Viscolas® is the only viscoelastic polymer expressly formulated for orthopedic applications. Reproducing the shock attenuating properties of the fatty pads on the bottom of the foot, Viscolas® effectively dissipates the skeletal shock and reverberations that occur with each step, and equalizes underfoot pressures. Use of Viscolas® has proven to speed post-operative recovery of the foot, leg, and lower-back;reduces symptoms of heel strike injuries such as tendinitis and shin splints; and provides effective soft tissue cushioning under the foot. In trial after trial, Viscolas® has been proven to provide significantly better shock absorbing efficiency than any other viscoelastic polymer. Insoles made of Viscolas® are the ones most prescribed by orthopedic surgeons, therapists,and other health professionals... and they are the insoles most chosen for personal use by the staffs of orthopedic facilities.
