Voxelcare announces exclusive UK distribution partnership with Algeos
Algeos, a supplier to the NHS and orthotic and prosthetic markets, has announced that it is now the exclusive distributor for Voxelcare in the UK and Ireland.
Voxelcare is a software and hardware engineering company with 18 years’ experience in the development of industrial applications, ranging from special purpose CAD/CAM systems for shoe lasts and custom orthotics, contact and non-contact 3D and 2D scanning devices, industrial vision and CNC systems.
For the last nine years, Voxelcare has specialised in online CAD/CAM technology. Its online scanning, designing and manufacturing solutions for the provision of custom foot orthotics are used by many people worldwide.
The online Voxelcare insole CAD design software, which Algeos is now the exclusive distributor for, is used to design any type of foot orthotic.
Marc Cameron, Product Director for Algeos, said: “Algeos has been in the CAD Orthotic market for over 15 years and been at the forefront of innovation in this area.
“Advancements in technology and finding the right companies to work with is critical to our success, and we feel Voxelcare is the perfect partner to help us and our customers lead in this space.”
As a response to industry needs, Voxelcare developed an integrated system based on measurement, design, production and marketing, which focuses on portability, ease of use and fully automated production.
Being an online system, data is accessible at any time, from everywhere in the world, allowing for more efficient collaboration, flexible workflow and less software problems, designed to save clinicians time and money.
Voxelcare’s Simon McClements commented: “With much of our focus previously in the rest of Europe we have recently been looking for a UK company to partner with to supply and deliver our CAD/CAM products.
“With the reputation and networking capabilities of Algeos, it made sense to work together to achieve a common goal – efficient and affordable online solutions to all businesses wanting to provide foot orthotics.”
The Voxelcare system was recently previewed at the 2018 College of Podiatry Conference in Bournemouth, which the company says was well received by orthotists and podiatrists.
Algeos has said it looks forward to working with Voxelcare and having a successful relationship with such a highly respected global business.
