Foot disorders

A foot disorder or gait dysfunction can lead to pain in other parts of the body, such as the back, pelvis, hips or knees.

A footbed can help reduce your pain.

Footbeds/insoles are shoe inserts that are individually made or adapted to the foot. Footbeds combined with the correct shoes, can correct and unload malalignments, relieve painful areas and make sure to distribute the load evenly under the sole of the foot.

SHOES & FOOTBED

Shoe inserts that are individually adapted to the foot are called a footbed. Often the footbed is used together with special shoes. Insoles are ready made inserts, that are adapted to your needs.

The purpose of footbeds is to correct malalignment, relieve sore areas or distribute the load evenly under the sole of the foot.

Sore areas are not only limited to the feet. Pain in the back, pelvis, hips and knees may also be related to foot disorders or defects in walking function. In these cases, a footbed can alleviate pain and a help with a better everyday life.

The footbed is made after a footprint and a plaster cast or a scanning of the foot . For the footbed to function optimally, good and proper shoes are also required.

On average, each of us will go a distance equivalent to four laps around the earth during our lifetime, and for each step the foot is loaded by up to twice the body weight. Therefore it is important to take care of your feet!

If you are in pain and want to look at the possibility of a footbed or special shoes you are welcome to a consultation with us. We have extensive experience in the production and adaptation of inserts and shoes. Based on your specific needs, we find the type that is best for you.

Expertise

Our orthopaedic engineers are concerned with the interaction between the foot, the insole (footbed) and the shoe. They have extensive knowledge of the anatomy and biomechanics of the foot and specialize in selecting or creating the best insoles and shoes for your needs. This ensures that you get the optimal effect, whether you need help with a foot ulcer or a solution that takes away the pain in your heel when playing football.

To make a footbed, we first need to make a model of your foot. This can be done using a scanner, plaster or foam impression. The insole is made from this individual model. It is possible to use the same model to make several copies. "Insoles" are prefabricated soles that are customized from a footprint.

For those who need wound relief or unloading, we also have customi made medical shoes. Contact us and we will be happy to assist you!
