Viscoelastic heel cushions for the treatment of heel spurs.
Calcaneal spurs or osteoarthritis can result in severe pain triggered by overloading when walking or standing. ViscoSpot heel orthoses cushion the shock load of every step. With the ViscoSpot, materials with different levels of firmness are arranged vertically so that pressure is distributed evenly with every step. The individual zones are assembled together so precisely and smoothly that you won't feel the joins against your foot. The viscoelastic shape adapts itself perfectly to both the shoe and the foot.
- For the treatment of talagia
- Anatomical fit
- High level of wearing comfort
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.
