Runners Arch Support System
Recommended – specially designed foot orthotic for runners with normal to low arches who require added arch support (control) to reduce excessive pronation.
Shell Specifications – utilizes a 4.0 mm polymer shell (posted in a neutral position) that never loses shape or memory.
Posting – extrinsic rear foot post made of (55) durameter crepe.
Top Cover – provided with a 3/16″ cellular cushioning system and a felt top surface. The cellular cushioning system has a breathable surface that allows moisture and air to pass through, providing a cool, dry surface. The cushioning material is treated with biocide additive that retards the growth of bacteria and fungus, therefore reducing foot odor. The felt top surface is in-line bonded to the cellular sponge, and cannot delaminate.
Therapeutic Benefits – the orthotic shell provides semi-rigid arch support (fascia support), promoting better foot alignment. This reduces excessive pronation, and helps prevent stress, tension and pulling on the plantar fascia. If left untreated, this motion (when the arch collapses too much and the foot rotates too far inward) can cause conditions such as plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, shin splints, metatarsalgia, bunions, tendinitis as well as knee, hip and lower back pain. The extrinsic posting helps stabilize the motion of the rear foot during each stride. The 3/16″ cellular cushioning system provides excellent shock absorption, comfort and protection, helping to maintain the fat pad on the bottom of the heel.
