WHAT DOES “ADJUSTABLE ARCH SUPPORT” MEAN & WHY DOES IT MATTER?

WHAT DOES “ADJUSTABLE ARCH SUPPORT” MEAN & WHY DOES IT MATTER?

Adjustability In Our Lives

As we go about our daily lives, we don’t always take stock of just how important the factor of “adjustability” is to add comfort and convenience.  How would feel if you could not adjust your shower pressure, or when you sat in your car you couldn’t adjust your seat to accommodate your long or shorter legs.  A more recent, but popular trend is the ability to adjust your bed for a more comfortable and restful sleep.

Adjustability improves our lives in countless ways throughout the day, and this benefit has been extended to how we improve upon our foot comfort and health.

Adjustable Arch Support

Arch support is a crucial part of not only foot care but one’s overall healthcare.  Historically, arch supports are static, non-customizeable products.  Whether you purchase an over-the-counter insole or a custom insole molded to your foot, it is by nature a “static” insert with no adjustability.  If you could have the ability to adjust a portion of the insert, therapeutic benefits can be achieved…especially as it relates to the arch.

When you have proper “Adjustable” arch support, the benefits include:

  • Helping to distribute pressure. Arch evenly distribute pressure across your feet and align your body.
  • Providing stability and balance. Arch supports are a great source for balance and support. They can help improve your posture and balance which can help lessen foot pain and problems related to imbalance and a lack of proper support.
  • Providing support. For those who require specialized support, their feet ailments may demand that they use artificial supports. These can help to alleviate pain and/or prevent further damage. This might be especially beneficial for those who suffer from plantar fasciitis.
  • Lessening or preventing pain. Arch supports can help lessen your foot pain. Foot pain can not only cause discomfort but make it difficult to go about your day and handling important duties. However, in cases where it’s still possible, it may still be quite painful for you.
  • Preventing your arches from harm. Not only can arch supports help alleviate pain but they also provide support to your arches which prevents them from collapsing. Once they collapse, often the plantar fasciitis stretches out which could lead to painful foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis.

There has never been an insoles that allows the wearer to adjust the level of support within the arch.  By virtue of having proper arch support you would be able to properly distribute pressure across your arches, provide stability and balance, provide support, and lessen foot pain (WebMD). For people already suffering from chronic conditions of the feet or persistent pain, proper arch support can help alleviate symptoms and assist in recovery.

WHY ARE INSOLES WITH VRB TECHNOLOGY BETTER FOR YOUR FEET

WHY ARE INSOLES WITH VRB TECHNOLOGY BETTER FOR YOUR FEET

FOCUS ON ARCH SUPPORT FOR A GREAT BASE OF HEALTH

Arch support is a term being used a lot in the “Health Awareness” community.  When shopping for almost any type of shoe today, you’ll undoubtedly be asked..”what’s  your foot type?”.  You should know that if you have an abnormally high or low arch and if you tend to overpronate or underpronate and choose a shoe accordingly.  Even more importantly, complimentary to most shoes, it is worthwhile to consider an orthotic insole to put in that shoe in replace of the factory insole.  More often than not, they DO NOT provide the proper Arch Support that coincides with your individual foot type. 

Studies have shown a reduction in pain after using arch support, mainly because arch support provides a cushion to the affected area. Neutral cushioned shoes can result in the reduction of pain in flat-footed athletes with plantar pressure. Another trial was held on 43 patients with plantar fasciitis.  According to 2016 National Runner Survey, motion control (adjustability), cushion, stability, and injury prevention were some of the biggest concerns on buyers' mind.

NEW TECHNOLOGY TO DYNAMICALLY ADJUST YOUR ARCH SUPPORT

Insoles are all generally “static”, meaning once they are inserted into your shoe they do not move at all through your gait cycle.  Whether they are hard plastic conformed insoles that are custom made, or even over-the-counter insoles with a foam footbed that degrades relatively quickly, they all essentially to not move with the foot in a conforming manner through your gait cycle. 

There is however, a new groundbreaking product in the insole arena called SelectFlex that does exactly this through their VRB technology and PowerLiftArch™ system.  SelectFlex is the first dynamic insole that lifts your arch into alignment with each and every step from 3 Arch support levels.

The PowerLiftArch™ has 3 selectable arch support settings, with setting#1 providing 10 lbs. of arch lift per step, setting#2: 14 lbs. and setting#3: 18 lbs. This is significant when multiplied over one mile or 2,000 steps:

  • Setting#1: 2,000 steps X 10 lbs = 20,000 lbs of arch support per mile
  • Setting#2: 2,000 steps X 14 lbs = 28,000 lbs of arch support per mile
  • Setting#3: 2,000 steps X 18 lbs = 36,000 lbs of arch support per mile

This unique dynamic insole provides continuous lifting arch alignment with every step to promote lower extremity health, reduced overuse injuries, less pain and refreshed feet at the end of a long day standing at work.

If you are on your feet all day, stand for long periods of time for work or looking for enhanced athletic performance & reduced recovery time, SelectFlex delivers daily and long term benefits.  A recent multi-phase study measured the PowerLiftArch delivering up to 89% more arch support. This means your foot is kept in ideal comfort and healthy alignment, with more arch deformation control.

In addition to this benefit, the patented heel PowerCup™ cradles the heel with up to 50% more ankle stability that provides balance and sure stride, with a super soft elastomer shock absorbing heel.

When the body is in alignment, it requires less energy and wear and tear to move. SelectFlex lifting arch insoles were designed to keep you in greater alignment and less pain, especially if your feet pronate or roll inwards like 80% of the population.

A recent University survey showed participants in the performance studies loved the ability to customize arch support with 3 different settings and valued the comfort of the adjustable insole molding to their foot arch.  After long walks, the comfort felt from the active arch control with each step gave SelectFlex an 82% comfort rating for everyday wear.  SelectFlex insoles are as effective as custom made orthotics, at 1/4 the cost.

YOUR UGGS NEED EXTRA SUPPORT

YOUR UGGS NEED EXTRA SUPPORT

I love my UGGS!  The comfy feeling I get slipping them on makes my whole body feel good.  The feel of the fur against my feet, ankles and calf reminds me of when I put on mittens to go outside on a snowy day.  I wear them casually to run my errands as well as formally to compliment my cutest outfit when out with my girls.  Honestly, if my husband would let me, I would even consider sleeping in my UGGS.  Plain and simple, UGGS are awesome (UGGS Homepage).

However, the one thing they lack is good arch support.  I do a lot of walking and by the end of the day my feet and legs are tired.  Although I wear orthotic inserts in other shoes, I never really considered them for my UGGS.  This was mostly because I thought it might interfere with that “comfy” feeling I get every time I slip on those wonderful boots.  The comparison that I drew in my mind was putting orthotic insoles into my UGGS would be like putting orthotics into my slippers.

BUT BOY WAS I WRONG!  Not only were the insoles really easy to slip in but I could instantly feel the difference in support that they give my arch.  I think the roominess of the UGGS compliments the use of an orthotic insole.  There is plenty of room for the insole and my feet do not feel cramped inside the boot.  The best part is that my UGGS remained as comfortable as ever and provided me with arch support.  Once I inserted the insoles, I found that having proper arch support made my legs and feet feel more invigorated even after a long day walking around. 

I highly recommend inserting insoles In your UGGS to achieve proper foot care.  If you are lack proper arch support it can lead to the following conditions (Better Health):

• Arthritis
• Bursitis
• Flat feet
• Heel spurs
• Injuries
• Back pain
• Bunions
• Diabetes
• Hammer toes
• High arches
• Plantar fasciitis

You will need to consider your arch type (flat, mid, high) to pick the right inserts when wearing your UGGS.  It is also important to think about how often you will wear your UGGS, since you want a sturdier insert if you wear them daily and for extended periods of time.  These factors will help determine which inserts are the right choice for you. One of the best options includes customizable arch support shoe inserts like SelectFlex.  These orthotic insoles are not typical shoe inserts, as they offer customizeable arch support through their patented PowerLift Arch® suspension system.

Now is the time to make sure that wearing your UGGS is the perfect experience with proper arch support, and you can do that for your feet with SelectFlex Arch Control Insoles. This allows for optimal support and comfort with every step that you take. Along with good routine foot care, you can significantly reduce your risk of serious foot problems.
