Formthotics is honoured to be the main sponsor and technical partner of the KNSB Baanselectie Twente - one of the top Dutch speed skating teams in The Netherlands (and the world - as the Dutch do love their skating!) for the next 4 years. Formthotics insoles plans to contribute to helping these skaters perform better during training and games. The unique cooperation was confirmed September 2017.
Formthotics are custom fitted foot orthotics, designed to provide the support and comfort that you need. With a unique design and manufacturing process, Formthotics have established distinguishing features that create the ultimate foot orthotics that naturally fit your feet.
One of the questions that gets asked a lot is “What type of Formthotics insoles will work best with my type of foot needs?" The best solution is to visit your medical professional who can determine the best options for your feet and the types of shoes you are wearing the most to get the most benefit from Formthotics. To learn how we have developed our unique product for all of the types of feet and footwear for both athletic use and medical use to get more people active and getting more comfort, balance, and performance from their shoes.
Our feet are pretty important even though we may take for granted how much they do for us every day. For example, did you know, a person has over 25% of the bones in their body right down in his or her feet? Being in the business of feet, we have researched the best options in an orthotic that will compliment shoes and bring comfort, balance, stability, and increased performance and endurance to people's feet. So how do Formthotics foot orthotics, stand apart from other brands? The differences between all of these foot othotics is amazing - and a bit overwhelming if you are just beginning to look into what is right for your 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)
As we age, sometimes mobility decreases due several reasons. Falling down can happen to the best of us and might just seem like and embarrassing inconvenience. However, injuries directly resulting from a fall in the elderly are the leading cause of hospitalisation and one of the top three causes of injury-related death (NZ ACC 2012). 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?
One of our United Kingdom Physio Therapists, Gerard Greene has been offering training to Physio therapists throughout Europe in our Formthotics brand for foot orthotics. Gerard began to fit Formthotics to his own patients within his clinic this year because he found they make such a great difference for people in their shoes. We had the priviledge to ask Gerard a few questions about the benefits he is finding fitting his patients with Formthotics.
"I completed my journey and made it to the Cape. A very hilly route getting there.
"Completing my journey has now found me with mixed emotions. Sad, as I'm actually going to miss living on the road and slogging my body everyday and pushing the limits. Sad, because I met so many beautiful people and received so much love and support from all of you. I'm going to miss that. Happy though as I can now rest and look forward to the "What next?""
"This journey has developed my passion to now think of ways how I can use my experience to assist, support and educate our first responders through PTSD and Depression. And so I am seriously looking into setting up a charitable organisation that can achieve these aims. Arohanui ki a koutou katoa whānau. Thank you "
