There’s More To Our Orthotics Than Arch Support

Technological advancements have led to drastic improvements in nearly every field of medicine, helping people live longer, healthier, and more comfortable lives. However, people just like you are still using the same conventional shoe inserts that are based on a philosophy and design from more than 100 years ago.

Now, in an age where technology has enhanced nearly every other form of medical treatment, Mechanical Medicine has developed a new breed of orthotics that tear down the outdated concept of “arch support” while revolutionizing your movement, pain relief, and athletic performance.

Why Your Feet Matter

Your feet are the literal foundation of your entire body. They bear your weight and are core components in the body’s movement. The gait cycle (also known as the beginning of the stride) starts when the heel of one foot contacts the ground and ends when that same foot hits the ground again. This is often the starting point of the kinetic chain, which, in biomechanics, represents how ground reaction forces travel from the foot through every connected muscle, joint, and bone.

Without true mechanical alignment, these forces can impact the body in damaging ways. Since the foot is the starting point, you need to know about its key structural elements and how they influence movement before forces transfer up the kinetic chain to the knees, hips, and back. This will help you understand just how important proper alignment is to the human body. Let’s take you through it one step at a time.

No Two Feet Are The Same

Although virtually everyone has those joints, symptoms and pain can occur at any point of the gait cycle and will vary from person to person as forces move up the kinetic chain to the knees, hips, and back. This variation has shown a need for an adjustable device beyond insoles that can effectively control the ground reaction forces impacting the body.

It’s Not Just Any Orthotic, It’s Your Orthotic.

We recognized that the transfer of energy throughout the body should be fluid, and this became a key aspect of our philosophy. It’s also one of the main reasons why we developed the SelnerTX™ for consumers. The biggest problem with most of today’s custom insoles is that they are based on the outdated concept of arch support, and they’re made from inferior materials that don’t stand up to constant use or pounding.

Arches, by nature, are designed to support static, non-moving objects like doorways. When you move, the arches of your feet shift, rendering that type of insole ineffective and often painful. In order to maintain the most efficient kinetic chain and enhance your movement, you need a highly durable, adjustable device that can adapt to dynamic conditions and keep you mechanically aligned no matter how you’re moving.
