Formthotics™ are thermoformed (heat moulded) at relatively low temperatures. They can be moulded and re moulded for maximum control and comfort. Due to the 3D Milling and the unique attributes of the Formax™ foam, they retain their new shape (even after intense use and re-heating) to ensure lasting total support.
Thermoforming optimises the performance of the Formthotic creating a close fit with the foot and the shoe. This provides greater biomechanical control, good functional support, immediate comfort and stabilisation of the foot and lower limbs.
In comparison most other foam orthotics are compression moulded Ethylene Vinyl Acetate foam (EVA). The heating and compression moulding manufacturing process alters the EVA cell structure which prevents it from holding a new shape when fitted to a customer, and forces it to go back to the original manufactured shape.
