Ski

Model S1

Designed for recreational skiers.  Intimate contour with the foot improves ski control and boot fit and comfort.

Features

  • Prolite Top Cover
  • Narrow Width

Details

The Ski device is specifically designed to improve functional control of the foot and ankle for greater ski control. It’s ideal for recreational skiers who ski 5 to 20 days a year.

The intimate custom contour of this device improves energy transfer from the foot to ski edge, increasing responsiveness and control. Maintaining the arch in a neutral position also aligns the ankles and hips, resulting in more efficient body movement and comfort in typically uncompromising ski boots.

An 8mm semi-shallow heel cup and narrow finishing allows the device to fit into low volume ski boots with typically narrow boot boards.

The Ski Ortho device is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
