University of Tübingen will utilize the Human Solutions' system. In a representative survey, University employees scan children's feet, capturing their measurements. The objective of the project is to document how foot measurements are closely linked to body size, weight and body mass index. The knowledge gained from this data will enable the University to create molds for Reno shoe production that will result in optimally-fitting children's shoes. Reno sees better-fitting shoes as a powerful and long-term sales argument.
