Shock absorbers for the ankle
Each step affects not only the ankle joints, but also the legs, knees and hips, and right up to the spine. Initial talagia can therefore spread if it remains untreated. ViscoSpot® heel orthoses act like shock absorbers for your joints. The viscoelastic material absorbs shock loads and counteracts pain. Even longer walks can be managed easily once again.
Soft and retains its fit
ViscoSpot are durable heel orthoses, with a fit which can adapt to every shape of shoe and to every foot. The softest material (white spot) incorporated in the "calcaneal spur" area, which is particularly sensitive to pain, provides targeted relief at this point. A specially shaped zone (blue spot), which offers an intermediate level of cushioning between the white and gray materials, also provides relief for the aponeurosis attachment point on the foot. The foot orthosis still retains its shape and function when worn for a long time and subjected to considerable weight. Lasting protection is provided for the knee, hip and pelvic joints.
ViscoSpot heel orthoses and other Bauerfeind products are available from medical and orthopedic retailers. Here, trained staff will advise you and take precise measurements to ensure that your foot orthosis is sitting comfortably and securely in position.
