Do you produce insoles for sole collapse, flat feet, high arch?

They create the arch the patient needs. They provide support. We offer special insoles that improve the quality of life for people with these problems.

Do you produce insoles for Hallux Valgus?

Hallux valgus is a deformity in which the big toe points toward the second toe. This condition is often accompanied by a bony protrusion and soft tissue pain on the inside of the head of the first toe, known as a bunion. It is the most common pathological condition affecting the toe. We offer special insoles that provide a solution to medical problems such as hallux valgus. The insoles increase the comfort and quality of life of the person.

Do you produce insoles for heel spurs?

Heel pain is one of the most common adult foot problems. The causes of the pain are not completely clear, but heel spurs may accompany the condition. When the heel spur occurs, it causes irritation and swelling of the heel, compressing nerves and adjacent tissues and causing pain. For this and similar situations, FootBalance recommends its special insoles for feet with sensitive skin. A special area of the heel is left hollow to absorb the load. Thanks to the extra cushioning in the heel, called epin support, it helps relieve pain by absorbing the load on the heel. It distributes the patient’s body weight more evenly from the heel to the rest of the foot. Provides healthy support and added comfort.

Are there special insoles for diabetics?

Diabetics are more likely than other people to have problems with their feet. One of the most important things that people with diabetes should not neglect is their foot health and care. What is often overlooked is that the anatomy and muscle structures of diabetic feet can change over time. Deformities may develop in the toes and soles. This can also change the load-bearing areas of the foot. It can expose the foot to repeated friction and trauma and cause discomfort such as calluses. Unwanted ulcers may develop in the soft tissue under the callus due to poor circulation over time. If nothing is done, this seemingly simple situation can lead to undesirable results in diabetic patients. Diabetics should work with a professional to learn their foot type, how they walk, and how and where they transfer weight to the sole of the foot. It is extremely important that patients have a healthy and balanced step and transfer their weight evenly to the floor. One way to protect foot health is to use diabetic-specific orthopedic insoles. FootBalance Medical Green Soft is an innovative and custom insoles designed specifically for diabetics who need more comfort and protection.

Do insoles help with knee, hip and back pain?

Our feet are the spokes of our body. Improper stepping can cause foot, heel, knee, hip and back pain. A natural, balanced stride and the even distribution of body weight over the floor are the keys to comfort and health. Orthopedic insoles should be used for this.

Should healthy people use orthopedic insoles as well?

Our right and left feet are as different as our right and left hands. Everyone has a unique foot structure. But our shoes are produced in thousands of units as standard. So each of us can personalize our shoes with custom insoles. Orthopedic insoles provide comfort, support and health for everyone.

Should I use insoles during pregnancy?

For expectant mothers, there is a higher than normal load on the muscles, joint areas and the entire body structure in general due to reasons such as rapid weight gain, hormonal and physical changes during pregnancy. A deformity of the foot has a serious effect on the full kinetic chain of the body. Rapid tiring while standing, walking and exercising is inevitable. Loss of balance and the risk of falling are other problems. In particular, low back pain, back pain, and foot and sole pain are common. With FootBalance custom insoles, you can easily adapt to changes in weight and balance.

Are there special insoles for sports and athletes?

FootBalance offers special insoles for amateur and professional athletes. The volume of the athlete’s shoe, cushioning, performance and support expectations are important. The insoles should be a perfect fit to the foot and shoe, just like a sock. Different insoles are recommended for sports with high heel impact, such as basketball, volleyball, tennis, handball and running, and for sports with very low-volume shoes, such as cycling, football boots and winter sports. The motto is “More performance for athletes, comfort and health for everyone”.

How long will the insoles last?

For sedentary people, it is recommended to replace the insoles every year. Professional athletes should use as many insoles as they change shoes in a year. In both cases, we recommend that our patients visit a FootBalance Center every 6 months for a free foot analysis.

At what age can children start using insoles?

In children, the development of the arch is complete between the ages of 5 and 6. From this time on, it is important to use custom orthopedic insoles with foot and stepping analysis. Orthopedic insoles designed specifically for children can help prevent the development or worsening of foot problems in the future.
