Professional ORTHO SYSTEMS
A modular system – from experts for experts
About 60 percent of the population suffer from mild foot complaints, 20 % need professional orthopaedic insoles and only about 20 % have healthy feet. In our lifetime, we round up the Earth about four times – our feet literally carry us through, that’s why it is important to preserve their health.
Keep your feet healthy
pedag wants to keep your feet healthy. Our foot supports have been developed in close cooperation with orthopaedic experts and help preventing foot complaints. If you are among the many people who already suffer from mild foot issues, pedag can help you, too: our OTC products level out foot disorders like fallen arches, flat and splayed feet and alleviate the pain caused by painful complaints like heel spurs and hammer toes.
20 % of the population need orthopaedic insoles
About a 20 % of the population suffer from such considerable foot disorders, that they require an orthopaedic treatment to level out and compensate for malformed feet and alleviate the pain – pain-free walking for our patients.
pedag’s Professional ORTHO SYSTEMS is especially made for experts. Its professional technique allows experts to manufacture customised orthopaedic insoles: this system makes it possible to produce customised arch supports that can be individually adapted to every patient’s needs. Not two feet are the same and every major foot issue requires an individual treatment. Professional ORTHO SYSTEMS make this goal feasible.
A modular system
Our pedag modular system uses efficient and modern measurement techniques and fully compatible modules that can be combined to individual orthopaedic supports. The state-of-the-art analogue and digital measurement technologies are the key to Professional ORTHO SYSTEMS.
The digital foot-scanner captures the exact footprint and shows you where the patient’s feet bare most weight. The integrated software then gives you recommendations about the most appropriate modules of the Professional ORTHO SYSTEMS series to build the best orthopaedic insole. The modules include arch support blanks, metatarsal pads, heel wedges and balancing plates.
The blanks are the foundation of every orthopaedic foot support. They support the foot in its natural movement and keep it in the right place. As every foot is different, we offer blanks in a wide range of different lengths, materials and degrees of stability.
The metatarsal pad is a special kind of pad that supports the transversal arch of the foot. They are used to treat splayed feet. Heel wedges and balancing plates serve to level out unequal leg lengths or to compensate for different kinds of malformations.
The modules of Professional ORTHO SYSTEMS can be combined in as many different ways as there are different feet and complaints. Its elements have been especially developed from practitioners for practitioners with the goal to efficiently provide patients with custom-made orthopaedic foot supports.
