Foot related problems throw our whole body off balance.
Most foot pain is due to faulty alignments of the foot bones and foot shape. This can cause bunions, toe deformities, heel pain, arches and balls of the foot. You might have 'flat feet' or need arch support to give you more comfort.
Problems with our feet can lead to knee pain, varying chronic problems with our ankles, hips, lower limbs or even our lower back and our neck. Common foot problems include plantar fasciitis and heel spurs.
3D-printed Phits™ custom orthotics relieve and prevent these problems
Our revolutionary orthotics are the result of unique cutting edge foot care technology. Using the patented dynamic footscan® technology and biomechanical measurements, your foot specialist analyses your gait. We identify issues with your gait, including conditions like over pronation, metatarsalgia or high arches.
Using this dynamic analysis, your expert generates a design we create using a 3D-printer.
The result? A dynamic, 3D-printed orthotic which takes into account the shape of your foot, but also supports the different pressure zones and guides your gait in the right direction. This last feature is only possible with the patented Phits™ 3D-printed structures.
High quality materials, durable orthotics
Our insoles are made from high grade ultralight polyamide, specially selected to provide your feet with the best comfort and most functional support.
Phits™ orthotics last up to 3 times longer than traditional, over-the-counter insoles. They’re sure to out last at least some pairs of shoes.
With traditional custom, orthotics production and orthotic devices, there’s up to 80% waste of materials. For a pair of Phits™ however, material losses can be reduced up to 20% and thus reduce our ecological footprint while improving your everyday footprint.
How it works
How we design your custom-made foot orthotics
Dynamic Footscan® Gait Analysis
Before we begin, the expert will discuss your medical history, any podiatry treatments and your hobbies/activities with you. They will want to find out if you have been experiencing any problems and, if so, where it hurts, how long, what makes it hurt etc.
Using the patented dynamic Footscan® technology your foot specialist analyses your gait.
Depending on your needs, the Footscan® involves you walking, running or even squatting on a matt-like sensor called a "Force Plate".
The force plate contains 12288 sensors (arranged in a 192x64 matrix) at a scanning rate of up to 200HZ and allows us to measure gait professionally and accurately. Footscan® measures your foot biomechanics, balance, pressure spread and walking. The system creates an automated report from the orthopaedic results for you to discuss with the expert.
Once assessed, the system also has the capacity to create a custom fit orthotic tailored to the individual to help improve walking function, pain and performance should the individual require it.
Design and 3D-printing of the orthotics
From the data, our software, integrated with the Footscan® technology, creates a unique design. This design can be adapted to your specific needs or to the advice of the expert.
A 3D-printer then transforms the digital design into ultralight custom orthotics. Afterwards the orthotics get a shock-absorbing comfort layer.
Fitting the Orthotics
We fit the orthotics two weeks following your order in a one-to-one appointment, confirming the fit to your feet and shoes. Sometimes an adjustment is required and this is carried out while you wait, ensuring the foot orthoses fit is perfect.

Foot orthotics are custom made medical insoles. They are made individually for you and are a support that fits inside your shoes.
Most foot pain is as a result of faulty alignments of the foot bones and foot shape. This poor alignment can cause bunions, toe deformities, pain in the heel and arches and balls of the foot.
Foot orthotics are used to realign these foot joints and reduce the stresses on the painful over-worked joints, tendons and ligaments. Foot orthotics are carefully shaped to gently lift collapsed arches or alter the position of feet that lean in or out too far.
Without the support of Phits orthotics, it would have been impossible to recover after my surgery and most likely I wouldn't have been able to continue my running career.
