Pure Stride Ultra Orthotics
Pure Stride Ultra Orthotics give quick pain relief in the arch, heel and metatarsals. Pure Stride Ultra Orthotics are made up of four layers to ensure comfort. The first layer is an anti-bacterial mesh, the second layer is a polyurethane foam which helps cushion the foot, the third layer is a PET shell and the fourth layer is a high durometer EVA. The heel area has a recessed large Poron layer to help cushion the heel. The PET shell is heat moldable and features an 18 month guarantee from cracking.

for Heat-Molding Pure Stride Ultra Orthotics
different ways to measure the orthotic arch height so the orthotic provides
support but is not applying excess force against the arch causing discomfort. Measuring
the arch height with the patient standing relaxed and applying mild upward
pressure with a level finger is a good way to estimate the dynamic arch height
during gait. Using a mm ruler, measure the floor to the top of your finger
pressing upward against the navicular tuberosity.
with flexible flat feet will commonly have a medially positioned STJ axis that
will exit the foot in the mid arch area. In this case, a higher arch will cause
increased compression rather than rotation of the STJ. It is best to be careful
not to raise the arch too much as the patient will not be able to tolerate the
orthotic as the foot pronates during gait.
using a heat gun.
bottom of the arch and keep the heat gun at least 8 inches from the orthotic
while slowly moving the heat gun back and forth to avoid burning the black EVA.
Heat for about 4 minutes until you can easily deform the arch with mild
pressure. After it is heated, apply downward pressure on the arch to the
prescribed arch height with care being taken to keep the heel and front of the
insert contacting the supporting surface. Hold this position for about 2
minutes for adequate cooling while the shell takes on its new contour.
using a toaster convention oven.
inserts in the oven at 225 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove inserts and place
downward pressure on the arch. If the arch resists deformation, replace it in
the oven for another 60 seconds and recheck. Once the inserts are heated
adequately, remove them from the oven. Apply downward pressure to the right
arch to the prescribed arch height. Place the left orthotic adjacent to the
right orthotic and deform the arch the same height as the right orthotic if
both arch heights are the same. Maintain the position of the arches for about
two minutes for adequate cooling.
Heat-Molded Orthotics in Shoes
orthotics are wide to allow greater surface area to provide greater control.
Place the orthotics in the shoes and ensure that there is ample room for them.
Have the patient walk to assess how the orthotics feel and that they are
comfortable. The orthotics can always be reheated to increase or decrease the
arch height if necessary.
