Ortho Active 303 Intercept Heel Cushions
Orthotics & Supports
Walking, jumping, and exercising all exerts pressure on the heel, which is the first point of contact between the surface and the body. The pressure then extends to the legs, the knees, and then upwards and onwards. The heels absorb the shock and tone it down, reducing the amount of force and pressure that reaches the joints.
The heel pad by OrthoActive features a gel-filling that provides substantial cushioning to the heel and keeps the heel pain-free. It also adds another layer of shock-absorbent material to the foot, making it ideal for joint pain. The pad features raised grooves that reduce stress from pressure points in the heel. They also help distribute the body weight a little more evenly to keep the user comfortable.
The gel-filling also keeps the feet at a comfortable temperature as it absorbs not only shock but also temperature. The pad adds a little extra height to the heel as well as shortening the Achilles tendon. If you are suffering from tendonitis or have pain in the muscle or tendon, a heel pad might be perfect for you.
The pad's design allows it to absorb a substantial amount of pressure, alleviating heel pain for the user. If you suffer from heel pad syndrome because of substantial wear and tear in your muscle heel tissue, the resultant inflammation can make standing or walking substantially difficult. You need a heel pad to prevent the situation from getting worse.
The Ortho active intercept heel cushion can help you carry on with daily life as comfortably as possible. Even if you do not suffer from any medical condition that warrants the use of heel pads, we suggest you start using one, especially when doing high impact exercises.
