As the sole UK distributor of Schein, Salts Techstep offers a vast collection of off the shelf insoles. The collection covers many different applications and indications, with sport and business ranges to compliment the functional everyday insoles.

All of these insoles are heat mouldable and can be easily adapted to meet individual requirements and footwear, ensuring a functional and comfortable fit.

Sports

Different sports elicit varying strains on the feet and musculoskeletal system. The NovaPED sports insoles have been developed to protect against damage from excessive strain and alleviate future complications due to exercise.

The slim, high quality thermoplastic bases are designed for different sports. The relative insoles are unique to the sport’s specific movement and strain patterns, footwear and terrain, in order to aid common associated indications.


Running

With the growing number of running enthusiasts, the number of running-specific overstrain damage and injuries has increased as well. Many complaints can be avoided in advance by countering e.g. increased pronation in the ankle with a foot support.

Area of use:

  • Running
  • Hiking
  • Nordic Walking

Application examples:

  • Achilles tendon problems (Achillodynia)
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Knee pain (Chondropathia patellae)
  • Pes-valgus foot (Pes plano valgus)
  • Over-pronation
  • Splayfoot (Pes transversus planus)

Construction features:

  • Supports the foot at the longitudinal arch and the forefoot area
  • Pressure redistribution and relief by additional padding under the heel and the metatarsal heads
  • With high-quality micro fibre cover
  • Three strengths, depending on shoe size
  • Available in sizes 35-53 wide, 35-46 standard

Running with raised outer edge

The NovaPED sports Running with raised outer edge is intended for athletes with a varus leg axis (bowleg), which causes over-strain of the outer knee structures. An integrated raised outer edge may contribute to relief and pain reduction.

Area of use:

  • Running
  • Hiking
  • Nordic Walking

Application examples:

  • Tractus iliotibialis band syndrome
  • Bowlegs (Genu varum)

  • With high-quality micro fibre cover
  • Available in sizes 35-53 wide, 35-46 standard

Football

Football is one of the most popular sports in the world. Changing movement patterns lead to injury and excessive strain in particular in the area of the foot. Unsuitable football shoes often contribute to such problems.

The NovaPED sports Football improves fit and wearing comfort of the football shoe, contributing to injury prevention.

Area of use:

  • Football

Application examples:

  • Pes-valgus foot (Pes plano valgus)

  • Additional padding of the joint of the big toe
  • With ARU-X-static cover, antibacterial
  • Available in sizes 29/30-48

Ball Sports

Ball sports are characterised by changing movements – running, jumping, turning and stopping. Particularly the big toe, the inside of the foot and the forefoot are subject to high strain. Overstrain may lead to pressure points, callous formation or pain in the foot, knee, hip and back.

NovaPED sports Ball Sports alleviates sports-specific complaints and ensures wearing comfort with concurrent relief of strongly strained areas.

Area of use:

  • Basketball
  • Handball
  • Volleyball

  • Cushioning forefoot padding
  • Support of the forefoot's outer edges
  • With high-quality micro fibre cover
  • Available in sizes 35-53 wide, 35-46 standard

Racket Sports

Different running movements with quick changes of direction put a lot of strain on the feet.

NovaPED sports Racket not only protects from overstrain damage, but also relieves structures already overstrained.

Area of use:

  • Tennis
  • Badminton
  • Squash
  • Table tennis

Application examples:

  • Pes-valgus foot (Pes plano valgus)
  • Splayfoot (Pes transversus planus)

  • Pressure reducing by long-sole padding
  • Support of the forefoot's outer edges
  • With high-quality micro fibre cover
  • Available in sizes 35-53 wide, 35-46 standard

Cycling

When cycling, there is continuous strain specifically on the forefoot. This may cause painful pressure points and irritated nerves e.g. tingling.

The NovaPED sports Bike with its special construction relieves overstrained foot structures, stabilises the foot and knee and improves power transfer to the pedals.

Area of use:

  • Cycling

  • With high-quality micro fibre cover
  • Available in sizes 35-48

Golf

The NovaPED sports Golf is coordinated with the different needs in golf.

The foot is not only relieved and supported during long walks but also receives a stable basis for the drive.

Area of use:

  • Golf

Application examples:

  • Pes-valgus foot (Pes plano valgus)
  • Splayfoot (Pes transversus planus)

Construction features:

  • Support and stabilisation of the foot's arch structures
  • Guidance of the rear foot
  • Continuous padding layer
  • Additional pressure reducing of the heel and the joint's of the big toes
  • With high-quality micro fibre cover

Skating puts a static strain specifically on the inside of the foot. The feet cannot roll.

The NovaPED sports Skating stabilises the foot, increases wearing comfort in the shoe and improves the power transmission to the underground. Additionally, sports-specific complaints, such as irritated nerves (tingling, feet going to sleep) at the forefoot or pain in the area of the longitudinal arch are prevented.

Area of use:

  • Inline-Skating
  • Speed skating
  • Ice hockey
  • Skating

  • Splayfoot (Pes transversus planus)

Construction features:

  • Slim contour
  • Stabilises the longitudinal arch
  • Improved power transfer by raised cup at the outer edge
  • Pressure reducing by long-sole padding
  • With ARU-X-static cover, antibacterial
  • Available in sizes 35-48 wide, 35-46 standard

Cross-Country Skiing

Classic cross-country skiing is characterised by a continuous movement pattern where particularly the heel needs good guidance in initial step and push-off phase.

The NovaPED sports Cross-Country Skiing achieves this by a well-developed firm cup. The flexible setup in the forefoot warrants the necessary mobility at the push.

Area of use:

  • Cross-Country Skiing

Application examples:

  • Pes-valgus foot (Pes plano valgus)
  • Splayfoot (Pes transversus planus)

Construction features:

  • Supports the foot at the longitudinal arch

  • Flexible forefoot
  • With ARU-X-static cover, antibacterial
  • Available in sizes 35-48 wide, 35-46 standard

Downhill Skiing

Downhill skiing does not permit to roll off the foot. The stiff skiing boot keeps it in a fixed, unmoving position. The fastening buckles apply pressure on the foot towards the bottom of the shoe, leading to foot pain and irritated nerves, specifically in the forefoot area.

The NovaPED sports Downhill Skiing increases wearing comfort, avoids sports-specific complaints and optimises power transfer to the ski.

Area of use:

  • Downhill Skiing

Application examples:

  • Pes-valgus foot (Pes plano valgus)
  • Splayfoot (Pes transversus planus)
  • Problems in the forefoot area (Metatarsalgia)

Construction features:

  • A firm cup stabilises the rear foot and knee
  • Support of the longitudinal arch

S90 Heel Spur

Heel spurs and Plantar Fasciitis are common foot conditions, often caused by gait abnormalities, frequent running or jumping and overload on the musculoskeletal system. Our S90 Heel Spur insoles are designed to offer relief from weight bearing pressure, to relieve symptoms and protect against further damage. The insoles are constructed using a PU foam padding mid-layer, with an easy to clean, vinyl top cover.

These devices can be provided both with and without a metatarsal dome for additional pressure relief, and are available in sizes 35-47. We offer medium and wide widths, with both split width/size and correction being available to ensure optimum function and comfort for our customers.

The Hallux Limitus has a Morton’s extension to limit movement of the metatarsophalangeal joint and prevent painful overextension.

The Hallux Rigidus insole is reinforced across the plantar surface of the forefoot to restrict movement of the metatarsophalangeal joint, preventing painful overextension.

These devices are available with or without a heel cut out, covering sizes 35-48. The Hallux Rigidus/Limitus insoles are available in medium and wide widths, with the option of split widths/size and correction.
