A comprehensive digital workflow from start to finish
Combined with the footscan® software, our pressure plates and 3D scanners provide you with the best possible measuring system. Perform detailed analysis and design the most suitable orthotic for your patient with ease and confidence.
With 25 years of extensive research and experience, we mastered dynamic gait analysis and built the most accurate, robust, and durable pressure plates on the market. Our highly professional, yet cost effective, equipment is identified as a Class 1 medical device, making it a preferred solution worldwide.
Build a gait lab that fits your requirements by choosing a portable gait lab or longer pressure plate models. With their compact sensor density based on three sensors per cm2, every measuring is done swiftly while maintaining optimal quality.
Depending on your requirements, we have different solutions for 3D scanning. Generate an in-depth 3D scan of your patient’s foot up to the ankle with our high-end Tiger or iQube scanners. For a complete dynamic gait analysis, combine it with footscan pressure plates.
To provide more freedom and flexibility into your existing process, we've enabled the import of 3D scans from any scanner into our software.
Analyze and Design
Once you’ve done the measurement, the next step is to analyze the data. Footscan 9 software helps you translate the dynamic gait data into a 3D orthotic design through flexible platform management.
- The user-friendly interface provides 3D visualizations of static, balance, and dynamic analyses. It points our clinically relevant pressure characteristics, allowing side-by-side comparison with the orthotic design. This elaborate visualization enables you to share insights with your patient and explain diagnosis and treatment better.
- Backed by scientific algorithms, the footscan intuitive design wizard provides foot corrections and helps you construct suitable custom orthotics. Easily adapt the recommendations based on your insights and anamnesis.
- Added to a wide range of analytical functions, like automatic zone editing and the evidence-based risk analysis feature, you can now import 3D scans directly into the software.
3D-printed custom orthotics
Now it’s time to order insoles designed specifically for your patient. With a single click, the footscan software sends a notification directly to our 3D printing production sites.
3D printing allows for a comfortable, lightweight orthotic design that is impossible to achieve using traditional manufacturing methods. Attain unique support of the foot roll-off by controlling the local stiffness in different areas of the orthotic design.
Materialise Phits Suite combines dynamic pressure measurement, 3D scanning, visualization, and printing in one toolkit, meaning you can manage each step digitally — from analysis to production. But its benefits don’t end with the manufacturing phase. By keeping the data of every patient consolidated, you can easily replicate the order to save your and your patient’s time.
