Who Are the Express Orthotics For?
These ready-fit medical insoles were designed to support limbs or joints that don't function correctly, and are ideal for treating lower limb injuries. Moreover, these insoles:
- Provide support thanks to their arch profile
- Increase bio-mechanical support
- Improve alignment of the lower limbs
- Increase stability and balance
- Reduce the shock of heel strike thanks to cushioned heel cup
- Decrease the velocity of rear foot pronation
- Decrease shoe wear on the outside heel
- Reduce shock during propulsion due to forefoot cushioning
What's Different About Express Orthotics?
Invented and designed in New Zealand by Foot Science International, Express Orthotics are one of the best insoles for supporting a limb or joint that is injured or doesn't function correctly. They feature tapered arch support, which allows greater movement of the first metatarsal joint, and minimises the chances of experiencing pain and discomfort when wearing orthoses. Moreover, their deep heel cup provides additional stability.
Each pack of these insoles comes with a set of rearfoot and forefoot wedges. You can use these to adjust the insoles to fit your requirements.
How Easy to Use Are These Insoles?
The Express Orthotics are for individuals who would like a preformed and ready-to-use orthotic solution. This is why they are designed to be used straight from the box, with no heat moulding required. They will conform to the shape of the foot by body weight and body heat alone.
What Is the Difference Between Red and Blue Express Orthotics?
The main difference between red and blue insoles is their density. These Express Hard Density Red Insoles are designed to increase bio-mechanical support, provide high-performance shock absorption and comfort. They are also perfect for users weighing over 90kg (14 stone).
The Express Firm Density Blue Insoles, on the other hand, can easily improve fit and comfort for the foot in virtually any shoe. They are made from moderate EVA foam to provide a comfortable option for the first time insole user.
What Is the Difference Between 3/4 Length and Full Length Insoles?
The Express Hard Density Red Insoles are available in 3/4 length and full length. The 3/4 length provides greater versatility and is ideal for narrow or pointed shoes, while full length insoles provide standard support and can be worn in most casual and sports shoes.
How Quickly Will I Get Used to My New Orthotics?
Most users find that their Express Orthotics are comfortable straight away. In certain cases, however, it may take a few days for your feet to adjust to the support and function of these insoles. Please note that if you are still feeling discomfort after two weeks, you should stop wearing the insoles.
Can I Heat These Insoles?
For your convenience, these insoles have been designed to be dispensed without heat moulding. If you wish, however, you can gently heat the insoles to alter their shape.
How Long Can I Expect My Express Orthotics to Last?
Your Express Orthotics will normally last at least as long as the shoe they are fitted into. Most users, however, find that their insoles last a minimum of nine to 12 months.
How Do I Care for These Insoles?
To maximise the usability and longevity of your insoles, take the insoles out of the shoe, wipe clean with a warm damp sponge, and allow them to dry before placing them back inside the shoes. Do not soak the insoles for any period of time, and keep them away from heat as this may cause damage.
