QUANT-U, a pilot footwear customisation project by Innovation Lab ECCO (ILE). Three core technologies produce 3D printed midsoles quantified by you. Experience a new paradigm in comfort.
Visit W-21 Amsterdam to experience QUANT-U. Launching April 2018.
A combination of scan and sensor data builds a unique digital footprint. In only 30 seconds, 3D scanners determine your orthotic fit. Wearable sensors build an accurate representation of how you move in your environment. Get to know the quantified you.
Bio-mechanical data is interpreted to create a custom midsole. Your configuration is created using machine learning and structural simulations. The result is an augmented pattern, quantified by you.
A midsole is the functional heart of the shoe. It plays a key role in the performance and comfort of your footwear. Two years of research has proven that replacing the standard PU midsoles with 3D printed medical grade silicone can tune it's inherent properties; viscoelasticity, durability and temperature stability. Within a few hours, your customised midsoles will be materialised for selected ECCO shoes.
