The foot orthosis is available in various designs and, consequently, is ideally suited to the everyday needs of your feet in the workplace and fits the general dimensions of business shoes. The integral offers cushioning over a large area, ensuring a cushioned step for your foot. Pressure is relieved on the entire muskuloskeletal system. A moderate arch supports allow you to become accustomed to the foot orthosis quickly, and pressure is relieved throughout the entire body.

  • PowerWave® Technology in the cushion layer allows for a soft and secure step
  • For your professional life
  • Thanks to the various designs available, the foot orthosis suits the general dimensions of most business shoes 

PowerWave® Technology

Relieves pressure with every step

The PowerWave® Technology in the cushion layer of the foot orthosis supports the natural heel-to-toe movement of the foot. The soft materials provide maximum cushioning for your step, while the rigid materials guide and support the foot where needed. Pressure is relieved, both on the feet and on the entire musculoskeletal and locomotor system.

Designs and uses

The foot orthosis optimally meets the requirements of everyday professional life. The effect of the orthopedic foot orthosis is particularly noticeable if you regularly stand and walk on hard floors. For low cut business shoes, a specially slim design of the comfort business is available without a cushion layer. The foot orthosis can be fitted quickly and easily in these shoes, provided that they have a removable sole with a thickness of approx. 3 mm and a corresponding width. 

Only available from medical retailers

In order to ensure that you receive the best possible care, the comfort business is only available from a medical retailer – an orthotist. The orthotist will take all the necessary measurements of the foot and diagnose the status of the foot using digital measurement technology/foam imprint/ink imprint/physical examination. Following this process, the foot orthosis can then be fitted into the relevant footwear. Thanks to a foot orthosis of this kind, a standard shoe can be made into a customized shoe.

Properties

  • Synthetic orthosis with a slightly cup-shaped heel and low construction height
  • cushion layer made of EVA with PowerWave® Technology 

Construction of the foot orthosis

Construction of the foot orthosis

1) Microfiber top cover:
This top cover provides a comfortable contact layer with the foot. The presence of silver ions helps to prevent both bacteria and odors.

2) Cushion layer with PowerWave® Technology (25°/35°/45° Shore A):
This layer, made of EVA, is defined in movement-specific guidance, support and cushioning zones, which are arranged (vertically) adjacent to one another. The functional zones work biodynamically – the foot is optimally guided in each step.

3) Synthetic core:
The moderate arch supports of the synthetic core and the slightly cup-shaped heel support the foot arches and improve hindfoot stability.

4) Bottom coating:
The special grip film ensures a non-slip contact surface between the foot orthosis and the shoe.

Uses

  • Suitable for sport and leisure enthusiasts, who are wearing an orthopedic foot orthosis for the first time and who wish to prevent the risk of injury. 

Durability

  • High-quality and durable materials mean that the foot orthosis remains serviceable even after prolonged use – but this does fundamentally depend on the load.
  • We recommend that the functional properties should be checked regularly (after a maximum of 6 months) 

Cleaning instructions

  • Wipe the surfaces using a mild cleanser and a sponge (except leather top covers)
  • Not machine-washable
  • Do not expose to direct heat (heater, direct sunlight)

Modification instructions - Specially for medical retailers

  • The outline of the foot orthosis can be ground in a taper shape
  • Easy to grind (grinding belt and pumice stone, grain 80-100)
  • Partial thermoplastic molding possible (hot air blower 100°C-130°C (212-266°F), partially for approx. 20 sec.)

Tips for healthy feet

When selecting your foot orthosis, think about the area of your life in which you wish to use it. The type of foot orthosis depends on the footwear worn. The shoe and the foot orthosis must fit together!

Functional zones

The functional zones in detail

Cushioning – the soft component
Sensitive areas of the feet are cushioned –to protect them

Support – the medium-firm component
The arch of the foot is supported and relieved –for an upright posture

Guidance – the firm component
The heel is guided as the movement starts –thus actively initiating your steps

Vertical configuration

An effect that makes a difference

The vertical configuration allows the material propertiesdescribed above to act on specific predefined areas.This enables the different functional zones to delivertheir biomechanical effect in precisely the right area.

Intelligent connection

An intelligent connection

The foot is highly functional. 28 bones and 33 joints worktogether to distribute weight in the best possible way – sothere is no room for annoying edges! The wave-shaped serrationsbetween the materials ensure that crossover pointsare edge-free – your foot doesn`t feel irritated!

Indications

Main indications:

  • Flat foot/splayfoot
  • Pes valgus

Concomitant indications:

  • Mild and moderate severity of hollow foot (1)
  • Post-traumatic foot deformities (1)
  • Achilles tendon complaints (1)
  • Knee joint/back pain (1)

(1) depending on the severity of the foot, knee or back deformity

Effectiveness 

  • Moderate support for flattened foot arches or for foot arches subjected to heavy loads, relief of pressure on the joints and correction of mild misalignments of the locomotor system
  • Frequently also alleviates knee and back pain
  • Biodynamic gait pattern and cushioning over a large surface area when you take a step
