SORBOTHANE HEEL PADS
WHAT ARE SORBOTHANE HEEL PADS USED FOR?
Sorbothane Heel Pads are ideal for supporting heels which collapse during gait.
The pads absorb the jarring impact of shock when landing on the pavement and prevent the the shock from travelling up the leg, which can often cause knee and pelvis pain.
The heel pads easily fit into any shoe and the different sizes available ensure that the pads can be used safely with any size feet.
The gripping surface of the insole ensures that the insole fits in the shoe without slipping.
The comfortable and easy to use insoles can be used when exercising and playing sport, in particular the insoles are particularly effective at preventing tendonitis caused by the heel collapsing when running.
The insoles can also ease fatigue and discomfort after long periods of standing or walking.
This support the muscles and joints however they can also be used to immobilise the movement of the heel in the shoe, which can prevent blisters associated with repeated rubbing against the heel.
Sorbothane Heel Pads are convenient and lightweight, meaning that they can be used during strenuous exercise without weighing the foot down, which may cause additional fatigue.
