Carbon and Glass Fibre Rigid Insole Foot Plates

Designed to be installed by professional orthotists and podiatrists, the Carbon and Glass Fibre Rigid Insole Foot Plates can be tailored to each individual patient's shoes to ensure a perfect fit every time. The carbon fibre and glass fibre construction is extremely durable, and the rigid insoles are particularly ideal for use as rolling insoles for diabetic patients.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Pair of Rigid Insole Foot Plates

Please note that these are for use in the manufacturing of orthotics only. They are not suitable for use as everyday insoles.

Who Can Use the Insole Foot Plates?

The Rigid Insole Foot Plates are specifically for use by orthotists, podiatrists and other professional manufacturers of medical aids. They are designed for shaping single curves for medical orthoses, and they are particularly useful as rolling insoles for diabetic patients.

What's the Benefit of Carbon Fibre Foot Plates?

Carbon fibre foot plates are an ideal choice for use in medical orthotics as carbon fibre is tough and durable. This offers a more reliable and sturdy insole without compromise to comfort underfoot.

What's the Benefit of Thermoformable Composite?

The Carbon and Glass Fibre Foot Plates contain a thermoformable composite (TFC) material, which combines the high localised strength of carbon composite with the modelling properties of thermoplastics. The carbon fibres are interwoven with thermoplastic fibres to allow for the material to be heated and formed at lower temperatures.

Which Sizes Are Available?

To ensure that your patient can receive optimal comfort and support from their orthotics, the carbon fibre foot plates are available in a selection of sizes. Your required size(s) can be selected from the drop-down menu at the top of the page; please see below for more information about available options.

UK Shoe Size EU Shoe Size
UK Size 2 - 4 EU Size 35 - 37
UK Size 5 - 6.5 EU Size 38 - 40
UK Size 7 - 9 EU Size 41 - 43
UK Size 9.5 - 11 EU Size 44 - 46

How Do I Shape the Carbon and Glass Fibre Foot Plates?

As the Carbon and Glass Fibre Foot Plates are made from TFC, they can be moulded using a heat gun or by placing the material in a specialist oven. Extra reinforcement materials can also be heated and applied as per the needs of the patient.

The TFC custom lay-up can then be placed into the oven under vacuum at a maximum temperature of 430°F for 30 to 45 minutes to render the lay-up into a single piece. TFC is also remouldable should adjustments be required.

Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

If you would like a more detailed guide to trimming your insoles, please read our full guide on How to Trim Your Insoles.
