Sole Supports custom orthotics are a unique design in orthotic engineering. Unlike many other orthotics, Sole Supports support the foot and arch throughout the entire gait cycle. The average orthotic provides support for only 10-20% of the time. This fact can be observed through a test called the Fowler test as explained below:
- Hold the orthotic against the arch
- Roll the foot forward up onto the toes (toe off position in walking)
Sole Supports orthotics will remain in contact with your arch while many other brands of orthotics will show a space between the device and your foot.
Sole Supports have an inherent flexibility providing shock absorption during dynamic activity (jumping, running, etc.).
