Who Should Use This?
This footbed is for people who are looking for a high quality mouldable orthotic and who suffer from mild to moderate pronation (flattening of the medial or inside arch of the foot) leading to pain in the medial arch or biomechanical stress leading to pain or injury in the foot, ankle, knee, hip or spine. It is very popular in sport and situations where firm arch support combined with moderate to high levels of cushioning are required. More specifically it is suitable for pain in the midfoot and medial arch associated with:
Conditions directly associated with Pronation – mild to moderate
Medial arch strain
Anterior knee pain
Low Back Pain
If you are unsure as to the cause of your pain seek medical advice re suitability of orthotics in your case
How does it work?
Helps to support and cushion the medial arch and calcaneus (heel bone) aiding normalisation of correct biomechanics in the lower limb joints and muscles. This type of device controls pronation (flattening of the arch) improving alignment in the whole leg and foot.
