Podotech Medium Density Metatarsal Pads for Express Kits
It can be hard finding the right density when it comes to metatarsal pads. The Podotech Medium Density Metatarsal Pads have a medium density to provide adequate support to the metatarsal area but without being too hard for areas that may otherwise be suffering from discomfort.
Who Can Benefit from Medium Density Metatarsal Pads?
The Metatarsal Pad is ideal for those who need some extra support around the metatarsal area. They are designed to be used with the express kits, following the template to ensure the pad is positioned in the right place.
The medium density means the pad is able to offer support for those who need a little extra comfort and stability around this area of the foot. It is not too hard to cause more issues than it solves, nor is it too soft to not offer the support the wearer might desire.
The shape of the pad means that it provides the same amount of support across the whole width of the toe, aiding each metatarsal bone rather than focusing on the area behind the big toe.
Features of the Medium Density Metatarsal Pad
The Medium Density Metatarsal Pad is available in four different sizes and are supplied as a pair.
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.
