The ViscoHeel® K is a gently supporting heel cushion that is used as a corrective measure for knock-knees or bandy legs. It slightly corrects the malpositioning of the heel and therefore alleviates associated pain. The raised wedge can be placed medially or laterally to correct pronation/supination of the heel, or varus/valgus alignment of the knee. The heel is guided away from the inward tilt typical for knock-knees (valgus position), and from the outward tilt typical for bandy legs (varus position). Unilateral stress on the locomotor system is counteracted, which results in a general strain relief from the foot right up to the lower back. Pressure peaks are reduced, and joints are relieved and protected from advancing osteoarthritis. The viscoelastic heel cushion optimally adapts to the shape of the foot and shoe. It is made of high-quality, non-slip silicone that is gentle on your skin, easy to clean and particularly durable.
