BioPed Introduces a New Cost Effective Foot Pain Solution!

A large number of Canadians suffer from foot pain at some point during their lifetime and will scramble desperately to find a foot pain solution. Whether it be due to long days spent standing at work, flat feet, pregnancy, arthritis or one of many other foot conditions. Foot pain can most often be relieved with a combination of proper footwear along with a pair of custom made orthotics. For some, however, the cost of orthotics may be prohibitive and yet a drug store off the shelf insole simply isn’t effective enough at relieving the pain.

We have a solution! At BioPed, we’re happy to introduce a NEW intermediate product called the “Be Active Tailored Footbed.” This product does not replace the truly custom orthotic, but is a great alternative for patients requiring pain relief on a budget. The Be Active Tailored Footbed is heat moldable to fit the contours of your foot and can be modified to include features that best address your foot condition. This may include features such as additional support to correct for arch and heel pain, additional padding to relieve pain under the ball of the foot and features to relieve pressure and pain from bunions. After a full 45 minute biomechanical assessment, one of BioPed’s Clinical Specialists will determine the most appropriate features for you.

For those with occasional footwear such as cleats, golf shoes, skates, ski boots and gardening shoes, who wish to have some additional support, BioPed also offers two further solutions. These include a supportive off the shelf insole as well as a heat moldable insole to contour the foot and provide additional comfort and pain relief.

  • Your Feet Could Be To Blame for Ankle, Knee or Hip Pain!

    You probably recall the childhood song – “the foot bone’s connected to the ankle bone, the ankle bone’s connected to the leg bone…” While this may have been a broad simplification, there is great truth in this elementary school tune. The human body is like an integrated chain reaction. This means that when one body part is working optimally – others will often follow. When one joint or muscle moves, it creates a chain of reactions in the associated muscles and joints. Poor mobility, improper posture or inactivity due to injury or surgery can cause significant pain in the affected joint or muscle but it can also create discomfort in other distant body parts. ...

    Orthotics in the Workplace

    For individuals in the workforce, increased time spent on their feet can be quite fatiguing.  Often employment positions in sales, service and factory work requires individuals to stand and/or walk for eight to twelve hours a day, three to six consecutive days a week.  Eventually the demands placed on the body leave the worker with sore and achy feet and legs, especially by the end of the day.  Unfortunately for those suffering from plantar fasciitis, they may also experience pain first thing in the morning. Rest is often part of the solution, but not always practical. ...

    Custom Orthotics

    Next time you put on your favourite shoes, take a moment to check out the insoles. Often times, you’ll find there’s not a lot in there!

When you purchase insoles from a pharmacy or department store, chances are very high that they are not a perfect match for your feet. Although there are some products that claim to be “custom fit,” this is not the same as custom made. Continue reading to learn more about custom orthotics and how they can help you....
