What does Foot Factor do?
A Foot Factor orthotic will augment the correct alignment of your body and heighten the perception of
neural feedback to your balance control centres with the following benefits:
- enhanced comfort
- improved posture
- increased foot/limb efficiency
- relief of symptoms
- prevention of injury
The body moves subtly and continually to maintain upright balance; a multitude
receptors in the body automatically regulate these oscillations.
Foot receptors have the added function of orientating our bodies with gravity
and provide feedback to the brain to maintain
balance. As a result, balance,
co-ordination, precision, speed, power and efficiency all depend on modulating
It takes just 90mins to complete a full gait analysis, biomechanical assessment and
create your bespoke orthotics. They are ready to wear when you leave.
For the past six years I have worn Norbert Cauvas' orthotic insoles on expeditions to
some of the most remote places on Earth. I have used them during a successful expedition to Mount Everest,
whilst visiting penguin colonies on the Antarctic Peninsula, during first ascents of mountains in Central
Asia, and whilst walking along a frozen river in the Indian Himalaya in winter.
I am convinced that
Norbert's insoles have contributed significantly to the reduction in foot and knee pain that I previously
suffered from during these types of multi-week journeys.
