RESA Wearables to install 3D-printed custom insoles manufacturing kiosks in 16 Costco Warehouse stores
RESA Wearables Inc., a 3D-printed custom insoles maker, is debuting its patent-pending custom insole manufacturing kiosks in 16 Costco Warehouse stores throughout the U.S., according to a press release.
The kiosks feature foot scanning and onsite, 3D insole printing technology. Customers can have their feet scanned, insoles designed to their exact foot shape, and a pair of medical-grade, custom insoles printed right in front of them.
"Our 3D printed insoles help people suffering from foot discomfort by effectively adjusting pressure factors to conform to different parts of the feet," RESA Wearables founder and CEO Glen Hinshaw said in the press release. "Costco customers will have medical-grade insoles, completely customized to their feet, while they shop."
RESA Wearables has partnered with high-tech suppliers to bring its insoles to market, including Milwaukee-based technology company, CTS/Mighty Touch, a provider of branded kiosk design and construction.
The kiosks were scheduled for installation last week in Santa Clara, El Camino, Azusa and Palm Desert, California. From Nov. 29 to Dec. 10, kiosks will be installed in Hillsboro, Oregon, San Antonio, Texas, The Woodlands, Texas, Township, Michigan and Mount Vernon, Virginia; and from Dec. 15-24 in St. Louis Park, Minnesota and Tacoma, Washington.
