Joint venture RSPrint to offer customized dynamic 3D printed insoles
Belgian 3D printing company Materialise announced today the launch of a new joint venture with RSscan International, an expert in Plantar Pressure Measurement systems, called "RSPrint Powered by Materialise." RSPrint will create the world's first dynamic 3D printed insoles, customized to support the every move of an individual.
RSPrint will use RSscan's Footscan hardware and software for dynamic pressure measurements for the design of insoles and create advanced 3D printed insoles for individuals. These insoles take into account not only the shape of the patient's foot, but also the pressure distribution while walking and running."As a former athlete myself, I saw the the damage done when incorrect sports shoes were worn." said Jempi Wilssens, founder of RSscan International.

Step 4: The insoles are 3D printed and delivered.
