Frequently asked questions
Scientifically proven and validated
Since the launch of footscan, we have actively participated in over 3,000 scientific studies, research papers, scientific articles, and books, allowing us to expand our knowledge in the field of biomechanics. Our insights from internal and external research enable us to create innovative tools for use in different areas, from applied biomechanics to computational science.
“With footscan v9, I can collect the information of one person in less than three minutes. Now, we can collect data from up to 60 recruits in two-and-a-half to three hours on a regular basis. I wouldn't have managed a fraction of that with the old system.”
