Exciting new developments at BalanceWorks. Business to expand high-tech offerings By GORDON DRITSCHILO STAFF WRITER High-tech custom shoes may soon be made in Rutland. The Rutland Economic Development Corp. announced Wednesday that BalanceWorks had received a $25,000 grant from the state’s Regional Economic Development Grant Program for 3-D printing and scanning equipment. REDC Executive Director Lyle Jepson said the grant requires a 1-to-1 match. “It’s doubling their money in a very productive way,” he said, adding that the expansion will initially create two new jobs. BalanceWorks, on Cleveland Avenue, makes custom orthotic shoe inserts. The simplest form are generic shoe inserts that provide added cushioning and arch support. “They’re better than what comes with the shoe, but it’s a limited better,” owner David Goodspeed said. More sophisticated inserts are made by molding them to an individual’s foot. These are popular for skiing and cycling, Good-speed said, but tend not to be flexible enough for walking or running. For an even more individualized insert, Goodspeed takes a plaster cast of a foot and then “reads” it to correct the foot’s biomechanics. “That’s what we do now, the biggest thing we do,” he said. “We are trying to make your foot function as close to a perfect foot as possible.” The new process, he said, will be a more sophisticated version of that third approach, taking a scan of the foot and using a 3-D printer to make the custom footbed. The new process will be more accurate and faster. Instead of having to let a mold sit overnight, Goodspeed said, the scan can be done in a matter of minutes. The 3-D printers are expected to eventually cut shaping time — typically three hours, Goodspeed said — into one-quarter of what it is with the current process. “I can be in Boston, take a scan of the foot and, boom, the process starts,” Good-speed said. “You don’t have to wait for me to physically get back here with the mold and hand it to you.” Goodspeed said his inserts typically cost $350 to $450. With four 3-D printers working at once, he says he hopes to achieve the sort of volume that will let him cut prices. Beyond that, his ambitions include making custom hiking boots, cowboy boots, medical shoes, sneakers and sandals. “We’re going to first make the system work like we want it to,” he said. Jepson said the program had been around for some time but REDC had not recently pursued it. “I met David Goodspeed in a creative finance workshop we held a couple months ago,” he said. “By coincidence, I then ran into Kevin Mullin (state senator for Rutland County) and he told me these options were out there. ... It’s something REDC will be taking advantage of well into the future.” Jepson said he expects to announce another grant from the program to a Rutland business next week. Jepson said the project — small-scale, high-tech manufacturing — is exactly the sort of business discussed as being part of Rutland’s future. “I think what will turn the economy around is small ventures like this and working with our current businesses to enhance their opportunities to grow,” he said. “It may be small, but if you get two or three singles, you get a run. They can’t all be home runs. We’re going to hit lots of singles.” ROBERT LAYMAN / STAFF PHOTO David Goodspeed, pedorthist at BalanceWorks in Rutland, explains how the grant the business recieved by the Rutland Economic Development Corp. will help the company move towards a 3-D printing process for foot molds.
