Starting today, patients can get SOLS through a number of industry-leading launch partners across the country. Interested medical professionals can apply for certification through www.sols.com. A leading Los Angeles podiatrist, Dr. Wenjay Sung, DPM, comments: "SOLS has been an innovative game changer for my patient-care options."

SOLS boasts a full range of features geared towards alleviating pain and improving comfort. Customizable leather top covers give patients the ability to match their SOLS to their style. "SOLS has been able to take the orthotic scanning and prescription process from archaic and sterile to tech-savvy and fashionable. I have had many patients return to get additional pairs of SOLS after having such a positive experience and comfortable fit with the product," says Dr. Emily Splichal, DPM and human movement specialist.

Before ordering, patients and practitioners can review and update an interactive model of the product they have created and make prescription and feature changes in real-time. Patients experience a high level of engagement with the product; podiatrists enjoy a higher conversion rate at point-of-sale.

Customers can connect directly to local providers through the provider finder at www.sols.com, while doctors can use the website to access tips and tricks, training materials, and a full backend patient management system.

SOLS simplifies the prescription process with its tablet-based app, 10-minute scanning process, repeatability, and real-time visualization technology. The company aims to democratize custom mass-manufacturing by lowering the barrier to entry and giving providers everywhere access to the nascent technology.
