We humans are upright beings, walking on two legs.
Our feet deserve our attention. Only a few square centimeters carry our whole bodyweight. Through the spine our soles are creating balance of our posture step by step, day by day.
While walking the sole creates three points that carry the majority of our weight
The load of our bodyweight is transferred from the heel over the outer edge of the sole to the head of the metatarsals and toes. Especially the big toe is heavily loaded at every step.
The correct position of the feet is the basis for the natural S-shape curve of the spine, which enables us painless movement and walking. Deviation from the optimal posture and the gait pattern is caused by congenital defects, injuries… Sole deformation can be minimal, but with big consequences for active lifestyle and movement.
Foot bones, joints and muscles form three foot arches that are essential for optimal flexibility of the foot. Their imbalance causes problems: burning pain, calluses, insufficient blood supply…
It is extremely important to wear appropriate footwear (wide and comfortable)Step Medico custom made Insoles add additional value to every shoe. Their design is based on the footprint, which means that they support longitudinal and transverse arches on the places of actual irregularities.
The reason why Step Medico Insoles are different from industrially manufactured insoles, is the additional support of the transverse foot arch. Consequently metatarsal bones are lifted just enough to release the phalanges and thus the heel.
Our work is based on individual treatment and the actual adjustment of support inside the insole.
All this is possible, as Step Medico Insoles are handmade. It is necessarily to point out, that the user must feel the insoles in shoes, but there must be no pain caused by them.
Quality leather, tanned with natural tanning, on top of the Step Medico, contributes to their strength, which is essential for walking stability. Moreover the leather is very similar to our own skin and that makes the insoles airy, so there is no unnecessary moisture and prevents fungal infection. In addition to setting the bones of the foot in the correct position, the anatomic design of the Step Medico Insoles also massages the sole and thereby stimulates blood circulation and the blood flow in legs.
Back pain, lumbago, nape pain, tired, cold legs, and hip or knee problems can be relived with the use of Step Medico Insoles.
Furthermore the individual treatment and adjustment of Step Medico Insoles to each person also enables direct relief of the problems caused by calluses, corns, thumb bone and heel pain.
We intentionally do not use electronic devices. Footprint on the membrane (scale 1:1) gives us all the information needed to create the insole.
Step Medico Insoles are in The Register of Medical Devices of the Republic of Slovenia. The quality is certified; therefore they are sold as an orthopedic accessory.
