RS Components introduces orthotic insole to help workers with aches and pains

Innovative new insole promotes better lower body health and lessens symptoms of aches and pains in feet, knees or back

London, UK, 5 March 2020:

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global multi-channel provider of industrial and electronic products and solutions, has announced availability of an innovative orthotic insole that is designed to help people who suffer from lower body aches or pain in their feet, legs or back. Called OrthoSole, the product has been co-developed by Ronnie Irani, the former professional sportsman who played cricket for England and Essex.

Designed to offer an accessible support solution for everyone, the OrthoSole insole is highly effective at lessening the symptoms of a number of conditions and is ideal for those who suffer from a range of issues such as foot fatigue or pain in the knee, heel, ankle, hip or back, as well as conditions such as overpronation, plantar fasciitis, shin splints or poor circulation.

For example, for back pain, the combination of the OrthoSole’s adjustable support system and cushioning materials can evenly distribute body weight to help reduce stress and shock to the lower back. Or for conditions such as foot pain or foot fatigue or plantar fasciitis – sometimes called ‘Policeman’s Heel’ – the product offers much needed support via discreet arch and metatarsal pads, which improve support to the arch of the foot to deliver a much-improved foothold. In addition to easing heel impact or stabilising ankle joints, the insoles can also help keep feet cool, dry and free from odour.

Completely customisable with alternate arch and metatarsal support pads, a wide selection of orthotic insoles is available to meet the demands of a multitude of activities and applications and for all kinds of footwear, including sports shoes, sandals or boots designed for the workplace.

Ideal for health and safety professionals looking to ensure workers have the right footwear, the OrthoSole range is shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
