Orthaheel shoes have been designed to provide support and stability to the feet. Human feet are designed to walk on soft surfaces like sand and soil. When we walk and run on hard surfaces, our feet are forced to roll when brought into contact with the ground. This leads to flattening of the arche, which may later affect hip alignment and cause knee pain.
Excess awkward movement may also lead to bad alignment. This usually happens along three planes of motion â sagittal, frontal and transverse. Orthaheelâs tri-planar motion control system provides support by keeping the foot well within the range of normal motion. With sustained use of the footwear, foot function will be fully regained. This will help to reduce pains and aches in the process.
The footwear is ideal for people suffering from back pain, knee pain, heel pain or leg pain. The entire range of shoes from Orthaheel is noted for being lightweight and flexible. The tri-planar system ensures that the entire body is stable and receives essential support while walking. The technology has been recognised by the American Podiatric Medical Association.
Orthaheel has been designed by the Australian podiatrist Philip Vasyli who launched the award-winning brand in 1991. The footwear is available in over 25 countries and has helped thousands of people deal with body pain.
