Who do orthopedists recommend custom insoles for?
Almost everyone, but especially children with scoliosis and flat feet, adults with heel pain, osteochondrosis, varicose veins, flat feet, arthrosis of the joints, pregnant women and those who are actively involved in sports or due to their profession have increased loads on the feet.
According to statistics, 75% of children 5-6 years old have a planovalgus installation of the feet, and by the age of 25-30, 95% of people show pronounced deformities of the musculoskeletal system.

Treatment and prophylactic orthopedic insoles
Individual orthopedic insoles to order in Kiev are designed to correct the arches of the foot in order to prevent and treat longitudinal-transverse flat feet, to reduce pain in arthrosis, bursitis, heel spurs, corns, reduce the shock load on the joints of the legs and the spine.
The insoles are definitely recommended for people suffering from plantar fasciitis (heel spur), diseases in the ankle and hip joints. With age, due to the pathological position of the joints, their gradual deformation occurs, which affects the condition of the cartilage tissue - the cause of arthrosis. Through the incorrect distribution of weight, not only cartilage tissue begins to suffer, but also muscles, which are constantly in a tense state, supporting our skeleton. The usual, at first glance, flat feet may in the future cause serious diseases of the musculoskeletal system, including the spine.
Individual orthopedic insoles using Swiss Orthema technology perform both preventive and curative functions, correctly distributing weight throughout the body.
Who needs orthopedic insoles and why?
A certain relief, which have individual orthopedic insoles using the Swiss Orthema technology, has a therapeutic effect. Individual orthopedic insoles are used not only for the prevention and treatment of all forms of flat feet - transverse, longitudinal, but also for other ailments of the musculoskeletal system and feet.
The fact is that flat feet is a flattening of the arches of the foot. Because of this, the foot cannot perform its main function - spring. With the help of the arches, the foot dampens the shock load while walking, running, jumping.
When the arches of the foot are flattened, these shock loads are transferred to the joints, which subsequently undergo pathological changes. In addition, the pivot points on the foot change. Normally, there are three of them: the calcaneal tubercle, the area of the first and fourth metatarsophalangeal joints. With the flattening of the arches of the foot, the points of support also change, which leads to the development of corns, tension of the plantar fascia and the development of fasciitis (chronic pain in the heel), the appearance of arthrosis of the joints.
Considering all of the above, the treatment and prevention of flat feet is the prevention of diseases of the joints of the entire leg and spine - from osteochondrosis to scoliosis, pelvic disease - coxoarthrosis, sacroelitis, diseases of the knee joints, foot diseases and various painful sensations - in the neck, chest, back, legs ... Treatment of flat feet is possible only in children; in adults, flat feet can only be suspended, prevent its further development and eliminate the negative impact on the musculoskeletal system. Therefore, customized orthopedic insoles must be in demand and applied in a timely manner.
Treatment of flat feet when using orthopedic insoles
Individual orthopedic insoles (foot orthoses) are used for the following diseases:
Flat feet - customized orthopedic insoles help to properly distribute the load on the foot, as a result of which you can avoid problems with the spine and overstrain of the hip joints and joints of the lower extremities.
Arthrosis of the knee, ankle and hip joints - the correction of the load on the joints prevents further "erasure" of the cartilage between the joints and the progression of the disease (arthrosis) with further surgical intervention.
Heel spur - Orthema custom orthopedic insoles will help redistribute the load on different parts of the foot, reduce the pressure on the build-up, prevent further development of the spur, and you can walk without feeling pain.
Osteochondrosis - individual orthopedic insoles allow you to return the correct (healthy) load on the spine and muscle corset, to remove one of the main causes of osteochondrosis - deformation.
Bumps on the feet (Halus Valgus) - often occurs in women when they wear high-heeled shoes with a pointed toe. Orthema orthopedic insoles will ease pain and act as a preventive measure.
Diabetic foot - observed in diabetic patients with inflammatory processes of the foot, changes in the structure of the ankle joint and flat feet. Orthema orthopedic insoles are recommended to reduce stress and improve microcirculation of the feet, especially if they are made of special orthopedic material.
Gout - Customized orthopedic insoles are recommended to reduce stress on affected joints in people with gout.
Varicose veins - for the prevention and elimination of blood stagnation, as well as balancing the venous pump mechanism.
Scoliosis (impaired posture in children) - customized orthopedic insoles, made to order, affect the correct distribution of the load on the spine when walking, which allows you to form a healthy posture and muscle corset.
Orthema individual orthopedic insoles are recommended for use not only for those with flat feet, but also for everyone who cares about the health of their feet and legs.
With the constant wearing of individual orthopedic insoles, blood circulation improves, fatigue of the legs decreases, and edema decreases.
What are custom insoles?
Orthopedic insoles are available as standard or customized. Regular ones are produced in bulk at an average foot. However, the foot is as unique as a person's fingerprint! A template product simply cannot suit everyone, since there are no identical feet. Individual production of Orthema insoles allows you to take into account the peculiarities of your body: weight, foot structure, foot deformations during movement. The individual insole can be adjusted, gradually bringing the foot into the correct position, or change the shape taking into account the growth of the foot. Only individually made orthopedic insoles are capable of eliminating pain in the heel, feet, legs, back in case of diseases of the musculoskeletal system and preventing injuries during active sports.
Individual orthopedic insoles cannot be bought ready-made in an orthopedic salon or pharmacy, they can be made to order only for your foot. There are many techniques for making your foot print. We obtain a foot print using 540 sensors on a Swiss Orthema scanner (digitizer). This technology has several advantages:
- the ideal way to get the correct negative foot without interference and distortion,
- scanning and modeling of the insole is carried out under the supervision of a specialist - orthopedist-traumatologist,
- allows you to correct the elements of the foot by 3D modeling using a special program Orthema,
- the negative of the foot is removed in two positions with the unloaded (very important!) foot and standing, which allows you to get the most effective insoles, taking into account individual features.
What shoes can insoles be worn?
In any: everyday, sports and even home. This is achieved due to the minimum thickness of the individual insoles. Unlike leather insoles, our insoles are easy to clean without losing their functional properties and have a long service life.
Orthema orthopedic insoles are officially supplied to the Swiss army for soldiers suffering from flat feet.
Who makes custom insoles and how?
The formation of orthopedic insoles includes 3 stages:
Personal communication between the orthopedist-traumatologist with the patient in order to obtain a general picture of the problems associated with the existing pathologies of the musculoskeletal system.
At the consultation, the main cause is identified, which entailed a number of existing changes (heel spur, corns, "bone", pain in the joints and back, swelling).
1. The process of scanning the foot for the manufacture of individual orthopedic insoles
The first stage of making individual insoles is scanning the foot using a tactile 3D scanner.
Swiss specialists have created a special program that visualizes information about the foot - all 20 years of Orthema's experience has been invested in it. This unique program processes the data obtained by scanning the foot with 500 sensors under static load and the measurement data that were carried out excluding the static load, with the removal of the foot in a physiological position. To this can be added data from research in dynamics (when moving). Thanks to the obtained digital data, a specialist sees a visualized (in 3D format) digital copy of a person's foot on the monitor picture and, having special knowledge and skills, makes the necessary correction. The result is a completely individual orthopedic insole that will take into account all the features of a particular foot and restore the correct biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system.
2. The second stage is the manufacture of individual orthopedic insoles using 3D technology
The second stage of making insoles is digital data processing. Software for visualizing the processing of foot measurement data.
3. Modeling an individual orthopedic insole
Modeling an individual orthopedic insole using the program.
The data on the finished insole, processed by the program, is sent to a 3D milling cutter, which quickly (within 20-30 minutes) cuts the finished insole from a special orthopedic material. The insoles exactly correspond to the parameters of the human foot, the measurement data of which was used to make an individual orthopedic insole.
Accurate 100% 3D measurement, unparalleled in the global market:
- mechanical scanning with more than 500 sensors of fabrics regardless of external influences such as light, dust and clothing.
