The standard X-Line device offers low profile, low volume and infinite versatility. It is quick to fit and easy to adjust offering the patient optimal comfort, and can be trimmed to fit virtually any shoe. Its flat base readily accepts additions and modifications so may be customised to suit the indivdual.

X-Line wedges have been specifically designed to enhance the sagittal plane control provided by the X-Line device.
 

            

 

 

As the car approaches the bridge, it slows to go up the incline. Calcaneal plantarflexion is reduced when the heel meets the mid-foot saddle.

At a safe speed, the car crosses the hump of the bridge. The foot is stabilised when fully loaded on the saddle.
Once over the hump, the car accelerates away. The 1st ray drops into the recess and encourages the MTP joint to bend, the heel raises and sagittal movement within the foot has been maximised.

 

 

X Line insoles will help in ensuring correct foot alignment and posture which in turn provides the wearer with increased comfort and reduced fatigue.

By exercising and strengthening the foot it is possible to help speed up the recovery process and return to whatever activity the wearer loves to do - whether that be walking, running or playing their preferred sport.

Simple rehabilitation techniques are incredibly important and will reinforce the efect of the X Line insoles. Calf stretching has been proven to benefit most people - more flexible calf muscles lead to a more natural gait.
