Thanks to an exclusive offer through WebPT's e-commerce platform — the WebPT Marketplace — WebPT members can access SOLS' innovative technology at a discounted offer, enabling them to create custom orthotics based on patients' electronic foot scans.
Heidi Jannenga, WebPT Cofounder and COO, is thrilled about WebPT's partnership with SOLS, especially because it has allowed her a rare opportunity to collaborate with another female tech leader. "SOLS is revolutionizing the foot orthotics industry, and WebPT prides itself in developing technology that has the potential to disrupt the status quo in health care," Jannenga said. "That's why I'm excited to help introduce this innovative company to the physical therapy industry. I'm also personally proud to work with another trailblazing woman executive."
Kegan Schouwenburg, SOLS Founder and CEO, shares Jannenga's sentiment, saying, "WebPT and SOLS are paving the way and giving rehab professionals nationwide the exciting opportunity to integrate orthotics into their core practices. We believe this partnership allows rehab professionals to expand their treatment capabilities to a more holistic approach. This is an important step towards enabling people everywhere to gain access to quality custom orthotics that allow them to live a pain-free life."
WebPT is the only electronic medical record (EMR) system that includes an ecommerce platform within its application. WebPT members who use the Marketplace are able to receive unprecedented group discounts — on average, 25 percent off wholesale prices — on a wide selection of physical therapy products. The Marketplace also provides shoppers with a fast and secure checkout process thanks to its PCl/DSS compliant interface.
Physical therapists in the SOLS network receive an iPad with a builtin app that gives them the power to effortlessly capture thousands of data points with six images. This allows physical therapists to order SOLS orthotics that are totally customized to each patient's foot morphology and lifestyle. SOLS then creates 3D prints of the orthotics using NASAgrade nylon and ships them directly to the provider's office within seven days. Engineered to correct body alignment, SOLS orthotics can fit into several different types of shoes, ranging from dress shoes to sneakers.
