Custom Orthotics & Shoes
A bio-mechanical solution to painful foot conditions, orthotics are meant to make body mechanics painless. Proper designated custom orthotics will not only relieve existing pain but prevent problems from getting more severe.
They also work as a support to weakened muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons due to injury or mishandling over the years. The symptoms experienced can be different types of foot, knee, hip and back pain.

Medical Compression Stocking
The concept of compression therapy lies on a simple and efficient mechanical principle: the application of an elastic garment around the leg.
By compressing the limb with graduated compression – strong at the ankle and decreasing going up the leg – the compression stocking helps the venous walls, and efficiently relieves aching and heavy legs.
Compression stockings help to treat many venous circulation problems such as heavy legs, varicose veins, aftercare following surgery, leg ulcers, and other chronic venous diseases.
They can be used to prevent venous troubles during pregnancy, sitting and/or standing for long periods of time and long distance travel. Depending on the pathology, medical compression therapy can be applied in different forms: socks, stockings, pantyhose or bandages.
Orthopedic pillows are used for neck pain and sleep disorders.
