ErgoPad® weightflex 2
The orthopedic ErgoPad weightflex 2 foot orthosis is particularly flat and flexible and is ideal for patients who change their shoes regularly. The innovative core supports the foot arches and allows a natural heel-to-toe movement. It is coated in high-quality polyurethane soft foam, which has effective cushioning properties despite its reduced construction height and it cushions the forefoot without losing its durability.
The new foot orthoses feature a core coated with high-quality polyurethane soft foam. The unique technique of using a partial foam coating leaves the core and its functionality exposed. The durable polyurethane plastic has effective cushioning properties despite its reduced construction height and it cushions sensitive areas of the foot. Slight sensorimotor spots in the PU surface gently stimulate the musculature. This stabilizes the hindfoot and supports the transverse arch.
The centerpiece of the foot orthosis is the synthetic core with variable support. It combines two types of plastic with different levels of firmness in the orthotic core. The internal "weightflex-X" offers variable support according to foot conditions, therapeutic goals and body weight, with support levels of soft, medium or strong.
Thanks to the flexibility of the orthotic core in the forefoot and heel areas, the foot orthoses can easily be worn in shoes with higher heels.
The ErgoPad weightflex 2 is only available from orthotic retailers– with or without a prescription.
1) Flexible orthotic core:
The flexible orthotic core, offering three different levels of firmness, boosts the torsional moment, supports the longitudinal arch and provides optimal guidance for every step.
The orthotic core is bendable in both the heel and forefoot areas, so it can be adapted to suit a variety of heel heights.
3) Anatomy taken into account:
The edging at the front of the core is anatomically contoured, leaving the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints free. The edges are thin.
4) Reduced strain at the base of the fifth MTP joint:
The outer area of the orthotic core is lower at the base of the fifth metatarsal bone. This takes into account the biomechanical requirements of this part of the foot.
