An inbuilt air flow pump that gently directs air through your shoes, under your feet and across your toes as you walk help to keep your feet dry and fresh. This unique system is another 2ft innovation. Many foot deformities are the cause of increased sweating and foot odor. This gentle flow of air assists in reducing if not eliminating sweat that can be the cause other unwanted symptoms such as Fungal growths & Tinea Pedis (Athletes foot).
The Heel Cup of a 2ft Custom Made Orthotic manages heel strike control & heel bounce key factors in a normal walking and running gait. The heel cup gently cradles your heels and redirects the downward forces of gravity in a manner that also relieves pressure on the Plantar Fascia where it connects to the Periosteum (a thin layer that covers bone) of your Calcaneus (heel bone) where heel spurs form. Heel spurs are caused by over active Osteoblasts, (bone making cells) and cause significant heel pain.
The 34 Length form of your 2ft Orthotic allows it to fit approx (95%) of all shoes. This means you will not be required to change any of your shoes to wear your custom made 2ft Orthotic.
Other form features include;
- The Orthotic form splays at the front giving support across the ball of your foot with the toe arches bridging the end of the form making for a comfortable fit and wearing experience.
- The side of the form splay outward creating a friction point between the side of your shoe which makes the form resistant to moving laterally.
The Longitudinal Arch (inside arch) of your 2ft Orthotic is designed to be customized and adjusted over time to gently reshape your foot into the form nature intended. Pads are added or removed under the soft cover to the Longitudinal arch support which reshapes & re-aligns each of your feet based on each foots particular issues. These pads ensure comfort while performing regulated change of your foots structure.
The customized metatarsal (forefoot arch) support is a key feature of your 2ft Orthotic. Your forefoot arch is a critical component of the correct function of your foot, without it you lose the spring in your step and calluses quickly form on the ball of your foot making walking very uncomfortable. The 2ft customized metatarsal (forefoot arch) will lift & re-align your forefoot arch and will make all the difference to your walking and standing well being. You will be amazed at the comfort you feel when you try one on for yourself.
The customized lateral (outside arch) support controls the outward roll (supination) of your foot as you walk. This is the third arch in the triangle of arches that form the function of your foot. This little known arch is often forgotten yet it is crucial to your walking comfort. The 2ft customized lateral support is adjusted with pads that are added or removed under the soft cover to the Lateral arch support which reshapes & re-aligns each of your feet based on each foots particular issues. These pads ensure comfort while performing regulated change of your foots structure.
Orthotic Standard Cover
The changeable lining of your 2ft Orthotic is made from EVA foam that has some outstanding properties. These include:
- vibration and impact absorptions
- weather and chemical, oil, and fuel spill / splash resistances
- thermal insulation
- resilience / buoyancy and low-water absorption
- long life / mold resistance
- and quickly recovers from compression's.
Sturdy EVA Copolymer Form
Your Orthotic form is constructed using the very best quality in plastics technology; EVA or Ethylene Vinyl Acetate is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. It's an extremely elastic material that can be sintered to form a porous material similar to rubber, yet with excellent toughness.
2ft Orthotics are so tough that it is not unusual for them to last in excess of 10 years without any maintenance. The EVA maintains is springiness throughout its functional life span giving you a consistent spring in every step you take. Learn more about EVA here
The 2ft Anti-Torsion Bar (surgical grade stainless steel) gives added structural strength to the mid section of your 2ft customised Orthotic. It reduces any unnatural twisting of the orthotic as it rolls through Pronation (inward roll) and Supination (outward roll) of your foot as you walk. This is particularly important for people who have combination (Rock & Roll) foot which is a tendency to both; Over Pronate and Over Supinate, during the walking gait.
