Foot orthotics: support, stabilization and cushioning

The field of application for medi foot orthotics is wide-ranging and covers many indications, since foot orthotics are used for more than alleviating foot discomfort. Medical supply stores also use foot orthotics to help alleviate pain and promote mobility in coping with back problems, knee and hip complaints. Here’s an overview of the products.

Foot orthoses for a wide range of applications

Foot orthotics can stabilise, support and gently correct malpositions. They cover a broad spectrum. From children’s shoes to sports and hiking boots through to business shoes or even pumps: medi has a suitable foot orthotic model for almost every user and type of shoe.

Customised foot orthotics are made from foot orthotic blanks professionally tailored in the medical supply store to suit the user and their footwear. Specialist retailers carry out individual foot analyses for this purpose. High-quality materials (such as carbon) are used, among other things, to alleviate pes transversovalgus (flat feet) and hallux rigidus.

Study documents positive effects resulting from the use of foot orthotics

The study by the Allensbach Institute for Public Opinion Research (IfD) on behalf of eurocom e. V. confirms that users like using the foot orthotics. The effects of wearing the foot orthotics are evaluated as very positive: about 75 percent of participants report reduced pain as being particularly positive. The study also reveals that about twelve million Germans have already been using their medically prescribed foot orthotics on a regular and long-term basis.1
