WalkFit orthotics are perfect for installing in all of your shoes, or great as a gift to a friend or family member. They're available in men's sizes 6-14 and women's sizes 5-12.
These arch supports (orthotics) are shoe insoles that realign your bones, joints, tendons and muscles into a more anatomically correct and biomechanically functional position. Helps alleviate heel pain, plantar fasciitis ("heel spurs"), neuromas, arthritis, flat feet, tendonitis, general foot fatigue, knee pain and lower back pain caused by misalignment of the foot. Compare the inexpensive WalkFit orthotics to pre-molded models being sold by national chain stores for over $200. WalkFit orthotics have adjustable forefoot arch heights, which are not available on the original Phase 4 orthotics model.
WalkFit ™ orthotics come with three inserts: LOW, MED, and HIGH. The height of the inserts are written on the back of each. The LOW inserts are already inserted for you. To switch to another pair of inserts, simply bend back the top of your orthotics and lift out the inserts. Place the new inserts in position and press down all over to ensure that they are securely in place. Try out each level of inserts to see which one feels most comfortable. Once your feet have adjusted to the WalkFit arch supports, you'll experience a noticeable increase in foot support and comfort.*

The Strassburg Sock ™ Night Splint
The Strassburg Sock treats plantar fasciitis heel pain at night while you sleep in comfort. Plantar fasciitis is also commonly called "heel spur syndrome" or "heel spurs". This style of night splint is much more comfortable to wear while sleeping than traditional hard plastic back (or front) style night splints. Plus, the Strassburg Sock night splint is much less expensive than most other styles of night splints.

What are Orthotics?
Orthotics are shoe inserts that are intended
to correct an abnormal, or irregular, walking pattern. Orthotics are not
truly or solely “arch supports,” although some people use those words to
describe them, and they perhaps can best be understood with those words in
mind. They perform functions that make standing, walking, and running more
comfortable and efficient, by altering slightly the angles at which the foot
strikes a walking or running surface.
The so-called rigid orthotic device, designed
to control function, may be made of a firm material such as plastic or
carbon fiber, and is used primarily for walking or dress shoes. It is
generally fabricated from a plaster of paris mold of the individual foot.
The finished device normally extends along the sole of the heel to the ball
or toes of the foot. It is worn mostly in closed shoes with a heel height
under two inches. Because of the nature of the materials involved, very
little alteration in shoe size is necessary.
The second, or soft, orthotic device helps to
absorb shock, increase balance, and take pressure off uncomfortable or sore
spots. It is usually constructed of soft, compressible materials, and may be
molded by the action of the foot in walking or fashioned over a plaster
impression of the foot. Also worn against the sole of the foot, it usually
extends from the heel past the ball of the foot to include the toes.
The third type of orthotic device (semirigid) provides for dynamic balance of the foot while walking or participating in sports. This orthotic is not a crutch, but an aid to the athlete. Each sport has its own demand and each sport orthotic needs to be constructed appropriately with the sport and the athlete taken into consideration. This functional dynamic orthotic helps guide the foot through proper functions, allowing the muscles and tendons to perform more efficiently. The classic, semirigid orthotic is constructed of layers of soft material, reinforced with more rigid materials.
Orthotics for Children
Orthotic devices are effective in the
treatment of children with foot deformities. Most podiatric physicians
recommend that children with such deformities be placed in orthotics soon
after they start walking, to stabilize the foot. The devices can be placed
directly into a standard shoe, or an athletic shoe.
Other Types of Orthotics
Various other orthotics may be used for
multidirectional sports or edge-control sports by casting the foot within
the ski boot, ice skate boot, or inline skate boot. Combinations of
semiflexible material and soft material to accommodate painful areas are
utilized for specific problems.
