TRIactive® heel

Orthopedic orthosis to combat chronic heel and ankle pain with strain-adapted zones

TRIactive heel relieves your heel and supports your foot arches in case of flat feet, splay feet and skew feet. As a result, it provides relief of strain-related pain and negative consequences. The arrangement of the functional elements encourages healthy walking and softly cushions the heel.

  • Relief for chronic heel and ankle pain
  • Supports the foot arches during sports and leisure activities
  • Jigsaw puzzle serrations for strain-specific functional zones ensure smooth transitions
     

How to beat chronic heel and ankle pain

Heel and ankle pain takes us by surprise very suddenly, usually when we get up in the morning. It is normally those who frequently walk on hard ground or overstrain their feet when exercising, for example, who suffer from this uncomfortable stabbing heel pain. The TRIactive heel foot orthosis cushions the heel particularly softly in the event of pain or heel spurs. Its special active principle is based on PowerWave technology: materials with varying levels of firmness fit together like jigsaw puzzle pieces, creating irritation-free transitions that are not noticeable during use.

Specialist advice

TRIactive heel is only available from medical retailers. The orthotist will measure your feet and then use the orthotic blank to prepare a customized foot orthosis specially for you. It is used for running, indoor sports and ball sports, walking, hiking and golf as well as for people who spend long periods standing in their everyday lives.

Functional Zones

The functional zones in detail

Cushioning – the soft component
Sensitive areas of the feet are cushioned –to protect them

Support – the medium-firm component
The arch of the foot is supported and relieved –for an upright posture

Guidance – the firm component
The heel is guided as the movement starts –thus actively initiating your steps

Vertical configuration

An effect that makes a difference

The vertical configuration allows the material propertiesdescribed above to act on specific predefined areas.This enables the different functional zones to delivertheir biomechanical effect in precisely the right area.

Intellogent connection

An intelligent connection

The foot is highly functional. 28 bones and 33 joints worktogether to distribute weight in the best possible way – sothere is no room for annoying edges! The wave-shaped serrationsbetween the materials ensure that crossover pointsare edge-free – your foot doesn`t feel irritated!

Properties

  • Premium soft foam foot orthosis made from high-quality EVA with pad
  • With specific guidance, support and cushioning zones arranged (vertically) adjacent to one another
  • Patented, three-dimensional, non-irritant connections between the material zones – PowerWave Technology

Durability

  • fundamentally depends on the load
  • We recommend that the functional properties should be checked after a maximum of 6 months

Cleaning instructions

  • Wipe the surfaces using a mild cleanser and a sponge (except leather top covers)
  • Not machine-washable
  • Do not expose to direct heat (heater, direct sunlight)

Modification instructions - Specially for medical retailers

  • Must be ground (lateral foot orthosis shape and foot orthosis strength)! – easy to grind (grinding belt, grain 40-100, polishing brush on the blade disk)
  • Good for bonding (standard workshop adhesives)
  • Partial thermoplastic molding possible (hot air blower, up to 120°C (248°F), 20-30 sec.)
  • A top cover, e.g. microfiber, is recommended for the mechanical protection of the EVA material
