1. Avoid foot sliding in shoes. Shoes in the shoes bed is flat, but the soles of the feet are not, so walking foot will slide in the shoes, walking every step of the cost of a little bit more power, long-distance walking easier to add a variety of wounds. The use of a three-dimensional insole fills the gap between the foot and the shoe bed, reducing the slip of the sole in the shoe.

2, support the pace of progress progress, stability. A foot mat with heel shape can reduce the swing of the ground following the walk, and then reduce the chance of fatigue and reduce the wound.

3. Earthquake absorption. Footbed has two kinds, one is the use of the hard heel cup holder or shock stick, because human heel muscle hypertrophy is a natural shock absorption function, only need to work hard glue a suitable radian support or shock stick, can exhibit good shock-absorbing function. And the other is the use of soft materials, such as Gel, air cushion and so on to absorb the impact force when heel touchdown, suitable for running, basketball and other high jump action.

4. Correct walking and standing posture. This is the orthotic can perform the function for natural and other elements of a lot of people, when standing spine and leg is not 100 per cent straight, or walk in when walking swaying under long time, leading to a variety of skeleton and joint wound with orthopedic insole can correct posture and walk when standing, then reduce the wound.

Together, it does not have the function of removing taste.

In addition, this is the most humble craft insole workshops or small factory processing, the original data is from some most recovered waste clothes, hospitals, hotels, the hotel is the bed cloth quilt cover, industrial pollution and the poor under the angle of material, black cotton processing carpet etc..
