Tarmalade Prostep Full Length – Low Arch Insole features the integrated posting system which allows for greater control of pronation. Moreover, posts of 0 degree, 3 degrees and 5 degrees are provided with each pair. As Tarmalade Prostep Full Length Medium rolls in during pronation, the heel (calcaneus) changes its position. This means pressure may fall on the medial side. In such a case, rear foot posts may be provided to stop this issue.
Many feet that pronate excessively may cause the forefoot to sit in a tilted inward position as compared to the back foot.
As the opposite foot swings forwards, the arch may collapse towards the inner side of the foot. This prevents the big toe joint from bending correctly, thus causing pain. As a result, the plantar fascia may fail to support the arch, causing pain in the heels and arches of the feet. Moreover, pressure under the foot may be spread unevenly, causing hammer toe formation.
Because of continued pronation, the legs may remain twisted inward, thus resulting in stress in the supportive leg muscles. The knee position may also be altered as the patella (kneecap) shifts position. Compression pain can also occur at the front inner edge of the knee. Prostep is designed to restore the natural position of the talus by supporting the heel and spring ligament. This resists the valgus rotation of the rear foot, which is associated with pronation.
