Types of modular orthotic insoles
With 20 years experience, Podiart has proven its place in the world of professional podiatry. Our handmade, high quality products help people worldwide. Children, adults, sports people and the elderly will benefit from our award-winning orthotic products. Currently our orthotics range comprises the following:
Resists for excess sweating and thicker than the following ones. Ideal for work related purposes, safety shoes, handling heavy weight. It can be placed either on polifoam (thicker) or leather (thinner) base.
Microfiber is a special covering material with antibacterial properties. It can be placed on most of the insoles instead of leather or polifoam. You can choose it for an insole for everyday use, but all sport insoles come with it as standard. It is thinner than the polifoam cover.
This is a purpose build orthotic on a polifoam base for runners. Under the microfiber cover it contains a special poron shock absorbent layer. Furthermore special elastic pads are used. The shoes are needed for order because the correction given by them must be taken in to consideration (natural shoes are preferred).
Our experts know that the individual computer-based sole examination and the custom-made modular orthotic insoles are useful for everybody, but are particularly important for sportspeople. Skiing places an extreme and unusual burden on the feet and joints. On top of this, many people who do ski have individual static foot problems. Exploiting their long years of experiences and expertise, our company’s experts have developed adaptations of individual modular orthotic insoles designed for skiing with the involvement of orthopaedists and skiers. When making orthotics for sporting activities, such as skiing, both the theory and practice of the insole design and the selection of material differ from the usual procedure targeting people with ordinary burdens on their feet. The development of sport orthotics was made possible thanks to the latest biomechanical knowledge and state-of-the-art basic materials such as Poron or Microfiber. The experts working on the project are in constant contact with skiers testing the insoles and use their feedback to further improve the orthotics to enable sportsmen to achieve ever better results without pain and injury.
The skiing insole based on your unique pressure map uses viscoelastic polyurethane to adopt the shape of the foot and absorb the forces experienced during skiing, especially turning and carving. The shape of the orthotic insole both stabilises the foot, thus making it easier to direct the skies, and relieves the longitudinal arches and the heels, lifting the front of the foot slightly and thus eliminating the well-known pain on the sole during skiing. The support of high longitudinal arches is particularly significant. Other insoles – even the molded ones – can only create a complementary shape along the whole length of the foot, but they don’t correct the existing mechanical abnormalities the skier might have.
The silver-ion moisture-absorbent cover reduces unpleasant odor due to the natural perspiration of the feet to the minimum. Adequate ventilation and the reduced perspiration also lessen the unpleasant coldness of the feet.
The orthotic insoles have the minimal thickness necessary. They can usually be put into the ski boots after removing the original insoles. A long pull-out tab aids the placement of the insole into the ski boot. It is important to start using the orthotic insoles gradually as mild discomfort may be experienced in the joints of the foot in the first few days as the orthotics begin to work. For this reason take the ski boot’s original insoles with you as well so that you may swap them back if needed.
It is best to remove the insole from the boots after use and wipe its surface with water and a little detergent, then let it dry. Should wearing the insole cause any complaint, please contact our customer service. For sportsmen and women whose feet are exposed to heavy burdens, the sole examination should be repeated and the orthotics replaced every half year.
You can select your favourite design with your custom made insoles built in (removable). This insole is built on a special thick base and covered by microfiber. The slippers are delivered with two insoles: the original and your custom made one.
Recommended from the age of 6 in case of feet pain or deformation (flat feet, wrong posture, knock-kneed or shoes wears of the wrong way).
