Problem area ‘foot’
Hard grounds, standing work, high heels and narrow shoes can eventually lead to foot disorders. We would like to provide you with an overview of the three main problem areas of the foot and tell you which pedag insoles are ideal to pamper your feet.
1. Problem area ‘longitudinal arch’
Do you suffer from pain in the inner edge of the foot? This could be the symptom of a flat foot. A flat foot condition is the consequence of a lowered or fallen longitudinal arch. pedag’s foot supports will make your feet regain their natural balance.
Solution 1: The VIVA® Family foot supports help to prevent the creation of a flat foot condition and can relief from minor ailments. They support the longitudinal arch and make it regain its anatomically correct position.

2. Problem area ‘forefoot’
Do your feet feel tired? Do they burn or are they sensitive to pressure? Do you suffer from forefoot pain? These symptoms are usually the consequence of a fallen metatarsal arch, also called splayfoot. Wearing high heels can aggravate this condition, as in these shoes most of the weight is born by the forefoot. However, pedag’s metatarsal pads can provide relief.

3. Problem area ‘heel’
The third and last problem area of the foot is the heel. It has to tolerate a lot: both heels bear about 65 to 75 % of the body weight. Overloading the heels can cause pain that is usually aggravated by concrete-hard grounds.
Solution 1: All foot supports of the VIVA® Family have heel pads that relieve the heels, spinal column and joints.
Solution 2: If the constant overload has already led to the creation of a heel spur, our heel spur cushion pedag POINT PLUS provides relief. The anatomical shape of the pad absorbs the body’s weight and the extra soft zone cushions the heel spur thus keeping the pain down.
