specifically designed to redistribute force and/or correct the functional alignment of the feet, ankles and legs. They are special innersoles/footbeds that are often prescribed by Podiatrists for a variety of problems affecting the foot, ankle, leg, knee, hip and back. If you require
information on how orthotics can help you, please contact your local Podiatrist.
