ErgoPad® ball & racket
The foot orthosis for ball sports
The ErgoPad® ball & racket orthopedic orthosis has been specially developed for match sports and racket sports such as basketball, handball, tennis and squash. It relieves the foot and ankle during the quick stops and turns. Its innovative weightflex® core provides gentle support for the foot arches and promotes the natural heel-to-toe movement of the foot. The polyurethane soft foam that is kind to skin makes it particularly thin, yet it still acts as an effective shock absorber.
- Stabilizes the hindfoot and ankle
- Stimulates the foot muscles and improves motor skills
- Top cover kills bacteria and inhibits odors
Optimum stability for the feet during quick changes of direction
Quick stops and turns are typical of indoor and ball sports. However, this means hard work for the feet and the associated joints. The ErgoPad® ball & racket sports orthosis provides relief for this: its heel cup stabilizes the hindfoot and ankle. Small spots also stimulate the foot muscles, thus improving motor skills. The toe bank stretches the small toes, preventing them from getting cramp and increasing contact between the foot and shoe.
Flexible yet stable: the orthotic core
The innovative weightflex X synthetic core is made up of two plastics with different levels of firmness. The combination of these plastic elements with the X shape makes the core stable and flexible at the same time. This enables it to support the foot arches without restricting the foot's natural movement.
Fits into most sports shoes
Thanks to the PU soft foam's thin finish, the ErgoPad® ball & racket has a reduced construction height and therefore fits into most shoes for ball sports and indoor sports.
- Heel cup – provides stability when moving sideways and starting and stopping
- Weightflex® technology – supports the natural movement of the feet
- Sensorimotor spots – stimulate the foot muscles
- Antibacterial top cover – inhibits odors
- Toe bank – relieves the Achilles tendon and enhances the contact surface of the feet
The asymmetrical x-shaped core supports the natural spiral dynamics and movement of the foot by guiding and counteracting for less expenditure of energy and symptoms of fatigue.
- When selecting your foot orthosis, think about when you want to use it. The type of foot orthoses depends on the footwear being worn. The shoe and the foot orthosis must fit together!
