Dynamic Pressure Measurements & Orthotic Insoles: Step into the practice of the future

At Phits, we believe that revolutionary ideas have the potential to change lives. Our journey began over thirty years ago when visionaries Fried Vancraen, founder and CEO of Materialise, and elite athlete and engineer Jempi Wilssens, founder of RSscan, embarked on separate paths to transform the world of 3D printing and orthotics.

Jempi's innovation journey started with a humble copier in 1980 that evolved into the groundbreaking footscan in 1984. This integrated gait analysis solution combined a dynamic pressure plate with advanced software, providing quantifiable measurements, dynamic analysis, 3D visualizations, and more. Jempi's expertise expanded after working with Adidas, leading him to establish Runners’ Lab, a pioneer in personalized shoe design.

Not stopping at Runners’ Lab, Jempi founded RSscan International, an industry frontrunner with over 5,000 footscan users globally. RSscan introduced cutting-edge footscan software and pressure measurement systems for clinical, retail, and scientific applications.

In 2014, the visionary minds of Materialise and RSscan converged to launch RSPrint and Phits Insoles, the world’s first dynamic 3D-printed insoles. This collaboration aimed to revolutionize orthotics production, combining accurate analysis, design, automation, and 3D printing at scale.

In 2020, Materialise acquired RSscan's dynamic foot measurement technology and Phits Insole product line, forming Materialise Motion. This business line strives to advance research and development, offering a comprehensive digital toolkit—the Materialise Phits Suite.
