In this paper is presented a new methodology for the diagnosis of flat feet in orthopedic application. The resulting new workflow will guarantee higher efficiency reducing costs and time. In particular an economic valuation of both workflows is performed showing the reduction of costs with the methodology presented. Through this elaborate it will be shown that today's most widely used medical technique for the diagnosis and treatment of congenital flat foot from tarsal synostosis have some weaknesses that could be optimized. To reduce weaknesses, the alternative methodology presented involves a new technology within the traditional method's workflow. In Orthopedics, as in other fields of medicine, new technologies are introduced aiming to improve the patient healthcare. These technologies allow to perform the same treatments in a simpler and faster way making them much more effective and precise. The technology introduced In Proposed methodology is the 3D Printing.
