The lightweight, viscoelastic soft foam of the ErgoPad Soft allows the feet to mold the orthosis to a comfortable shape when walking. The foam also has high shape retention characteristics, which means that it will always return to its original shape without manipulation. The foot orthosis therefore provides consistently effective shock absorption, even when worn for long periods of time. The product tests confirm that after 700,000 steps, the ErgoPad Soft still exhibits significantly better cushioning properties than a conventional soft cushioning foot orthosis.
A reinforcement element is placed inside the foot orthosis to support the longitudinal arch. ErgoPad Soft therefore provides stabilization in the metatarsal area and comfortably cushions the metatarsal bone and the heel. The reinforcement element makes ErgoPad Soft thermo-formable, allowing it to be optimally adapted to the foot.
Easy to manipulate
ErgoPad Soft is conically contoured on the shoe side ex works. This makes it easier to adapt the blank to the shoe shape, simplifying the process of finishing the foot orthosis and ensuring faster customer service. A particularly practical feature is the lined and dotted structure on the underside of the foot orthosis, which serves as a guide when grinding. This ensures that the work is cost-effective and helps to achieve uniform grinding on both foot orthoses.
