WHAT ARE FOOT ORTHOTICS?

By definition, a foot orthotic is a non-surgical medical device made to control the way a foot functions. At the end of the day, you have only one thing in mind – making your feet and overall body feel better. A properly manufactured foot orthotic inserted into your shoes will correct abnormalities in your biomechanical function, thus reducing pain, providing support, and relieving stress on joints and bones.
Foot pain is only ONE SYMPTOM of abnormal foot function! Keep in mind that foot orthotics not only alleviate foot pain but are effective in treating hip pain, lower back pain, and knee pain that are a result of mal-alignments in the lower body.

The QUADRASTEP® SYSTEM® is based on a clinical assessment method which identifies and differentiates the structural and functional
aspects of the foot into 6 specific foot “types”.
Each foot type influences not only the way you walk but the conditions and symptoms that may affect you throughout your life.

WHAT MAKES QUADRASTEP® ORTHOSES UNIQUE?

QUADRASTEP® foot orthotics are manufactured from an injection molded thermoplastic compound for strength with a “soft-edge” feel which gives incredible support while maintaining comfort. They are a single piece incorporating all of the required postings, recesses and heel cup/sidewall heights to
effectively treat your foot type.
Remember, these are medical devices, not the over-the-counter arch supports you buy off the rack. These are specifically designed to alleviate pain from some of these common ailments:
