December 21, 2016—Foot Levelers is thrilled to unveil our next generation of custom orthotic flip-flops, the Plus line with Gait Cycle System built into the footbed. The world’s best flip-flops just got better with an extra boost of shock absorption at heel-strike, improved stability to guide the foot into healthy alignment, and a propulsive boost at toe-off.
From the moment the foot hits the ground, a complex series of events takes place, which affect the entire body. The comprehensive Gait Cycle System (GCS) provides support and protection through every phase of gait, including:
- Zorbacel heel pad to absorb damaging heel-strike shock
- StanceGuard mid-layer to provide the variable firmness, flexibility, and control needed for proper biomechanical support during mid-stance
- And Propacel in the forefoot to give an energetic “boost” at toe-off, helping to conserve energy and reduce fatigue as the body advances back to the heel-strike phase
Foot Levelers custom-made orthotic flip-flops offer the fashion and ease of traditional flip-flops, plus health benefits that actually help your patients’ feet and backs. The “Plus” of GCS is currently available for Foot Levelers’ traditional line only, including Seabreeze Plus, Midnight Breeze Plus, and Bling Plus for her; and Catamaran Plus for him in both Teak and Mahogany leather.
These new exciting offerings are included in Foot Levelers’ Spring 2017 catalog, slated to arrive in practices around the country the first or second week of January. The new catalog also includes a number of exciting new shoes plus a BIG new technology offering—stay tuned for more on this revolutionary innovation.
