Designed by Australian podiatrist Phillip Vasyli, Orthaheel footwear and orthotics help restore natural foot function and well-being with every step.
Our feet were designed to walk on soft, natural surfaces like soil and sand. Yet today we spend most of our time standing, walking and running on unnatural, hard surfaces.
This loss of our "footprint" has resulted in a variety of pain and injuries affecting not just the feet, but the entire body. Unnatural surfaces force our feet to pronate (roll over) to gain ground contact, which flattens the arches and can disrupt normal knee function and hip alignment and increase pressure on the lower back.
Clinical and practical research has resulted in the unique Orthaheel orthotic design that helps "reclaim" your natural footprint by restoring the foot's natural (neutral) alignment, enabling the feet, ankles and legs to function as efficiently and dynamically as they were intended. Orthaheel's unique orthotic is built-in to the Orthaheel collection of sandals, slippers and athletic shoes, and it is also available as an insert for your own footwear.
Orthaheel products are available in more than 25 countries worldwide, garnering customer acclaim since 1979. The collection offers orthotic footbeds, lounge slippers, athletic shoes and sandals for men and women.
Orthaheel products are ideal for:
"It is my experience that many common aches and pains occur from poor lower limb alignment alignment. Pain relief can be natural and affordable for everyone." -- quote from Phillip J. Vasyli, Chairman of Vasyli International and creator of Orthaheel
Tri-Planar Motion Control
Tri-Planar motion control is an attribute in Orthaheel footwear that helps reduce pronation by providing biomechanical support and stability along the three planes of motion.
Pronation can result from poor foot alignment along the three cardinal planes of motion: frontal, sagittal and transverse. Orthaheel's Tri-Planar Motion Control system provides biomechanically designed support and stability to help regain dynamic foot function.
