One of the biggest advantages of the Aurelka ORTO® footwear is that the orthopaedic qualities of the shoes are introduced through only minor modifications to the sole or the insole, the upper of the shoe remaining unaltered.
The material used in manufacturing of our outsoles is the Italian-made Vibram® rubber, allowing for production of simple treads of exceptional plasticity. Its structure serves as a support for the corrective elements, which align the foot in the right position.
It results in only slight elevation of the heel in relation to the toes. The heel is fitted in the sole.
This corrective element is commonly used in the treatment of:knock-knees (genu valgum), flexible flatfoot (pes planovalgus)
Reverse Thomas Heel
The application of reverse Thomas heel results in rising the hindfoot in relation to the forefoot; additionally, it adjusts slightly the position of the outer edge of the foot in relation to the medial axis. The heel is fitted in the sole.
This corrective element is commonly used in the treatment of:
varus knee, clubfoot (talipes)
