When it comes to preventing or treating foot pain caused by a lack of support, Custom Orthotics Insoles, or simply Custom Insoles are one of the best solutions available in Singapore today.
If you’re suffering from foot pain, you may be interested in getting custom orthotic insoles. Let us help you learn more about the benefits of getting a pair of custom orthotic insoles for your feet, as well as how to go about getting them.
Why get Custom Orthotic Insoles?
Custom Orthotics Insoles are an excellent way to help prevent and treat many foot problems.
Most people with foot problems do not realise that they have an issue until it has become very severe. This is because most people simply ignore the signs of pain until it becomes unbearable.
Custom Insoles work by providing extra support where it’s needed most: in your arch area and along the sides of your feet. They allow you to move around more freely without worrying about injuring yourself further down the line, and help you to stay active even if your feet hurt.
What are the differences between Custom-Made Insoles and Ready-Made Insoles?
Custom-made Insoles are the most effective type of insoles because they are designed according to your unique foot structure.
They are made by taking measurements of your feet (i.e. shape, size, length, width and arch height), measuring your pressure distribution, and taking into account factors such as age, weight, lifestyle and activity level.
Using the latest technology to scan your feet, a 3D model is created. This 3D model is then used to design an insole that provides maximum support for your specific foot type.
Custom-made Insoles are generally made of flexible TPU polymer materials, which are skin-friendly, anti-bacterial, and mildew-proof.
As they are designed from the impression of your feet, custom-made Insoles are made to be worn inside your shoes/sandals and can provide maximum relief from pain and discomfort caused by foot conditions such as flat feet, fallen arches etc.
They also provide support to your ankles, knees and hips.
Ready-made Insoles are made from standardised moulds and mass-produced for each individual size. They are designed to fit more feet than just one specific person’s needs. They come in different shapes and sizes and are effective for general purposes since they are not customised for each individual person’s needs like the custom-made ones do.
Ready-made Insoles are also less expensive than their customised counterparts because they do not require any special training or equipment to make them.
Although these may work well for some people, they might not be as effective as custom ones when it comes to providing relief from pain in your feet and legs.
