Shapes

The Original Formthotics™ shape is unique. This unique shape is achieved through our superior manufacturing process.

Formthotics™ are 3D milled from a block of foam, not compressed or injection moulded like many other foam orthotics. This ensures the foam structure remains consistent and does not have compressed thick areas associated with compression moulded foam, and the foam still has the ability to be moulded.

Our unique shape incorporates a deep heel cup. This is formed by milling the teardrop shape into the bottom surface of the foam providing 3D support around the calcaneus (heel). This shape also assists with more accurate fitting to both to the foot and the shoe.

The unique arch support is also achieved by milling the material from the lateral (outside) edge. This builds support on the medial (inside) edge and provides longitudinal, lateral and transverse arch support under the metatarsal heads.

We have developed a number of variations to this shape for different needs in different market situations.
