Hello, good afternoon, 
My patients that are sportsmen and women often ask if they can wash their insoles. 
Is there any kind of specific care required for looking after, washing and extending the life of insoles? 

Good afternoon,  There is a technical lining called SINOLTEX that helps to make insoles more durable as its main feature is that it repels sweat and consequently the upper lining will not deteriorate, get wet or damp, or smell bad.

Good afternoon, 

There is a technical lining called SINOLTEX that helps to make insoles more durable as its main feature is that it repels sweat and consequently the upper lining will not deteriorate, get wet or damp, or smell bad. If this technical lining gets dirty or smells bad, or if it is an EVA lining and the same thing happens, I recommend that your patients clean it with a damp cloth with a few drops of soap, or with a wet wipe, and leave it to dry in the open air. Doing this once a week would be enough.  

In any case, NEVER machine wash, tumble dry, or use direct heat such as a hair-dryer. 

If the problems persists despite this care, get in touch with our technical department. 

Thanks a lot, and I hope we have solved your query. 

Hi, good afternoon,

I have a diabetic patient who has cavus foot. They came to my practice because they suffered from painful feet at the end of the day working in the country. On examination, the tendons were noticeable, resembling taut guitar strings.

All that they wanted were insoles for rest.

Good afternoon,
In the case of this kind of patients with diabetes, the mechanical characteristics of their foot call for a functional insole with materials with greater mechanical strength (plastics). I recommend using a softer combination for the upper lining with more cushioning so that the first sensation for the patient is one of comfort. 

The materials that you can combine are 2 upper linings such as an intermediate layer of polyurethane (Poron) and an upper one of Plastazote. You must take the thickness into consideration; not so thick as to create rubbing or pressure at the front of the footwear. 

Don’t forget that another machined material exists, namely POLYURETHANE. You could use it lined with Plastazote for this kind of patients if corrective foot orthoses are not required. As you will be aware, it is recommended for this kind of patients due to its low resistance, which means that the whole insole has greater cushioning from impacts, and there is better dispersion of the plantar pressure. 

I hope my answer has helped you. 

Good afternoon, I’ve been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and I have the physical tests for the national police in 20 days. I’d like to know what method you recommend or if there are any foot orthoses that might help me. I’m from Malaga. Regards

Good afternoon Ruben, 

If you have been diagnosed with PLANTAR FASCIITIS, at Biomech Consulting we understand that you have a pain on the sole of your foot on the inner side of your heel or even in the inner arch, and that this was the diagnosis of a healthcare professional. A characteristic of plantar fasciitis is that it hurts as soon as you wake up when you put your foot on the floor; as the foot warms up (by walking), it hurts less, and when it cools down the intense pain returns. 

If you feel pain in those places, you should go to a specialist podiatry clinic for a complete BIOMECHANICAL STUDY to determine THE CAUSE of your plantar fasciitis and get a fully bespoke treatment for it. You should probably also go to other professionals to achieve a more speedy recovery such as a physiotherapist and combine both treatments (functional insoles and physiotherapy) to get better as quickly as possible. 

It is important to distinguish plantar fasciitis from a possible calcaneal spur; these pathologies may exist independently in one or both feet, or in combination. The treatment would be different, so it is important to make this aspect clear. 

Biomech Consulting can help you by recommending some of our customers in the area where you live that use our technology and insoles so that you can recover as soon as possible. 

Regards

Hi, I wanted information about the prices of the insoles and the steps to follow to send you a treatment…would the phenolic foam and the details of the patient with the description of the pathology be enough? I would be interested in offering my patients this service as at the moment I don’t have a workshop where I can perform these treatments. Thanks.
