Bauerfeind ViscoPed Shock Reducing Insoles – Latex Free

October 8, 2008

The ViscoPed insole from Bauerfeind is the original full-length insole designed to aid in targeted relief of metatarsal pain (pain under the ball of the foot), tired, aching feet, sore knee joints and back pain. ViscoPed does not contain latex.

Viscoped Advantages

  • Full-length viscoelastic insoles incorporating areas of softer density in the heel and metatarsal region
  • Raised metatarsal pad aids in desired realignment of metatarsal heads
  • Slight contouring of the arch for gentle support
  • Provides shock load reduction throughout the entire length of the insole
  • Ventilation holes allow for air circulation to combat heat build-up
  • Five sizes may be easily trimmed for optimum fit
  • Always available in pairs to prevent leg length discrepancies, Viscoped may be easily converted from one shoe to the next
  • Viscoelastic medical-grade silicone provides peak shock load reduction to ankle, knee and hip joints

Viscoped can be used to treat:

  • Metatarsalgia- A general term for irritation of the metatarsals; aching pain in the metatarsal bones of the foot result from anatomical changes in their alignment.
  • Fat pad atrophy- Also known by “thinning of the fat pad”, this condition is characterized by a decrease in the size, or wasting away of the layer of body fat that is normally present to protect the metatarsal phalangeal heads; can also occur in the heel.
  • Foot pain (plantar pain) * Pressure redistribution
  • Diabetic foot- Frequently results from neuropathy, or nerve damage, in the feet which can lead to a dulling or loss of sensation, making one unable to feel pain, heat or cold; Viscoped should be worn only in non-ulcerative conditions.
  • Morton’s neuroma- An irritation that is caused by compression of a branch of the plantar nerve between the heads of the metatarsal bones and sometimes occurs when the second toe is larger than the big toe.
  • Back and joint pain
  • Hyperkerastosis- Thickening of the outer layer of skin. It may occur as an inherited disorder, affecting the soles of the feet.
  • Splayfoot- A condition in which the feet are abnormally flattened out.
  • Forefoot and toe deformitiesBauerfeind

Air Stirrup Ankle Brace

July 30, 2008


Since 1978, the Aircast Air-Stirrup Ankle Brace has been the “standard of care” for the functional management of ankle injuries and has been cited in over 100 medical journals for its superior performance in helping to heal ankle injuries.

Each Aircast Ankle Brace features anatomically designed shells lined with the patented Duplex aircell system. This exclusive system incorporates two pre-inflated overlapping aircells, distal and proximal, that provide support and produce graduated compression during ambulation. The compression promotes efficient edema reduction in addition to helping accelerate rehabilitation.
All Air-Stirrup Ankle Braces (except for the pediatric model) come with a patient guide providing information on brace application and optional rehabilitation exercises.
