Answer

Insoles are useful for corns, callus, plantar fasciitis, flat feet, pain under the feet (Heel Pain, Ankle pain, forefoot pain) , Diabetic ulcers, neuropathy, varicose veins, height corrections etc. Insoles are also helpful in sports and athletics as well.

Answer

The insole is the inside part of the shoe that runs underneath and supports the bottom of the foot. Insoles are also referred to as foot beds and inner soles. They are usually easily removable. People often replace the original insoles with a pair of specialty insoles they've purchased separately for a more comfortable and supportive fit. These are called aftermarket insoles
Specialty insoles can be added to make the shoe more comfortable, control odor and moisture, and absorb shock. For health-related reasons orthotic insoles can give better position and support to the foot.

Answer

Total contact insole will have 100% contact with the plantar surface (Bottom Surface) of the feet. This will help in offloading the pressure from the painful areas, as the contact area is increased. Pressure is defined as the force per unit area. As the contact area increases, the pressure decreases. Also, certain corrections are done in insoles (like scooping) to avoid contact of the painful areas with the Insoles, thereby achieving immediate pain relief.

Answer

Flat feet is a condition in which the arch on the foot is missing. The entire Plantar surface (Bottom surface of feet) comes in contact with the ground and the feet does not have the right shock absorption capability. This can lead to painful condition called pronation in which the foot twists inside. Physical correction of flat feet is possible with the help of arch support. In children, there is possibility of formation of arch, when insoles are used correctly.

Answer

Flat feet in children can be corrected in flexible condition of flat feet. In rigid flat feet, corrections may not be possible; only maintenance is possible.

Answer

Flat feet may lead to painful conditions, if not corrected early.

Answer

An ideal footwear is one that has a wide toe box, is light weight, is airy and has a soft insole. Also, it should have a back heel counter for proper support. It should be perfectly fitting the feet, and should be neither too tight nor too loose. Lace or Velcro is recommended for fastening.

Answer

Apart from the above, it should have a soft lining inside on the contact surfaces ( to avoid friction through rubbing), should have no sharp edges or corners and should fully cover the foot.

Answer

Soft cushioned Insoles when worn at the onset of diabetes will improve blood circulation at the extremities and will prevent neuropathy to an extent. In the case of foot ulcers, custom made insoles help to prevent pressure at the infected sites and improve the healing rate. In most developed countries, doctors recommend an ideal diabetic footwear with insoles upon detecting diabetes.

Answer

Customization means that the insole is uniquely made for an individual based on his foot condition and requirements. Total contact insoles are made in such a way that every portion of the bottom surface (Plantar Fascia) of the feet comes in contact with the Insole. The basic principle is that as the contact area increases, the pressure is relieved/ reduced. Also, contact of the painful areas can be avoided by giving scooping in the area, so that there is no pressure coming to that area and pain is immediately relieved.

Answer

Insoles are recommended to relieve pain and offer relief and support for certain foot conditions. For complicated cases, doctor (Podiatry Specialists) visits are recommended. Insoles will however augment the healing process.

Answer

Insoles help to dampen the ground reaction and reduce the impact during heel strike, while walking. As a result, people undergoing hip/ knee surgeries can come back to normal life quickly, if they use insoles during the recuperating period.

Answer

The cost of Insoles ranges from INR 300.00 (Soft standard EVA) to INR 3900.00 (multilayer German EVA). A regular customized Indian insole costs Rs.1800 and a German Insole costs Rs.2800. For the first time, there would be an extra Insole pre-processing charge (3D Foot scanning /Foot analysis & diagnosis/ Designing) of Rs.500 also. This would not be applicable for additional orders.

Answer

Yes, insoles can be used for increasing ground reaction, to give support and improve performance in Athletics & sports. It will also give an edge against competitors, as a split second mileage can make the difference between a win or a loss.
