The Best Prefab Solution for Mechanical Foot Pain
Improve your 1st line treatment by choosing P3 prefabs, the most effective non-custom orthoses for treating or preventing plantar fasciitis and other common biomechanical pathologies.
Designed by podiatrists using evidence-based research, P3 prefabs are funtionally corrected and incorporate control features previously found only in sophisticated custom orthoses.
Add one of these optional topcovers to enhance P3 performance:
– can improve the effectiveness of your patient’s athletic shoes. Use to treat or prevent overuse injuries.5
The double-layer topcover is black microsuede on top and high-rebound EVA on bottom.
– patients with sensitive feet benefit from added cushioning. The double-layer topcover is plastazote on top and webbed blue Poron on bottom.
– use for patients who want cushioning without much bulk. The tricolor EVA is a durable, single-layer topcover.
