Podotech Children's Metatarsal Pads
It is important to catch problems either when they start developing or before they do so. That is why using an insole for children can help them to develop a natural walking position which can aid them significantly as they grow. The Podotech Children's Metatarsal Pads help to provide this support and for your children and their feet to develop the way they should.
Who Can Benefit from the Children's Metatarsal Pad?
The Metatarsal Pad is aimed at children still developing and growing. Using an insole when they are young can help them to correct their walking position before they get caught up on bad habits. The pad will help to correct their positioning. However, it is only a moderate correction to ensure the position is natural rather than forcing it too far in the opposite direction - they are still developing, after all.
They are designed to be used with the express kits. This means applying them in the right place according to the template to guarantee support and comfort for the child.
Features of the Children's Metatarsal Pad
The Metatarsal Pad is of moderate correction. This stops it being too high as this can force a developing foot into an unnatural position. Instead, it helps correct the foot alignment just enough to maintain and encourage a natural walking position.
The pad is made from a low density material. This provides comfort and softness to the feel of the pad, ensuring a child is at ease when wearing it and it does not cause any further discomfort to their feet.
The Metatarsal Pad is available in a range of sizes to ensure the best fit for the child and are available as single pair or as a pack of 10.
Where Should I Apply the Metatarsal Supports?
These metatarsal supports should be placed at the beginning of your arch near the forefoot. The flatter edge should be positioned just behind your metatarsal heads at the ball of your foot, with the tapered edge pointing towards your heel. The diagram below shows a general guide that will vary based on your insoles and foot shape.
