The ultimate combination!

This innovative NEW material consists of PORON® laminated to a specially formulated polymer gel, to combine the ingenious qualities of both, for a superior material designed specifically for orthotics and insoles.

Polymer Gel is widely recognised as a material that mimics our own skin. It provides comfortable orthotics that minimise and redistribute peak plantar pressures. Silicone is also extremely effective in reducing shear (a force which is responsible for blistering of the skin).

As podiatrists, we use gel products for blister prevention around the toe areas, but we have kept away from the thicker gel insoles for under the feet as they can cause a loss of traction under the big toe joint during activities. This means the foot will move around too much in the footwear and cannot get a grip with the floor beneath.

This Podotech Poron range has a thinner gel in addition to the poron it only reaches 3.6mm maximum in thickness and its ability to reduce shear is more than the others in the poron range due to the gel. If your blisters are under the balls of the foot, this poron will probably suit you the best as it will reduce the shear on that area that causes foot blisters.

This is a more expensive insole than the others in the Poron range because of the complexity of fusing the two materials together.
