Poly-Flex High "Active"
Orthotic Style Arch Supports

Feet Relief's Poly-Flex High "Active" orthotic style arch supports are a reasonably priced alternative to other over priced plastic, orthotic style arch supports. The Poly-Flex High "Active" is made from injection molded polypropylene plastic which is an ideal and uniquely suited plastic to use for making orthotic style arch supports. Its semi rigid nature is firm enough to support the pressure of even a severely over pronated (flat) foot but it is not so rigid as to be jarring to the foot or ankle when standing, walking or even running. Arch supports constructed from polypropylene provide considerable support but still allow a normal amount of healthy pronation so the foot can function the way nature intended it to, or at least as close as possible.
Poly-Flex "Active"
Orthotic Style Arch Supports
These arch supports have the exact same shape as the regular Poly-Flex but they are cast from a slightly harder polypropylene plastic so they resist compression and recoil faster then the regular Poly-Flex arch supports. They also come with a 1/4 inch thick, full length cushion cover for added comfort and shock absorption!Plastic orthotic style arch supports costing upwards of $150.00 or more don't offer any more support than these Poly-Flex High "Active" orthotic style arch supports.
The Poly-Flex "Active" Orthotic Style Arch Supports include a metatarsal arch to support the forefoot and ball of the foot.

These arch supports are designed for people with Medium & High Arches

Poly-Flex High "Active" orthotic style arch supports are designed for people with a medium to high arch and to demonstrate the height of the arch we have included a picture of the arch support with a Quarter next to it so
you can see that the arch support, at its apex it just a little higher than the height of a Quarter.

Superior Construction
Polyflex High "Active" orthotic style arch supports are constructed through an injection molding process in which the polypropoylene is cast in a 3-dimensional mold. This superior manufacturing process allows for greater surface detail in the finished product than possible with the traditional heat and vacuum molding process and for the addition of several key design features not available in most orthotic style arch supports.
The Grip Teeth
One of the features made possible through the injection molding process is the grip teeth on the bottom of the heel that assure the arch supports won't slide around in shoes. Although this may seem like a basic concept the majority of arch supports available on the market today lack this simple feature because their construction process does not allow for the addition of this type of surface detailing.
Crisscrossing Support Ribs
The crisscrossing support ribs (also on the bottom) are also a unique feature made possible through the injection molding process. They create a "support web" on the bottom of the arch support which strengthens the arch support and increases its durability but also reduces its weight. The Poly-Flex High "Active" orthotic style arch supports are one of the lightest and strongest polypropylene arch supports that we at Feet Relief have ever seen (and yes, we did weight test them to make sure that statement was valid).
Subtle & Continuous Support Curves
The final benefit of the injection molding process is an enhanced level of surface contouring that creates a serious of continuous natural curves that cradle the heel and support the medial, lateral and metatarsal arch. Arch supports made through the heat and vacuum molding process tend to lack subtle curves such as the heel cup or metatarsal arch so they generally have a flatter profile and don't provide the same level of foot support.
Complete Foot Support
These arch supports support the medial, lateral and metatarsal arch so they are not only good for treating rear foot problems such as Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain) and Achilles Ttendonitis but they are also good for treating forefoot problems such as metatarsalgia, hammertoes, neuromas and bunions. Many ankle and knee problems are related to fallen arches (over pronation). As the arch falls the two bones of the lower leg (the fibula and the tibia) rotate inward, over the ankle, more then they should. This creates tension in the knee joint which can strain ligaments and tendons and put excessive pressure on the meniscus (cartilage) disks. By dramatically reducing over pronation with a Poly-Flex High "Active" orthotic style arch support you can reduce strain on the knee thereby preventing and healing injuries.

Additional Information about the Poly-Flex High "Active" Orthotic Style Arch Supports

Even though the Poly-Flex High "Active" orthotic style arch supports are considered semi rigid by comparison to truly rigid custom made plastic orthotics they are still considerably more rigid than most other over the counter arch supports and orthotics. Most people will not be able to bend or flex the Poly-Flex High "Active" arch supports more than a few millimeters using only their bare hands. The Poly-Flex High "Active" orthotic style arch supports are designed to flex but only under the full weight of the body weight. This is why they work so well.
Break In Period
Due to the semi rigid nature of these arch supports some people will find that they take a little getting used to and may at first feel a little unusual or even a little uncomfortable. A little cramping in various muscles of the foot or lower ankle when the arch supports are new and you have been wearing them for a while, is normal and should go away in anywhere from a couple days to a couple of weeks. If this happens just take the arch supports off let the feet rest and try them again later. The length of time of the break in period largely depends on how flat the feet are or how much the arch has fallen. The more the arch has fallen the more the arch support lifts the bones of the arch and lower ankle, shifting their positions and limiting their range of motion. In the case of a person with a medium to high arch that has fallen and is now completely flat the amount of repositioning of the bones of the foot can be really dramatic so it can take a little longer for the foot to adjust to the feel of wearing the arch supports.
Treating Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain)
The Poly-Flex High "Active" arch supports are extremely effective at treating Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain). To get the best results follow these instructions. After a brief break in period and when it is comfortable to do so, start wearing the arch supports all the time from the first step out of bed in the morning to the last step into bed at night. This will keep the arch from being fully flexed and take the strain of the Plantar Fascia tissue so it can heal. It is really important to avoid going barefoot. Spending even limited amounts of time running around the house barefoot can set back days of healing. It is also important to keep some shoes or slippers by the bed with the arch supports in them. When you get up in the morning or during the night, put on the shoes or slippers with the arch supports in them and avoid going barefoot. Also, if you are the type that likes to shower right when they get up in the morning you should first spend about 15 minutes in your shoes and arch supports before you shower. This allows the Plantar Fascia tissue to warm up and stretch out slowly and gently with out retearing it. After several weeks as the symptoms subside you can ease of the strict regiment of not going barefoot and just wear the arch supports during the day or generally whenever you’re on your feet.
