Sharp Shape AOMS-Related Products
Sharp Shape provides a self-sufficient, automated orthotic production and fabrication system, called AOMS (Automated Orthotic Manufacturing System). We design and make 3D scanners and CAD/CAM orthotic software packages. We also provide system integration and training services. Although we do not carry CNC machines and 3D printers, we treat them as ‘off-the-shelf’ products and they can be purchased from customers’ territories with our consultation. Our system capabilities can be found in this document: AOMS Capacity. A complete product and service line of orthotic automation has been formed during the past twenty three years. They are listed in the following.
AOMS TOT (New):
a mobile, handheld foot scanner and orthotic manufacturing solution package, just out of beta testing. For information regarding this wireless iPad foot scanner and the orthotic production system, please visit the AOMS TOT information page. If you want to set up / install the iPad foot scanner and the AOMS TOT app, please visit the system requirements, setup and tutorial page.
AOMS TOT MILL (New) -newly developed orthotic manufacturing process:
AOMS TOT MILL is a new automated orthotic manufacturing process. It emphasizes on simplicity with latest new technologies. Click the AOMS TOT MILL info page for details.
AOMS Mold System -foot molds milled/carved from wood boards:
AOMS Mold System is the most popular system because its versatilities and easiness to learn and to operate. All kinds of materials, like polypropylene, polyethylene, graphite, cork, etc. can be used with the milled molds. You can click the following picture to view a larger version.
AOMS Orthotic-Shell System -orthotic shells milled/carved from polypropylene blocks:
AOMS Orthotic-Shell System is the most labor-saving system because it skips the process of thermo-forming plastic on top of positive mold. A minimum labor work remains after milling.
AOMS Insole System -insoles milled/carved from EVA sheets:
AOMS Insole System is getting more popular because more and more shoe businesses are getting into the custom orthoses services and more and more orthotic labs are getting into the shoe businesses. Custom shoe inserts can be made from the milling system. If you choose, three spindle heads can be mounted on the CNC router and three identical pairs of insoles can be carved at the same time. It increases productivity.
3D Laser Foot Scanner, Model USB3D
It is an electronic imaging equipment designed for podiatrists working with patient’s feet. The current podiatric/clinic 3D digital foot scanner is the third generation of the product line. It is accurate and compatible with our CAD/CAM foot orthotic system. It is part of our orthotic system solutions.
3D Laser Cast Scanner, Model USBLSX
It is an electronic imaging equipment designed for the labs or podiatry groups who normally work with patient's negative foot casts. Impression foam can also be scanned with certain limitations. It has been proven to be accurate and reliable in many orthotic labs.
Semi-Custom and Prefab Orthotic Design Package
For use in labs and doctor’s offices, it serves as an alternative subsystem to make the devices to relieve patient's minor symptoms that are not justifying a more costly fully customized devise. It is also meant to reduce cost in orthotic production. This is a newly developed package. Please make an inquiry if you are interested.
Evolved from the above package, a matching system emerges. This system utilizes our scanners and the customer’s existing orthotic library to produce matches using a software package developed by us. It saves the expenses on the mill and time in cast corrections. We have installed one such as system. Please contact us for details.
CAD (Computer Aided Design) Program in AOMS
Using this program, the user is able to apply biomechanical corrections and controls to the scanned casts according to doctor's prescriptions. From a generic correction base, we customize our program to the correction types preferred. It is the most widely used software in all orthotic systems.
CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) Program in AOMS
Using this program, the user is able to schedule the placement of devices on the mill and generate a milling toolpath file. We customize our program to almost any CNC mills or routers that you choose for your system. It has been adapted to many types of orthotic mills and routers.
Installation and Training
Installation and training are provided at customer's location. A setup trip is used to integrate the whole system and to provide adequate training for the operator(s). If you choose a simple solution, such as a hub system, the setup trip may be waived. We have set up many custom foot wood-mold production systems, custom polypropylene orthotic shell production systems, and custom EVA insole manufacturing systems. After 10 years since the business establishment in 1993, AOMS became the most popular and advanced orthotic fabrication system.
Provided for choosing the market products, such as CNC mills/routers, computers, and networks. We also help you on your own research and development.
