PRODUCT QUESTIONS

What are Docpods® orthotic innersoles made from?

Docpods® orthotic innersoles are made form high quality antibacterial treated ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA). EVA is firm enough to offer support and flexible enough to be comfortable.
 

Who needs Docpods® orthotic innersoles?

Anyone who suffers from foot pains as listed in our foot pain index should try a pair of Docpods® orthotic innersoles. Docpods® innersoles also improve the comfort of pain free feet.
 

How long do Docpods® orthotic innersoles last?

Docpods® orthotic innersoles have been engineered to last for approximately 12 months. At this point the materials of the orthotic begins to loose their supportive properties and the innersoles lose their effectiveness.
 

How should I care for my Docpods® innersoles?

You can wash you Docpods® innersoles by hand with warm soapy water. Do not put then in the washing machine or the clothes dryer.

Do Docpods® orthotic innersoles cause foot irritation?

Docpods® orthotic innersoles flexible enough to cause very minimal foot irritation. If some arch irritation does occur wear the innersoles in like you would a new pair of shoes, a few hours per day and increase this over 7-10 days.

What shoes can Docpods® orthotic innersoles fit into?

This depends on the style of Docpods® orthotic innersole you have chosen.Generally the slimline innersole is ideal for ladies fashion shoes and almost all shoes. The 3 quarter innersole is great for sports shoes and work shoes while the Docpods® sports is perfect for roomy shoes.
 

How often should wear my Docpods® orthotic innersoles?

Docpods® orthotic innersoles are like prescription glasses. When you are not wearing them they are not working. The more you wear your Docpods® orthotic innersoles the more benefits you will gain from them and the less foot pain you will feel.
 

When should I seek professional help?

The most common cause of foot pain comes from a mechanical cause, however sometimes foot pain can be caused by blood flow problems, viral illness and malignancy. If you symptoms do not reduce with the use of Docpods® orthotic innersoles after more than 6 weeks we strongly recommend contacting your local podiatrist or general medical practitioner.

How can Docpods® orthotic innersole help both high and low arched feet?

Mechanical foot pain is generally caused by either rolling in too much (most common) or not rolling in enough. Rolling in too much (over pronation) causes muscles and joints to become overworked as a rolled in position is a very inefficient position for the foot to function in. However some amount of rolling in is necessary to cushion the impact of walking. Not rolling in enough can cause an increase in forces to be transferred through the foot, knee, hip and lower back.Docpods® orthotic innersoles help to both control rolling in through arch support and also cushion the impact of walking through their soft construction and added heel cushioning. This makes docpods® orthotic innersoles perfect for both high and low arches.

Wearing in your Orthotics

Now it’s time to take the next step and get them under your feet.

If you haven’t worn orthotics before, you might want to ease into them.

Orthotics change the way your foot functions and therefore will require a wearing-in period.

Begin by wearing your orthotics for 1-2 hours on the first day.

Orthotics should initially be worn 1-2 hours per day

Increase the time by 1-2 hours every day until they can be worn all day.

Occasionally, there may be some discomfort in the legs or back during the adjustment period. This is due to the newly aligned position of your body, and your muscles will take some time to get used to it. If this occurs, cut back the adjustment time by 30 minutes each day.

Only progress through the wearing-in procedure to your tolerance (don’t overdo it).

After about a week you’ll be ready to keep them on your feet all day every day!

When fitting either Ultra, Ultra Soft or Sports Docpods Orthotics, please ensure you remove all existing innersoles from your shoes where possible.

To make sure you are getting the ultimate comfort, ensure that the arch support of the Docpods Orthotic innersoles finishes just after the ball of your foot.
