How does Foot Control and Support Systems help me do all this?
Wyatt and Dad Inc. has developed a system to add to your shoes that has taken all these things into consideration and added the missing ingredients for the transformation and continuation of healthy running and walking in our society.
The owners of Wyatt and Dad Inc. Ricky Wyatt, Boston marathoner, ½ marathon runner and tri-athlete and Tony Wyatt, multiple ½ marathon runner, hiker, mountain biker and snowboarder have developed a 9 month plan to healthy feet incorporating Foot Control and Support Systems into shoes that has enabled them to run hundreds of miles and participate in various sports activities for the past 16 years injury free. Ricky, Tony and staff have also helped thousands of people with foot related ailments such as plantar fasciitis, knee pain, lower back pain, hip pain, neuroma pain, shin splints and more over the past 26 years.
Foot Control and Support Systems are designed and engineered with a system that has a deep heel cup (23mm) to normalize the rotation of the calcaneus (heel bone) and supports for the 3 arches of the foot to prevent over pronation or supination while going through the gait cycle. Foot Control and Support Systems technology is designed to be a mirror image of the arch contours in the foot. This ensures proper support and an even distribution of weight and helps make the muscles in the foot stronger. The stronger the muscles in the feet are the less fatigue and stress the foot and body feels.
*Deep Heel Cup:
The heel of your foot was designed with natural “padding” that absorbs shock when you walk or run. The heel cup counter area is designed with a rounded shape to ensure your “padding” rests under the calcaneus where it benefits the body the most, instead of spreading out from under the calcaneus. The heel cup is also designed with deep side walls to limit the calcaneal inversion or eversion. This gives the arches a stronger foundation and decreases the amount of support necessary for a proper stance and gait.
*Arch Support x3:
The metatarsal (or Transverse arch) support is designed to relieve pain and fatigue in the ball of the foot area. This also improves posture and balance to help increase overall health. The medial and lateral longitudinal arch supports give the proper amount of support, which aids in reducing fatigue. The medial and lateral longitudinal arch supports work together to provide side to side stability and improve overall balance and posture. These features added together give you a superior combination of control, support and comfort.
Foot Control and Support Systems technology “Medial/lateral counter foot stabilizer” is designed to support the medial and lateral longitudinal arches, as well as the transverse metatarsal arch, giving total support to the feet as well as controlling the motion of the calcaneus. This combination of control and support keeps the foot in its most neutral position throughout the gait cycle and while standing, allowing the rest of the skeletal system that relies on the feet for proper alignment to remain in its most neutral position, thus preventing and correcting problems caused by overpronation or supination, and aiding in prevention of foot related injuries.
How does Foot Control and Support Systems make the muscles in the feet stronger?
Because of the patented design of Foot Control and Support Systems technology, Foot Control and Support Systems are able to exercise the muscles in the foot by allowing the foot to go through its natural gait cycle while training the foot for the proper amount of pronation and/or supination without allowing excessive over pronation and/or supination. Foot Control and Support Systems technology is created to be a mirror image of the plantar surface (bottom) of the foot. That mirror image gives the wearer the proper shaped surface to walk on. By creating the properly shaped surface inside the shoe, the foot is now distributing 80% of our weight on the muscles and the 3 arches of the foot, as opposed to the majority of our weight being placed on the calcaneus (heel bone) and the metatarsal heads (ball of the foot). As the foot goes through its gait cycle, the contours of Foot Control and Support Systems technology engage the foot’s proprioceptor nerves, causing the proper muscles to fire. This causes the wearer to exercise the muscles, tendons and stabilizers in the foot to train it to function properly, strengthening them over time.
What kind of shoes should I wear?
Because people in our society continues to run, walk, work and wear styles of shoes that they prefer, Foot Control and Support Systems technology is the best solution for all our footwear to keep our feet healthy throughout our entire lives. That is why Foot Control and Support Systems has developed our technology so that it can be enjoyed in most of your footwear. In addition to your favorite sports shoes, Foot Control and Support Systems orthotics can be added to most work, dress and casual shoes/boots. That means you can continue to exercise your feet and keep your body healthy as you live your life.
What if I don’t have a foot problem?
Remember, according to the Us Department of Public Health – “87% of all people in the US have a foot related problem.” This means that, even if there is no evidence of a direct foot problem, we could have a problem in our body that is foot related. Our skeletal system is affected in many ways by how well our feet (our foundation) perform. So, when we discuss foot related problems, we are not referring just to the feet.
What about putting custom orthotics in my shoes?
Studies have shown that Custom Orthotics and Off the Shelf Orthotics have the same success rate. Although Custom Orthotics are necessary in some cases, for most of us they just cost a lot more.
