Calibration involves putting each orthotic in a high pressure chamber for testing. An air bladder is filled until the pressure against the orthotic shell is enough to make it flex downward a certain amount (just like your foot will do when you put your weight on it).

Whether you are a competitive or recreational athlete, your foot is unique and requires specific callibration for the right mix of flex and rigidity. This is the real custom factor absent in standard 'custom' orthotics. We love it when we can give athltetes a competitive edge based on powerful feet.

Sole Supports is the only company doing research at major universities to back up claims of increased performance and have a number of professional athletes using the orthotics to gain a competitive edge.
