Introducing RS Scan Foot Pressure Mapping & Phits 3D Printed Custom Cycling Insoles

We are the first cycling and triathlon specific centre for RS Scan pressure mapping and Phits 3D printed custom cycling insoles in the UK. Find out more about how we can take your bike fit to the next level with our brand new menu of bike fitting services for 2020 and join us for our Foot and Pedal Analysis launch evening!

Foot pressure mapping

Since 1998, RSscan has provided professionals in the world of sports and biomechanics with state of the art pressure measuring equipment for highly accurate gait analysis resulting in a worldwide acceptance as one of the most accurate pressure measuring systems in its field.

At Physiohaus the RSscan is used to measure your feet in a variety of cycling specific assessments aimed to determine your balance, foot stability and identify risk factors for problems with your feet and areas to improve your performance. We can use the information to help improve our understanding of your feet, how the foot may impact your performance and comfort on the bike and to guide our approach with your training and rehabilitation.

3D Printed Custom Cycling Insoles

The information provided by the foot pressure mapping assessments can be used to design a 3D printed custom insole to maximise performance and power transfer, improve foot comfort, reduce injury risk and help improve cycling biomechanics. The possibilities for customisation are vast including the location and volume of support, including forefoot support, the location and direction of stiffness and materials used in the top cover.

Insoles created from an RS Scan

The 3D printed plastic shell is the lightest available in its class but also extremely durable meaning that the insole will last far longer than an off the shelf insole. The insole can be sent back to be re-covered over the years as required and the design is saved allowing us to make exact copies if multiple pairs are required for different pairs of shoes. All insoles are also personalised with your name!


To find out more about how RS Scan foot pressure mapping and Phits 3D printed insoles could help you we are hosting a FREE evening event at the clinic to talk about and demonstrate the use of the new equipment on the 24th March 2020 at 7pm.
