Why we prefer gel over foam for orthotics

We’ve been asked about this because many people are offered standard foam orthotics by other practitioners. These are made of good materials, but the cellular wall structure does tend to collapse over time, diminishing the level of support.
Here at PTI, we prefer to use a two-part polymer. Initially a liquid, formulated as soft as required, it cures to become a non-cellular gel. This provides a long-term cushioning solution because it does not bottom out in key load bearing areas. As well as for everyday wear, it is popular with many active athletes.
