Foundation of the Body
Your feet are the foundation of your body. They support you when you stand, walk, or run. And they help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from damaging stress as you move around. Your feet perform better when all their muscles, arches, and bones are in their ideal stable positions.
It's a chain reaction.
The Gait Cycle System® works like this :
At heel strike, The Gait Cycle System offers a Zorbacel® heel pad for maximum shock absorption.
The StanceGuard™ layer provides variable firmness, flexibility, and control at midstance.
The Gait Cycle System provides a pad of Propacel™ for a propulsive boost at toe-off to reduce fatigue.
Comfort and Support
Custom-made SPS Orthotics are individualized to stabilize your spine and pelvis by correcting imbalances in your feet – the foundation of your skeletal system. Though they may go unnoticed, these imbalances contribute to fatigue, misalignments, and pain in areas throughout your body.
These imbalances may occur even if you're not experiencing foot pain. Off-the-rack shoe inserts cannot give you the unique support and placement that your feet need to maintain proper, stable positioning. They are made for the masses but Foot Levelers' SPS Orthotics are made just for you.
Foot Levelers custom designs SPS Orthotics through a casting process that your healthcare professional uses in his or her office. First, you step into a foam casting kit or scan with The Associate™ which captures an exact impression of your feet while you are standing, with your full weight on your feet. Your healthcare provider will determine which style of SPS Orthotic is appropriate for you, and then the kit is sent to our laboratory where the orthotics are created to correct any imbalances found in the three arches of your feet. Your new orthotics will be sent to your care provider, who will show you how to wear and care for them.
Unique Just Like You
Foot Levelers' expert technicians analyze every individual foot impression we receive. Using 16 precise measurements, we create a custom-made SPS Orthotic that restores balance to the three arches of your feet. Different shoe styles require different orthotics. As your activity changes, so does your shoe style.That's exactly why you need a Foot Levelers Combo. Combos provide two pairs of orthotics; one for shoes with laces and one for shoes without laces. This assures the continuous support your body needs for work, play and exercise.
Sixteen measurements ensure that your orthotic is a custom fit.
A variety of styles are available for all activity levels. Full-length and 3/4 length orthotics fit a wide variety of shoe styles.
Only Foot Levelers' SPS orthotics provide support to all three arches of the foot.
Foot Levelers' custom made orthotics help promote a healthy, natural, skeletal alignment for total body health.
Your lifestyle, age, weight, activity level, and condition are all considered when we create your custom-made orthotics.
A Nessary Adjunct
Patients with certain types of spinal problems benefit from custom made orthotic support (SPS Orthotics, Shoethotics®, or Sandalthotics®). These devices stabilize the foundation of the pelvis and spine, reducing abnormal forces and stresses, while enhancing structural and functional relationships. When necessary, this office provides custom made, flexible othotics as an important adjunct to effective chiropractic care.
