Features & Benefits of the Talarmade Elevate 3/4 Length Orthotics
The main advantage of the Talarmade Elevate 3/4 Length Orthotics over other equivalent insoles and inserts is that they can be altered by a specialist to ensure that they offer the perfect support for your foot.
The Talarmade Elevate 3/4 Length Orthotics offer the opportunity to control foot posture and also specifically modify the pressure distribution under the foot by means of anatomical contouring and supportive padding. It is designed to follow the anatomical features of the foot to aid stability and also act as a vehicle for the addition of forefoot and arch pads to be fixed to the top side of the orthotic to provide extra stability and strength to failing structures.
The postural control of the foot can be increased by selecting a heel elevator or medial post, either of which can be fixed to the underside of the Talarmade Elevate 3/4 Length Orthotics. This allows a fully customisable orthotic prescription can be provided and an exceptional fit achieved.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Wearing-In Period is Required?
A wearing in period must be allowed for in order to give the patient time to get used to the orthotic. However, it is not unusual to notice an immediate beneficial effect.
How Long Will They Last?
This will vary between patients and depend on a number of factors such as patient weight and activity level. Around 6-8 months is the average product life if cared for properly.
Which Density Should be Used?
Firm= 60 Shore A and should be used for higher control, heavier patients or high levels of impact
Medium= 45 Shore A and should be used for medium levels of control, lower activity levels and shock absorption required.
Dual= Medium 45 Shore A for medium control with a 20 Shore A soft top cover for cushioning support.
Can Elevate be Used in Different Shoes?
Elevate has been designed to be used in a wide range of shoes, however in tighter fitting footwear it may be more appropriate to use the 3/4 length model to allow for more natural movement of the toes within the shoe and avoid skin pressure points.
Can Elevate be Cleaned?
They should be cleaned regularly in order to prolong the product life expectancy. We would recommend gently sponging them with warm, soapy water and drying with paper towel. Do not soak or dry artificially.
