Work and Safety

When the going gets tough, the tough get comfortable

  • Keep your mind on the job, not on tiring feet
  • Improve the fit and comfort of work boots
  • Minimise the impact from hard work surfaces
  • Reduce pain in joints, tendons and muscles
  • Support your feet naturally

You are a hard worker in an active job. Many hours are spent on hard surfaces, surfaces that our feet are not well adapted well for, often standing or walking with work boots that can be heavy or lacking support, such as gumboots.

Formthotics™ are lightweight, durable and waterproof – they are there to back you up when it is time to get tough.

Industry Formthotics™ are specifically designed to reduce shock and provide comfort, cushioning and stability so that you can get the job done with greater ease.

Mechanical efficiency

The heel and arch is well supported and body weight is spread evenly over the sole of the foot reducing fatigue and improving comfort. The heel is cupped ensuring consistent support around it's entire boarder improving feedback and stability. The foot maintains a stable position for effective forward movement reducing stress and overload on joints, and soft tissues.

The foot is not supported within the boot and is excessively pronating (rolling inwards), and the lower limb and knee internally rotate. The medial column of the foot (big toe column) sustains significant loading pressure, as do the soft tissue structures of the arch, reducing efficient forward motion and increasing the risk of overuse injury.

Need help to treat pain?

Formthotics can help with pain in the feet, knee, hip and lower back. It is important that you are assessed by a medical professional who can help get you working comfortably all day long.

Formthotics are often part of a treatment plan which can include expert customisation of your Formthotics, strengthening exercises and a change in lifestyle habbits. These changes will help you get better, sooner, manage continued exercise while injured and improve your technique to help prevent further injury in the future.
