Orthopedical insoles

The foot - more important than many people think

The foot works as a shock absorber and is the base of the kinetic chain of motion. Foot defects are compensated higher up in the body and can cause grave effects. The sensory inflow into the postural musculature is also located in the foot.

Problems - Examples of syndromes that can occur

1. Plantarfaschiit
2. Tibiae periostit (periostitis)
3. Achillestendinit (inflammation in the achilles' tendon)
4. Tarsal tunnel syndrome
5. Patello-femural pain
6. Runner’s knee
7. Piriformis syndrome
8. Trochanterit (Hip/Groin problems)
9. Loin problems


SIDAS Podiatech offers ready-to-wear, as well as individually modelled insoles

Ready-to-wear insoles
A product that gives the feet support in a neutral position. The insole has an patented arch-flex-control that and adapts to every unique foot because of its biomechanical function and form. This means that wearing the ready-to-wear soles is often enough to correct an incorrect position of the foot. The insoles are ready to be sold directly to the customer.

Individually modelled insoles
The modeling is done in a standing, strained position to give you the possibility to control and correct different positions of the joints in the feet, knees and hips. As we know, the feet affect upper joints/muscles in the kinetical moving pattern in a strained position. This gives an individually modelled insole, modelled in a strained position (when we need it the most).

Advantages of individual insoles
• Make a vertical, dynamic movement possible (because they reduce the vertical strain)
• Give a stabilizing lateral effect (since they reduce the medial force)
• Make it possible to correct problems at the fore foot
• Are produced from a thin and light material and take up little space inside the shoe
• Are made from a material that is easy to model
• Provide a method that makes it possible to help people with unusual foot defects
• Knowledge about how incorrect positions of the foot affect the kinetical chain of movement and what effect this has on our patients
• The dynamic and stabilizing qualities of the insoles material

Important material qualities of the insoles of SIDAS Podiatechs

Dynamics - Reduces the vertical strain on the foot. Reduces the risk of compressions in the joints of the feet, knees and hips (compared to traditional insoles).

Stability - Gives a stabile centre support, to keep talus and naviculare in their correct position.Reduces the strain in the centre part of the foot.

The movements - Keep the joints of the feet from excessive movement. Corrects the movement without force.
