Prefabricated and Custom Orthotics
by Foot Support Group
you are walking a mile, running a marathon or playing a leisurely game
of golf, your feet, knees and hips are essential parts of your equipment.
Orthotics provide biomechanical control and stabilization to prevent
over use injuries. They also optimize your performance by making each
step more efficient; less wear and tear on your bones and shoes. Many
may already have some form of orthotics or footbeds and they may be
custom made. And many may not consider orthotics important because of
the cost involved.
Foot Support has gathered together a collection of pre-fabricated orthotics
including some of Gerhard's own designs.
addition, Gerhard assisted in research and development for Chaco
Footwear and their sandal and boot footbeds.
These orthotics can be custom fitted to you at a much lower cost than
a fully custom orthotic and are helpful to many people much like custom
eye glasses versus over-the-counter readers.
There are still those who require a custom device and Gerhard continues
to make each custom orthotic by hand in his lab.
|Orthotics can improve your performance, whether it's golf, tennis,
baseball, walking or running.
