These BioSole-Gel Orthotics are self-forming with Polyurethane Foam andViscoelastic Gel to dynamically shape to the foot. The BioSole is a3/16" orthotic, designed for shoes with removable inserts or shoes withextra room.
A bladder construction, filled with polyurethane foam and viscoelasticgel, shapes dynamically to the contours of the foot without bottomingout.
Special design for heel pain relief.
A deep contoured heel-seat, padded with gel, along with a specialrecess under the heel alleviate the pressure on the calcaneus andprotects the heel against impacts.
A variety of posts can be easily attached to the bottom of the orthotic to fine tune the alignment of the foot on site.
Orthofeet offers a unique Interactive Posting Technique, which providesthe best control of foot function. The basic concept of this techniqueis that a variety of pre shaped extrinsic posts can be added to thebottom of the orthotic to align the foot in a desired position (i.e.:“Neutral Position”). The foot function is then checked, while thepatient is walking with the orthotic. This allows you to fine tune thealignment of the foot in a trial and error process, based on both yourassessment and the patient's feedback.
The posts are available in 3, 4 and 5 degrees, and comprise a strongpressure-sensitive adhesive for easy application. They come in twodifferent forms: Posting Strips and Rear Foot Posts. The Posting Stripsare 3" wide and 17" long. Any type of posting, such as rear foot,forefoot, medial or lateral can be trimmed from the strip and easilyattached to the appropriate location on the bottom of the orthotic. TheRear Foot Posts are pre-cut to fit the shape of the heel portion of theorthotic and do not require trimming. They are specially designed tofacilitate the application of the commonly used rear foot Varus posts.
