Orthotics

At the bottom of this comparison, we have referenced an article by Dr. Benno Nigg of the Human Performance Laboratory, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, who concludes that the idea that custom arch support orthotics are supposed to correct mechanical-alignment problems does not hold up.

The ProKinetics concept for correction changes your muscle activation patterns which is the basis for changing your posture and body mechanics. Combine this advantage with our 90 day performance guarantee and you have a win-win.
