Which kind of foot orthotic is useful?

We differentiate between two different kind of foot orthotic approaches:

If the objective is to achieve a relieving, pressure redistributing and supporting effect with a large comfort effect, the biomechanical approach is a proven and excellent instrument for treating foot complaints.
If, however, the joint kinematics in the gait and muscular dysfunctions or imbalances are also to be taken into account in the case of a deviating foot load, sensorimotor foot orthoses offer a good intervention lever.
With each step, the nervous system processes the targeted tendon stimuli of the sensorimotor foot orthotic and reacts by adjusting muscle tone. This allows muscles to be specifically activated or relaxed in a predictable manner. In contrast to passively supporting and bedding foot orthoses, subconscious foot muscle training takes place in the shoe, which ensures long-lasting corrective effects.

Biomechanical foot orthotics

Conventional foot orthotics rely on biomechanical correction by relieving and bedding painful feet. They distribute pressure under the sole of the foot and support passive structures, such as ligaments and bones.

Sensorimotor foot orthotics

The sensorimotor foot orthotic also stimulates the sensors of the sole of the foot. This can stimulate or relax the muscles to relieve the painful structures in a targeted manner. You have to try and feel it!
