Push ortho is used for complaints or reduced function of the locomotor apparatus. Adequate mechanical support is key. Push ortho can play an important role in cases of repositioning and stabilisation, thus compensating for loss of normal function.

Push med relieves pain, thus allowing an increase to the physical ability of the joint to function under stress.

Push Sport range is well suited for the resumption of training after ankle ligament injury, to prevent recurring ankle injury and in case of ankle instability.


Product Overview

The Pulse-Flow Preventa Max Protection podiatric designed insoles have been created for the high-risk foot.

These medical-grade devices feature the new material D30 – a unique light-weight shock absorbing material based on non-Newtonian principles. What does this mean? The material is soft and flexible in its natural state, however, on impact, the material’s molecules lock together to stiffen the insole, dissipating impact energy, reducing transmitted force. At rest, the D30 returns to its flexible state.

When compared to traditional insole material such as EVA, Polyurethane or Open Cell Foam D30 offers 33% better shock absorption, up to 14 times more durability and maximum return on investment with respect to cost-effectiveness and risk-prevention.

The low profile design allow the insole to fit in a wide range of footwear.

Pulse-Flow Preventa insoles

  • Featuring D30® technology to help stabilise the foot and prevent impact related injuries.
  • Contoured mid-foot increases stability, reduces friction and optimises motion
  • Designed for individuals who need extra protection, reliable support and enhanced comfort

D30® Patented, Shock Absorbing Technology
