Most of us think of orthotic inserts as simple arch, heel or plantar fasciitis supports. However, they're much, much more. Orthotic Inserts are orthopedic devices made to treat plantar fasciitis or adjust abnormal foot motion; they provide foot support, stability and control.
Custom orthotic inserts are designed to increase balance, absorb shock and relieve pressure on uncomfortable or sore spots of the foot. Custom molded orthotics address an individual foots' specific needs. It is important to remember that your feet are the foundation of your entire body. How your feet perform
can affect how your entire body feels and functions. The stability and efficiency of the foot and ankle promote better foot health and overall body function.
Not Gel. Not Foam. Just Effective.®
Many of history's revolutionary products and materials were discovered by accident. In the 1932, founder J.D. Zinke manufactured custom shoes for a discriminating clientele in the same way custom footware was made in Germany: with individually contoured inserts formed to perfectly fit an individual's unique foot. They were unlike the flat insoled factory made shoes which were common at the time. This individualized approach resulted in a shoe which made its wearer feel as though they were walking on soft earth instead of hard pavement. Mr. Zinke then thought, "Why not design a custom insole which can be inserted into a standard shoe that gives its wearer this same "custom made" experience? Hence, a revolutionary discovery: not only did his researchers design and develop our heat moldable insole; his creation also turned out to be a revolutionary orthotic insole, much unlike today's common "arch support".
We bridge the gap between custom orthotics and flimsy store bought rubber, gel and foam inserts. Most mass produced inserts and inserts are fabricated from simple cellular sponge and/or foam rubber materials. These inserts may provide some shock absorption, but minimal (if any) therapeutic control and support. Our pre-molded inserts are handcrafted in the USA and can be personalized to fit any individuals' foot in just seconds by simply dipping them in hot water and custom fitting to the foot. It's that simple!The foot is held in a natural position to cradle heel, arch, instep and metatarsal joints. Our insole helps prevent heel roll, and provides better posture while providing better weight distribution. As a result, Corefit® inserts helps control abnormal foot motion, especially excessive pronation. This motion, over extended periods, can lead to the development of conditions which include Achilles tendinitis, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis (heel and arch pain), shin splints and lower back pain. Our hancrafted Orthotic Inserts are superior to inserts which are pre molded and mass produced by size only.
|Immerse our orthotic inserts in boiling water for 20 seconds (Never place inserts inside a microwave)|
|Remove from water with tongs, grasping the front of insole only. Allow to cool until comfortable to the touch. (Approximately 15-20 seconds)|
|Place the device in position beneath the foot, then using your fingers and the heel of your hand, mold the insole to the contours of the patients' foot, paying particular attention to the longitudinal and metatarsal arch areas.|
|When the insole has cooled to room temperature, it is then ready to be placed in your shoe and worn.|
|If the device becomes uncomfortable, dip only the troublesome portion in boiling water and repeat manipulation by hand.|
|When reheated, your custom insole will return to its original shape and can be remolded.|
