ICB’s patented Dual Density Heat Moulding Orthotics are a WORLD FIRST in orthotic design and manufacture. Designed by ICB’s Research and Development Team, comprised of Podiatrists, Orthotists & Orthotic Technicians, practitioners using ICB Dual Density Orthotics, are able to achieve enhanced patient treatment outcomes.
The green (firm density) EVA provides greater control and support for both the longitudinal arch and calcaneus – where it is most needed. Whilst the blue (mid density) EVA allows for greater mid tarsal joint and metatarsal shaft comfort.
ICB Dual Density Orthotics are manufactured from 100% EVA – a material that in it’s pure form is easy to heat and mould, with superior resilience, allowing it to maintain it’s shape. ICB Orthotics are thus able to be fully customised: i.e. heat moulded directly to the patient’s foot or plaster cast, and quickly modified by grinding or heating deflections to create specific shapes – allowing Practitioners to offer and create a fully customised solution, within the clinic setting.
EVA has a long ‘construction memory’ and can be moulded and adjusted to the patients’ feet or cast, simply by applying heat. The Taibrelle covers resist bacteria, and are easily cleaned in warm water.
No air bubbles – so ICB Orthotics will resist compression and distortion.
Is a mid foot stabiliser which runs longitudinally from the mid foot through to the forefoot and splays out in a triangular shape. The Triangular Shaft allows weight to be dispersed evenly across the metatarsals through its unique Weight Distribution System (WDS).
This is the ideal angle (due to patients having an average 4°- 6° tibial varum) for optimum performance as recommended by industry standards.
This gives biomechanical control of the subtalar joint during stance and gait, allowing balance, control and coordination.
The firmer density EVA gives support to the longitudinal arch and rear foot, aiding in mid tarsal joint support, whilst the medium density EVA provides the patient with forefoot comfort during the gait cycle.
