Introducing the revolutionary RS Footscan, a gait analysis and measuring machine that provides accurate data about your running and walking patterns.   

We are excited and privileged to be able to bring the RS Footscan to Colchester and our new Reflex-18 Sports Injury Hub so we can improve foot comfort and reduce pain for our clients. 

This incredible pressure plate is the most precise machine of its kind and when you know it is used by sports brand giant Nike to design trainers and footwear for their elite athletes, such as Mo Farah and Paula Radcliffe, you know it’s going to be the best!

And now, the RS Footscan is here in Colchester, at the Reflex-18 Sports Injury Hub.

When you come to gait analysis appointment at Reflex-18 Sports Injury Hub in Colchester, we will perform a full assessment, tailored specifically to your needs. Then, using the RS Footscan technology, we will take some scans of your feet while you are standing still and either walking or running. 

This will give us instant data along with graphical representations, so that we can talk you through exactly how your foot moves and what this means to your risk of injury. 

If necessary, we can then design custom orthotics for you, based on the data we collect. These insole designs are then sent to the podiatrists at orthotic experts Phits, based in Belgium, who will check the design and produce a 3D printed orthotic, for whatever shoe you want to use it in. 

Within two weeks, you will return to Reflex-18 Sports Injury Hub to have the insole fitted. You are then good to go, knowing you have exactly the right insoles to support your feet.

Phits orthotics really are an amazing product and can solve so many of the issues that many people face when using other orthotic insoles. The benefits of using the accurate analysis of the RS Footscan means that we get a lot of detailed information from your gait and will often see that one foot is different to the other.

This basically means that when it comes to buying trainers, what works with one foot may not work on the other and could possible have an overall detrimental effect.

We have also found that when looking at a foot, either while you are still or moving, it is not always the most accurate way of determining the problems. The RS Footscan at Reflex-18 Sports Injury Hub will show movements and patterns that are not identified through video analysis or simple judgment by eye.

It can also be a major headache trying to even find insoles that fit in certain types of footwear, such as cycling shoes, football boots and skiing boots. Phits orthotics solves this problem simply and easily, giving you an insole that works for you and your shoes!
