Foot Function Orthotics
Foot Function are:... an extremely lightweight self-molding orthotic that create an interface between the foot and the shoe, and as such are biomechanically neutral (consider the "foot in the sand" analogy).
Foot Function orthotics are made from a material called EVA (Ethelyne Vinyl Acetate), a good resistance to compression, excellent shock absorption to provide strength and support to your feet.
Fully heat moldable & Customisable
Foot Function orthotics often require special mofications by your clinician to help with specific biomechanical problems or injuries. Orthotic additions are suitable for use with Foot Function.
Adjustment period: Foot Function orthotics may take time to adjust to your feet. Your podiatrist will provide you with guidelines for wearing this device. The orthotic can be cleaned with warm soapy water, and keep away from intense heat when drying to ensure they maintain their shape.

Foot Function Key Features
Sagittal Drop/1st Ray
The first metatarsophalangeal joint is an important component of the normal function of the foot during gait. Factors that restrict motion include conditions such as Hallux Rigidus and Hallux Abducto Valgus. The sagittal drop is designed to allow the 1st MTPJ to increase ground reaction forces during the mid stance phase of gait. This facilitates dorsiflexion of the first Ray, which enables the 3 auto-support mechanisms to function (windlass mechanism, calcaneo-cubiod and locked wedge effect). Thus creating power for forward motion.
The calcaneo-cuboid arch of the insole supports the concavoconvex joint. This feature provides foot stability to enhance high and low gear leverage, which pre-tightens the plantar apeonerosis, and locks the joint in order to encourage weight flow to the 1st. This provides stability to the lateral whic hallows the Hallux to become stable for propulsion.
Rearfoot Skive Control
The undernerath skive helps with the control of pronation. It has been designed to facilitate the easy addition of varus or valgus postings/wedgings.
Medial Arch Support
This provides support to the medial longitudinal and transverse arches, which enhance comfort levels through the gait cycle.
Concave Heel Cup
The heel cup has been ground to provide stability, support and balance, while enhancing fit.
Different densities for different needs and types of clients
Is a durable and prevents the so-called "bottoming-out" effect. It is easily molding to the foot for a custom fit. It is also breathable and washable.
Foot Function is competitively priced
The toe section of the orthotic can be trimmed to size.
