SDO Custom-Fluid Shock Absorbers For Your Feet
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.
Custom-fit, Comfortable to Wear, Fits in
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.
