A Flexible Prefab Orthotic?
A newly developed prefabricated orthotic may be flexible enough to treat a variety of conditions.
SoftPoint® Flexible Cork Orthotics can relieve pain associated with plantar fasciitis or weak or fallen arches, according to the manufacturer FLA Orthopedics. The company says the orthotic supports the foot’s arch and its high contours prevent pronation.
The SoftPoint has a cork/EVA base that is thin, lightweight and flexible, and FLA Orthopedics notes it absorbs shock and molds to the foot’s natural contours.
The company cites additional benefits such as a deep heel cup, which stabilizes the foot and cradles the heel, and a breathable fabric, which reduces shear and blisters.
