CORRECTIONS 

One of the biggest advantages of the AurelkaORTO® footwear is that the orthopedic features of the shoes are introduced only through minor modifications of the sole or the insole. The upper of the shoe remains unaltered. The material used in manufacturing of our outsoles is the Italian-made Vibram® rubber.  Its structure supports corrective elements that align the foot in the right position and provides exceptional plasticity

Thomas Heel

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)

Genu valgum, known as knock-knees, is a knee misalignment that turns your knees inward. When people with knock-knees stand up with their knees together, there’s a gap of 3 inches or more between their ankles. This is because their knees are bent so far inward.

Pes planus, or a flexible flat foot, is when the arch seems to disappear when the foot comes in contact with the ground. As the arch disappears, the ankle rolls inward. This ankle position is called pronation.

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)

 

Varus knee is a condition that’s commonly referred to as genu varum. It’s what causes some people to be bowlegged. It happens when your tibia, the larger bone in your shin, turns inward instead of aligning with your femur, the large bone in your thigh. This causes your knees to turn outward.

Clubfoot, also known as talipes equinovarus (TEV), is a common foot abnormality, in which the foot points downward and inward.

Modified Thomas Heel

Modified Thomas heel in an optional version. It is used in treating the tilting of the lower leg axis outwards from the medial axis. The thickness of the heel may vary depending on the orthopedist’s recommendation. 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)

Overpronation means that your foot rolls inward as you move. If you overpronate, the outer edge of your heel hits the ground first, and then your foot rolls inward onto the arch. Pronation refers to the flattening of your feet. So, if you overpronate, you overly flatten your feet.

Genu valgum, known as knock-knees, is a knee misalignment that turns your knees inward. When people with knock-knees stand up with their knees together, there’s a gap of 3 inches or more between their ankles. This is because their knees are bent so far inward.

Pes planus, or a flexible flat foot, is when the arch seems to disappear when the foot comes in contact with the ground. As the arch disappears, the ankle rolls inward. This ankle position is called pronation.

Modified Reverse Thomas Heel

It works just like modified Thomas heel only in reverse. It aligns the shin inwards from the medial axis. The heel is fitted in the sole. The pronating heel is elevated on the outside. The thickness of the heel may vary depending on the orthopedist’s recommendation.

This corrective element is commonly used in the treatment of: varus knee, clubfoot (talipes)

Varus knee is a condition that’s commonly referred to as genu varum. It’s what causes some people to be bowlegged. It happens when your tibia, the larger bone in your shin, turns inward instead of aligning with your femur, the large bone in your thigh. This causes your knees to turn outward.

Clubfoot, also known as talipes equinovarus (TEV), is a common foot abnormality, in which the foot points downward and inward.

Reinforced Counter

This element introduces significant elevation to the standard counter (in prophylactic footwear the heel counter does not exceed in height the level of the Achilles’ tendon). The counter is made of an extremely rigid material, which makes it work as a corset.

This corrective element is commonly used in the treatment of: Cerebral palsy, joint and foot muscle flaccidity

 

Flaccidity – muscular weakness or paralysis in which a muscle becomes soft and yields to passive stretching, which results from loss of all or practically all peripheral motor nerves that innervated the muscle.

Hindfoot Supination of the shoe. Used to correct foot pronation, flat feet.

This correction involves elevation of the medial edge of the foot. As the name suggests - it concerns hindfoot only. It may be incorporated into the sole or fitted inside the shoe - in the insole. The level of supination may vary depending on doctor’s recommendation.

This corrective element is commonly used in the treatment of: flexible flatfoot, valgus knees 

 

 

Genu valgum, known as knock-knees, is a knee misalignment that turns your knees inward. When people with knock-knees stand up with their knees together, there’s a gap of 3 inches or more between their ankles. This is because their knees are bent so far inward.

Pes planus, or a flexible flat foot, is when the arch seems to disappear when the foot comes in contact with the ground. As the arch disappears, the ankle rolls inward. This ankle position is called pronation.

The hindfoot, sometimes also referred to as the rearfoot, is the posterior region of the human foot as differentiated from the midfoot and the forefoot. 

Hindfoot Pronation of the shoe. Used to correct foot supination, club foot.

This is the reverse of hindfoot supination of the shoe (underpronation). It involves position change of the lateral edge of the foot with respect to the medial axis. It may be incorporated into the sole or fitted inside the shoe - in the insole. The level of the correction may vary depending on doctor’s recommendation. It concerns hindfoot only.

This corrective element is commonly used in the treatment of:
clubfoot, varus knees (genu varum)

 

Varus knee is a condition that’s commonly referred to as genu varum. It’s what causes some people to be bowlegged. It happens when your tibia, the larger bone in your shin, turns inward instead of aligning with your femur, the large bone in your thigh. This causes your knees to turn outward.

The hindfoot, sometimes also referred to as the rearfoot, is the posterior region of the human foot as differentiated from the midfoot and the forefoot.

Medial (inner side of the foot) Wedge to correct foot pronation, flat feet.

The wedge may be incorporated into the sole or fitted inside the shoe - in the insole. Its length and height may vary. It involves elevation of the medial edge of the foot. The wedge fitted inside AurelkaORTO® footwear cannot exceed 1 cm in height (in open shoes) and 0.5 cm (in closed forefoot shoes). The wedge built into the sole of both open and closed footwear may vary in height depending on doctor’s recommendation.

This corrective element is commonly used in the treatment of: flexible flatfoot, valgus knees

Genu valgum, known as knock-knees, is a knee misalignment that turns your knees inward. When people with knock-knees stand up with their knees together, there’s a gap of 3 inches or more between their ankles. This is because their knees are bent so far inward.

Lateral (outer side of the foot) Wedge to correct foot supination, clubfoot.

The aim of the correction is to change the position of the lateral (outer) edge of the foot in relation to the medial (inner) edge. The modification may be incorporated into the sole or fitted inside the shoe. It involves elevation of the lateral edge of the foot. Its height and length may vary. When fitted inside AurelkaORTO® footwear the wedge cannot exceed 1 cm in height (in open shoes) and 0.5 cm (in closed forefoot shoes). The wedge built into the sole of both open and closed footwear may vary in height depending on doctor’s recommendation.

This corrective element is commonly used in the treatment of: clubfoot, varus knees (genu varum), forefoot adduction

 

.

Varus knee is a condition that’s commonly referred to as genu varum. It’s what causes some people to be bowlegged. It happens when your tibia, the larger bone in your shin, turns inward instead of aligning with your femur, the large bone in your thigh. This causes your knees to turn outward.

Clubfoot, also known as talipes equinovarus (TEV), is a common foot abnormality, in which the foot points downward and inward.

Forefoot adduction is a common condition between metatarsus adductus, Z-shaped foot and residual clubfoot. This deformity is located in a pure transverse plane at Lisfranc's joint. Isolated metatarsus adductus is corrected spontaneously for the majority of newborns.
