The T-Soles Story
Being insole users ourselves, we experienced years of discomfort because of mal fitting or ineffective shoe insoles to serve our foot problems. The insole market is traditional and non-innovative, designing insoles by looking at the external foot anatomy only. Therefore, we came up with a solution.
“The mission of T‐Soles is the development and commercialization of an integrated combination of devices (equipment hardware and software) to 3D-scan human feet inside shoes or other feet coverings in order to 3D-print insoles, which are personalized and specific for shoes or other feet coverings.”
How do we bring this mission into reality?
We have the patent
We are developing the software
With a wide international network of experts
With market and technical knowledge
By building on our entrepreneurial experience
A great opportunity!
With a number of at least 35.000 podiatrist practices worldwide, our market opportunity is enormous. We will sell our T-Soles systems to podiatrists, consisting of a 3D-CT-scanner and 3D-printer. And recurring revenue will be gained through a software license fee per printed pair of insoles, sales of print materials and a maintenance fee for the hardware. At the moment we are already selling our T-Scan Services to the patients of orthopedists.
The T-Soles Team
We are academically educated in technical and medical fields. With decades of experience in entrepreneurship and business development in the medical sector, we gained an international network of medical professionals and medical devices specialists. And as we work with branch organizations in multiple countries, we receive feedback and raise interest in T‐Soles on an international level.
