Interpod Vari-Force Foot Orthotics - High and Low Force Orthotic Devices Library
The Interpod Library range gives the practitioner the ability to prescribe the minimal amount of support needed to reduce symptoms.
Vari-Force High and Low Force Orthotics
HIGH Stiffness: Orthotics Used for HIGH supination resistance results. Patients requiring added support without extra rearfoot or midfoot orthotic shell height. Can be used with a firm heel lift to speed up the Centre of Pressure.
LOW Stiffness: Orthotics Used for LOW supination result. Patients with increased forefoot stiffness. Assists the forefoot to rotate about the fifth met giving a higher GIB test result. Can be used with a soft heel lift to reduce the speed of the Centre of Pressure.
Maximise Clinical Outcomes
The Interpod Library range gives the practitioner the ability to prescribe the minimal amount of support needed to reduce symptoms. This can be done by doing a supination resistance test which correlates forces and loads to prescribing a level of orthotic support.
When measured the harder it is to supinate the foot the greater the force an orthotic device needs to cause a supination moment at the subtalar joint axis. Conversely, the easier it is to supinate the foot then the lower the force required from an orthotic device. This force can be measured using the Keystone device when performing a supination resistance test.
Research shows this test is more predictive of injury than Foot Posture or other subjective views of alignment. A medially located subtalar joint axis will have a higher supination resistance reading and require increased orthotic support - rearfoot wedging, arch height or orthotic stiffness. A
lateral located subtalar joint axis will have a low supination resistance reading and require less orthotic support - rearfoot wedging, arch height or orthotic stiffness. The Interpod Library of orthoses provides practitioners with various levels of Rearfoot support and Midfoot support, various levels of orthotic material stiffness and arch heights to customised and treat patients depending upon their individual biomechanics.
