Podotech Latex Metatarsal Wide Fit Pads for Express Kits (Pack of Five Pairs)
Reducing the pressure on the metatarsal area of the foot is a problem that can be hard to solve. The Podotech Latex Metatarsal Wide Fit Pads are designed to do just this. The wide fit provides comfort and support for people that might otherwise find it difficult to obtain the right sized insoles for their feet. Latex is known for reducing the pressure, comforting and relieving pain in this area.
Who Can Benefit from the Metatarsal Wide Fit Pads?
The wide fit of the pads make them suitable for anyone to use. However, they are particularly suited for those with wide feet, ensuring the support is across the whole of the foot rather than a narrower area. The material used to make the pads helps to reduce the pressure around the metatarsal area, making these pads ideal for those who suffer from pain and excess pressure in this area.
The latex metatarsal wide fit pads are designed for use with the Insole Express Kit to help provide additional support for this area.
Features of the Wide Fit Pads
The use of latex in insoles/wedges has been proven to reduce the pressure from the metatarsal bone – particularly the heads of the bone – and therefore ease the pain and discomfort caused by this pressure. The metatarsal pads are made of this, helping to support the foot and ease any discomfort that may be caused.
The wide fit provides relief across the whole width of the foot rather than it being focused on a specific area and have a hardness of 15-20 Shore A. The Metatarsal Wide Fit Pads are supplied in a pack of five pairs.
Where Should I Apply the Metatarsal Supports?
These metatarsal supports should be placed at the front of your metatarsal area, just behind your toe joints. The flatter edge should be positioned just behind your metatarsal heads at the ball of your foot, with the tapered edge resting at the beginning of your arch and pointing towards your heel. The diagram below shows a general guide that will vary based on your insoles and foot shape.
