How the SuperiorArch® Works
The SuperiorArch® has a custom designed incline molded into the select wood base. This allows room for the heel to rotate down avoiding impingement of the heel bones. High Density Foam Pads are placed at the arch and heel contact points. The SuperiorArch® is completely covered with two inch Premium Foam for foot comfort. An adjustable Velcro Flap properly secures any size foot to the SuperiorArch®.
How to use the SuperiorArch®
The SuperiorArch® is very easy to use.
1. Place the foot under Velcro strap and tightly secure the Velcro flaps over the top of the foot making sure the heel is behind the incline bump.
2. Then slowly stretch the upper arch of the foot by lowering the leg toward the floor. Stretch as far as you can without causing pain. Hold the stretch and count to ten; then slowly release and repeat.
Note: Recommended stretching programs with the SuperiorArch® will vary depending on the one’s age, skill level, fitness level and activity being trained for. For beginners, it is often recommended that an individual stretch at least twice a day.
