05 February 2018 - posted by Formthotics HQ

Lower limb injuries can be a major issue for military personnel. Any time major field work, training, and requirements that keep an individual on his or her feet for hours at a time can cause a lot of  trauma in the legs and feet.  Formthotics has had the privilege of working with La Trobe University, in Melbourne, Australia, to assist in a series of research studies to determine if orthoses can assist in preventing lower leg and foot injuries. This past October 2017, research was published from LaTrobe University on lower limb overuse injury prevention with Formthotics (Bonanno DR, et al. Br J Sports Med 2017;0:1–6. doi:10.1136/bjsports-2017-098273) conducted with Navy military recruits. The findings were astounding. Out of a sample size of 306 naval recruits who were fitted with Formthotics, there was a 34% reduction in common lower limb injuries

How can I prevent blisters on my feet?

30 November 2017 - posted by Formthotics HQ
I rritating and troublesome, blisters are not a joy for anyone. If you are a runner, work on your feet all day, or walk a lot,  it is never fun to have a blister develop. So why do these painful bumps develop and how can they be prevented?  How do you best care for blisters properly before they are extremely painful and debilitating?  It's important to always be treating your feet with the best care, so we want to address this painful issue to help with understanding why blisters occur and actions to take to prevent these painful blisters on my feet.
 

Why do blisters occur?

Blisters are mainly caused by friction, usually your shoes or socks rubbing against your skin. Anything that intensifies rubbing can start a blister, including a faster pace walking, hiking, or running; poor-fitting shoes; poorly fastened footwear (not doing up laces correctly); and the fabric and texture of your sock. Friction can also be intensified by heat and moisture making your feet swell inside those socks and shoes. (1)

One in three people aged 65 and over are falling each year.  How can we delay this from happening, gain more control and stability in our feet, and prevent falls?
