What with all the talk of 3D printed exoskeleton casts it seems like a good time to try asking this question. Where and how can I get myself 3D scanned?

I've long wanted an exoskeleton (particularly of my torso, hips, lower legs and feet) for various applications, and that 3D printed cast that's making the rounds looks ideal in many ways. (Plus I would love to be an early adopter of that cast, should I ever have another fracture.) But how do I get the 3D data of myself? I don't need any more radiation exposure and I can't have an MRI due to multiple stainless steel rods, so I guess lasers are my best option.
I'm in the New York City area, but can travel reasonable distances. Complication: paralysis. (I'd have to be held up or lie down for the scan. But I'm tiny and light.)
