In Brief

Getting custom-made shoe inserts is generally a lengthy process that involves a visit to the doctor or sending measurements back and forth in the mail. 3D printing startup Sols plans to change that with its first product it began selling today: orthotics that can be custom made from measurements taken with a mobile device’s camera. Sols is currently working through partners like podiatrists, chiropractors and physical therapists to provide the orthotics, though it may soon send them to customers through the mail. “We’re focused on looking at how the body moves, evolves, and creating products that work with that,” CEO Keegan Schouwenburg told me earlier this year.
