For most women, wearing high heels is a must. But although they look good, there is no denying the pain they can cause. Now, researchers have created a 3D scanner that shows exactly why high heels cause so much pain, and what damage they can cause to feet and ankles.
A research team at the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital (RNOH) is using the new 3D scanner – developed byCurveBeam – which they say is set to transform how foot and ankle problems are diagnosed.
Using similar radiation levels to conventional scanners, the device works by scanning both feet of a patient in under 60 seconds while they are standing in a “weight-bearing position” in or out of shoes.
