Powered by Materialise software, the US hearing aid industry moved over 90% of shell production to 3D printing within just 500 days. Since 2000, this digital transformation has helped more than 10 million people with better acoustics and a more comfortable fit.

“Take your fingers, block both your ear canals and speak, and your own voice sounds horrible. By intelligently placing acoustic vents into these housings you can reduce this effect, and that’s what we call an acoustic optimized vent, and that’s something we can do with this software.”
- Stefan Launer, Vice President Science & Technology, Sonova (as told to Reuters)

Imagine having shoes that not only fit perfectly for your feet, but even for the way you move, step and run. Phits by RS Scan is the first company in the world to directly translate gait analysis into custom, dynamic 3D-printed insoles.

“Since my injury, I am now more cautious than ever to make sure my feet are well taken care of so that I can reach my new running goals during the London Marathon. Without the support of RS Scan and the insoles, I would not have been able to recover back to this point post operation and also may not have been able to continue my career as long as I did on my injured foot!”
- Paula Radcliffe, world-record-holding long-distance runner
