MODIFICATIONS:

1. Shoe is flat inside. Can be used with the purpose of adding orthopedic insert.

2.  Arch support 8 mm inside the shoe.

3. Shoe elevation (wedge) to correct pronation (rolling inwardly) 1cm unless specified otherwise.

NOTE: We can make different heights of elevation on different feet or only on one foot if necessary. In that case please specify which foot.

Here is an example what can be done for PRONATION

                                         

  4. Shoe elevation (wedge) to correct supination (rolling outwardly) 1cm unless specified otherwise. Please look at the Pronation example above. The same idea to correct supination but the elevation(wedge) will be on the other side  of the shoe.

NOTE: We can make different heights of elevation on different feet or only on one foot if necessary. In that case please specify which foot.

  5. Prophylactic shoe without brace-like support.  In this case the shoes can  be used as profilactic/supportive shoes for healthy feet. They can be used to prevent  or correct i.e. flat feet.

Memo Orthopedic Shoes

Diagnostic and corrective footwear for children

Unique and rich design of medical footwear available together with a system of corrective insoles; the sole of the shoe consists of a system capable of diagnosing certain foot disorders that commonly appear amongst children and the shoe itself possesses a system of correcting those disorders.

MEMO's control area is the sole and the heel. Heels and soles are divided into six numbered zones. Your child has to wear MEMO orthopedic shoes for a number of days. After that period it is possible to observe the degree to which stripes located in all the abrasive zones have deteriorated. The level of deterioration in particular abrasive zones corresponds to different foot dysfunctions and is indicative of appropriate actions that need to be taken. There are six possible alternatives:

Variant 1
Abrasion in zone 1(the heel)- normal zone - healthy feet CONGRATULATIONS!MEMO performs its prophylactic and monitoring function.Your MEMO shoes may be used as normal footwear.

Variant 2
Abrasion in zone 2 (the heel) - risk zone - there is a danger of a minor abnormality developing into a dysfunction. It is necessary to apply the gray MEMO corrective insole while wearing MEMO orthopedic shoes at all times (at home, kindergarten, or school), In time the abnormality should retreat and the abrasion return to normal zone 1. If abnormality persists, application of the orange MEMO corrective insole is necessary. If the abrasion does not return to normal zone 1, please consult your family physician.

Variant 3
Abrasion in zone 3 (the heel) - dysfunction zone - indicates foot and/or knee defect. It is necessary to apply the orange MEMO corrective insole while wearing MEMO orthopedic shoes at all times (at home, kindergarten, or school). In time abnormality should retreat and the abrasion return to normal zone 1. If abnormality persists, please, consult your family physician.

Variant 4
Abrasion in zone 3 (the heel) and zone 4 (the sole) - serious dysfunction zone - indicates foot and/or knee defect. It is necessary to apply the orange MEMO corrective insole while wearing MEMO orthopedic shoes at all times (at home, kindergarten, or school). You also need to consult your family physician.

Variant 5
Abrasion in zone 6 (the heel) - serious dysfunction zone - you need to consult your family physician.

Variant 6
Abrasion in zone 1(the heel)- normal zone - healthy feet CONGRATULATIONS!MEMO performs its prophylactic and monitoring function.Your MEMO shoes may be used as normal footwear.

 Application of Inserts

If any of MEMO corrective insoles are in use, MEMO orthopedic footwear should be worn at all times to ensure most effective treatment of detected abnormalities. Most abnormalities will retreat within 8 months of applying the corrective MEMO insole. Treatment duration may vary. It is usually shorter for young children and may exceed 8 months for teenagers depending on how deeply abnormalities have set in.

INDICATIONS THAT A FOOT DEFECT IS RETREATING:

 What is Pronation?

This picture shows a view of the right foot as if looking at it from behind. As you can see in the picture the ankle is over pronating or rolling inwardly.


Pronation refers to the inward roll of the foot during normal motion and occurs as the outer edge of the heel strikes the ground and the foot rolls inward and flattens out. A moderate amount of pronation is required for the foot to function properly, however damage and injury can occur during excessive pronation. When excessive pronation does occur the foot arch flattens out and stretches the muscles, tendons and ligaments underneath the foot.

 

 What is Supination?

   

This time the foot is over supinating or rolling outwardly..

   

 

  

Supination is the opposite of pronation and refers to the outward roll of the foot during normal motion. A natural amount of supination occurs during the push-off phase of the running gait as the heel lifts off the ground and the forefoot and toes are used to propel the body forward. However, excessive supination (outward rolling) places a large strain on the muscles and tendons that stabilize the ankle, and can lead to the ankle rolling completely over, resulting in an ankle sprain or total ligament rupture.
