The Basis Slip-On Shoe
Apex Foot Health developed The Basis Slip-On shoe.
Their design combines over 70 years of experience in the foot health industry. The Basis helps relieve pain caused by foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis.
The Basis has the footbed like a shoe and the comfort of wearing slippers. The breathable material and large pull tabs make them as easy as putting on a pair of socks. You can also remove the footbed and replace it with an orthotic insert.
How Can an Orthotic Insert Help?
Some speculate that orthotics correct the alignment of the skeleton. Others believe they work on the muscles.
Healthcare providers do know that they help several medical and foot health conditions. Examples include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
- Back pain: leads to improper foot positions
- Bunions: painful bumps at the base of the big toe
- Bursitis: swelling in a fluid-filled sac in the heel or toes
- Diabetes: can cause loss of sensation or abnormal pains in the feet
- Flat feet: contributes to foot, ankle, and back pain
- Hammertoes: pain in the second toe and deformities on the ball of the foot
- Heel spurs: excess bone growth on the back or bottom of the heel
- High arches: can lead to shin splints, knee pain, and plantar fasciitis
- Injuries to the feet and ankles
- Plantar fasciitis
Physicians often prescribe orthotics for individuals with incorrect positioning of their feet or legs. This can occur if the leg or foot muscles are underdeveloped.
The A-Wave Orthotic Support
The A-Wave shoe insert provide pain relief and comfort. They also improve stability in three durometers. A durometer is the international standard used to describe the hardness of a material.
The A-Wave is composed of memory foam, thermoplastic resins, and supportive gels. The combination of these materials provides increased control and shock absorption. They also prevent calluses and decrease pain on the side of your knee.
This shoe inserts comes in three different support levels.
The Flex level provides medium to high arch support.
The flexible arch helps control motion and absorbs shock.
The Firm style gives you a firm level of cushioning support.
It increases stability for those with low, medium, or high arch types. This insole benefits all arch types.
The X-Firm level provides a more aggressive type of support for people with low to medium arches.
This increases your balance. The cushion decreases heel and forefoot pressure. By increasing your balance, this insole helps increase the alignment of your joints and spine.
When the Basis or the A-Wave alone don’t provide the needed relief, there are more options.
As mentioned, you can remove the footbed of the Basis. Now you have the ability to insert the A-Wave.
Combining these two products can be the answer to relieving your foot pain. You may wish to wear the A-Wave in your shoes during the day. When you get home, put the A-Wave into your Basis and slip them on for the rest of the day.
Patients have reported positive results by following this routine.
