Who Can Benefit from the Metatarsal Pad?
The High Density Wide Raise Metatarsal Pad is designed to be used with the Express Kits, ensuring a custom made orthotic that provides the right level of support for your entire foot.

The high density means the pad has a firm feel to it. This adds to the support, especially when pain and discomfort is being felt in the metatarsal area.
Features of the Metatarsal Pad

It is available in a large range of sizes - small to extra extra large - in order to find the fit that is most appropriate for you. You can purchase High Density Metatarsal Pads either as a single pair or as a pack of 10 pairs.
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.
