ISEAL insole is scientifically proven to improve walking functions and reduce injury risks.

Further details for Biomechanical explanation are from here.


Reducing the risk of tripping falls

“Tripping” is the largest cause of falls while walking.

The period when the foot is off the ground is called swing phase. During the mid-swing phase, the distance between the toe and the ground becomes very low, known as minimum foot clearance (MFC). ISEAL insole increases MFC by assisting ankle motion (i.e. dorsiflexion) and reduces the risk of tripping falls.

Reducing the load on the knee

Knee adduction moment causes osteoarthritis for Varus knee and ISEAL insole reduces knee adduction moment.

Varus knee tends to be a cause of osteoarthritis at the medial (inner) compartment of the knee. This is often due to the ground reaction force generating moment that rotates the shank bone externally (laterally). ISEAL insole realigns the shank bone to reduce moment arm and associated knee adduction moment, the cause of osteoarthritis.


Less fatiguing

ISEAL insole improves walking efficiency.

Energy efficiency can be calculated based on position and speed of body centre of mass. Efficient loading is possible by utilising foot contact impact to progress forward while reducing the amount of impact transferred to the lower limb joints. ISEAL insole enhances energy efficiency by supporting the certain ankle motions and applying different sole-materials.

Preventing ankle sprain

ISEAL insole controls foot centre of pressure to prevent the ankle from twisting.

For prevention of ankle sprain, ISEAL insole is designed to regulate excessive lateral centre of pressure movement.


Precautions for use

  • ISEAL insole is not suitable for people with excessive knock-knees. If you are not too sure, we recommend you should consult with the orthopaedist or knee surgeon before using ISEAL insole.
  • If your foot feels too tight when you set ISEAL insole in your shoe, this shoe may not be suitable for ISEAL insole. Do not cut the sides or heel area of ISEAL insole in order to squeeze it into your shoe.
  • Once ISEAL insole wears off, please replace it with the new one. Although it depends on how it is used, it is recommended that you replace ISEAL insole every 6 months.
  • Despite positive effects of ISEAL insole on preventing some types of injuries, this does not mean ISEAL insole will prevent you from injuries. Please note that we (Global Bridge Melbourne pty. ltd.) have no liability even if you suffer from injuries or any other negative conditions. Please use it at your own risks.
