A SHOCK ABSORBER FOR THE HEEL
If chronic heel and ankle pain goes untreated, the pain can spread to the knee, hip and spine. ViscoSpot acts as a shock absorber and protects the joints with every step. The anatomically contoured heel cushions relieve stress with the aid of three zones made of material with different levels of firmness.
The innermost zone is the white spot – a particularly soft zone that absorbs pressure at the root of the pain, the sensitive region directly around the heel spur. The blue zone around the white spot is somewhat firmer and relieves the tendon insertion on the sole of the foot. This helps to ease irritation or inflammation more quickly. The firm grey zone around the outside gently guides the hindfoot when taking steps and softly supports it during heel-to-toe movements. This promotes natural running and walking gaits without inappropriate mechanical stress. The transitions between the three pressure relief zones are very smooth thanks to a special wave-shaped connection (PowerWave) and cannot be felt on the heel.
