An insole is a medical appliance adapted personally to the patient's foot. The function of the insoles:
To spread weight evenly over the feet
To support
To improve posture and hence the quality of life
To relieve pain
To assist in recovery from serious wounds

There are two types of insoles: biomechanical (supportive) and accomodatory (cushioning). The insoles are made of a wide variety of materials, and adapted to the specific problems of the patient, his needs and his weight. They may last several years and may be adapted to all types of footwear, including elegant ladies' shoes.

Biomechanical insoles
These are made according to a plaster mold of the foot in Subtalar Joint Neutral Position – i.e the normal standing position. It is thus possible to control the foot and the ankle, whose stability may affect the knees and lower back.
Frequent conditions that can be solved by the use of such insoles: Back pain, muscular pains, heel pains (spurs), recurrent sprains, knee pain, protruding bones of the foot, improvement of children's posture, diabetic foot, walking fractures amongst soldiers, protection for sportsmen's feet.

Accomodatory insoles
These are soft insoles, intended to cushion the feet. They are measured by inserting the foot into a spongy mold and/or manually. These insoles may compensate for inadequate cushioning of the balls of the feet, and may also serve as shock-absorbers, or benefit people who have limited mobility of the foot joints.
