Why Orthotics

Why Orthotics


Correctly fitted orthotics help re-align the body providing support, comfort and targeted pain relief for specific foot problems through the re-distribution of pressure points.
Orthotic insoles can have a major effect in the way you walk or run by improving balance, control and weight distribution.
They also improve the overall fit and comfort of your shoes creating a general feeling of wellbeing.
Aetrex orthotics provide unsurpassed comfort, support and performance so you feel great on your feet all the time.

Correct Posture

Correct posture/back pain

The importance of correct posture to our general wellbeing cannot be stressed too highly. The building block for good posture starts with how our body weight is distributed through our feet. Too much forefoot pressure will put undue strain on our knees, hips and lower back resulting in fatigue and potential injuries.
Aetrex orthotics help re-align the weight distribution through our feet reducing the above problems.
And with Aetrex’s revolutionary istep technology you can see a detailed accurate scan, within 30 seconds, of your bodies pressure points through your feet, any necessary adjustments required and the specific orthotic to correct this.

The 3 Essentials

What can I do to feel great on my feet?  How can I prevent foot pain and live life to the fullest? At Aetrex we know the answer lies in finding products that match your unique footcare needs and provide true customised comfort.

The first step to customised comfort is to identify the 3 essential elements of your feet – your foot size, arch type and pressure points. Aetrex’s patented iStep technology captures these 3 essentials, immediately calculates your iMatch, and then recommends the ideal footwear package for your feet.

Why Orthotics foot size

1st Essential: Foot Size.

A proper fit is critical for customised comfort.  Your foot size changes throughout your life, and an improper fit can cause painful foot conditions.  Aetrex footwear comes in multiple widths and offers unique features that help provide a customised fit.

Why Orthotics arch type

2nd Essential: Arch Type - Low, Medium or High. 

Identifying your arch type is as important as your foot size.  For example, people with flat feet have very different footwear needs than those with higher arches. Aetrex shoes and orthotics can be integrated to provide optimal comfort for each arch type.

Why Orthoticspressure points

3rd Essential: Pressure Points. 

Customised comfort requires a pressure free environment in your shoes. With Aetrex orthotics and Mozaic Customisation, specific pressure points can be quickly relieved to help ensure maximum comfort.
