Doctor-prescribed for perfect fit
CUSTOM-FIT FOR COMFORT

The SDO is a revolutionary prescription shoe arch support. When it comes to fit, precision is the key word. The SDO is scientifically calibrated to to fit and work as if it is part of your foot, using a special silicone fluid. Unlike liquid arch supports sold over the counter in many shoe and sporting good stores, the SDO is precision fit for maximum benefit. SDO is possibly the most accurate foot support made today.

Your condition will actually improve as you walk!


WHY YOU NEED THE SILICONE DYNAMIC ORTHOTIC

You'll probably walk over 10,000 miles in your lifetime. Your muscles, tendons and joints will be stretched to the limit with every step, resulting in too much arch motion. This can result in bad foot and spinal alignment. SDO is designed to absorb this arch motion while preventing excessive movement.

Just as driving your car with poor alignment can cause uneven wear on your tires, walking on feet that are not well balanced to the ground can result in uneven wear.

    HOW DOES THE SILICONE DYNAMIC ORTHOTIC WORK?

    Using the scientific principle of fluid mechanics to "move to the area of least resistance and greatest need," the SDO uses a precise amount of fluid to fill the arch and gently support your body, correcting foot and spinal alignment as you walk. The SDO takes pressure off from the feet to the low back and hip. As flexibility increases, a prescription change will sustain the improved position.

    LOW BACK/HIP PAIN

    Although your two feet are nearly identical, they do not work exactly alike. The body tries to compensate for this difference by slowly rotating the hip on one side, pulling the leg further into the hip socket. This is called a "functional shortage". In addition, the lower end of the spine is "tweaked". By realigning the body the SDO takes pressure off the areas that are hurting in the low back and hip.


    WHO BENEFITS FROM THE SILICONE DYNAMIC ORTHOTIC?

    Athletes - The SDO is so effective in enhancing performance and preventing injuries that both amateur and professional athletes use the device.

    Seniors - Because the SDO takes pressure off the joints, it reduces inflammation and minimizes the effects of degenerative joint arthritis, diabetic ulcers, calluses and other conditions.

    Children - As children grow, the feet can already show signs of being out of balance. Parents should be aware of these tell-tale signs of foot problems: Leg cramps, avoidance of sports, postural pain, or walking intolerance. By wearing the SDO at an early age, a lifetime of problems may be averted.

    All others - If you are beginning to experience foot pain, don't ignore it. The pain may go away temporarily, but later settle elsewhere in your body. The SDO will allow you to walk without symptoms indefinitely and may prevent surgery in the future.
