Formthotics™ V20 Heater

by Foot Science International


Foot Science International entry to the US market required them to improve the usability and performance their orthotics heating machine and dramatically reduce its manufactured cost.

inFact carried out user insights with podiatrists and learned they need to use the machine out with customers in their retail environments. This resulted in requirements for a high aesthetic, simple, easy to use and low noise heater in order to improve wide adoption of the orthotics heating process.

inFact took these insights into the design of the heater and developed a new aesthetic, with improved heat-flow to reduce cycle time, implemented an electronic control system and carried out design for manufacture to hit a target manufactured cost.


The outcome is a full compliant stylish low cost orthotics heater that is being sold at a good margin into the US and other international FSI markets.
