The Bauerfeind ViscoPed S insoles offer softer comfort areas at the pressure points of the foot. A must for people who spend a lot of time on their feet; whether standing, walking or running. Full-length*Size is determined by shoe size silicone insoles, incorporating areas under the ball of the foot, aid in the desired realignment of metatarsal regions. Lower density areas, under the ball of the foot, aid in the desired realignment of metatarsal heads while allowing for additional cushioning. Softer silicone in heel region for shock load reduction has additional cushioning on the medial side, the area most sensitive to plantar fasciitis pain.
Visco Ped S Features:

Does not contain latex or absorb odors.

Q. What are the differences between ViscoPed and ViscoPed S?
A. The biggest difference is that ViscoPed has a raised metatarsal pad to correctly align the metatarsal heads. Some people find this raised pad therapeutic; others find it irritating. Therefore, ViscoPed S uses different densities of silicone to align the metatarsal heads. A very soft dark blue silicone is surrounded by soft light blue silicone and the met heads naturally fall and align on the dark blue areas because they are the least dense. In addition, ViscoPed S is available in 7 sizes, accommodating a women's size 4 shoe to a men's size 14 ?. ViscoPed is available in 5 sizes, so it fits a smaller range.
Q. What can they be used for?
A. Shock absorption, foot, joint and back pain, metatarsalgia (irritation of the metatarsals), diabetic foot, fat pad atrophy (thinning of fat pad of foot), hyperkeratosis (thickening of outer layer of skin).
Q. Do they have an arch support?
A. They have slight contouring in the arch area to gently support this region, much like a preformed insole in a sports shoe. They are not arch supports.
Q. How much can it be trimmed?
A. They may be trimmed along the trim lines or in the clear silicone area. The blue areas should not be cut, as this may cause the softer spots to come out of the product. You should also avoid trimming the ventilation holes as to leave rough edges that may tear.
Q. Is there an easy way to put it in my shoe?
A. The wearer should remove the existing insole in the shoe, if possible, and replace it with this insole. The insole can be folded like a taco and inserted into the shoe or rolled up from toe to heel and allowed to unroll, from heel to toe, in the shoe.
Q. Will I need a bigger shoe?
A. These insoles should fit your normal shoe size. Some people prefer a ? size larger shoe. It's a good idea to take them with you when you shop for new shoes.
Q. I have a very narrow heel. Will these fit in my shoe?
A. Our insoles fit in most shoes. The heel of ViscoPed and ViscoPed S is about 2 ? inches wide.
Q. Where is the metatarsal pad positioned under the foot?
A. The metatarsal pad fits under the ball of the foot and should cause the metatarsals/toe joints to separate slightly and land on the softer blue spots for extra cushioning.
Q. What makes them better than what I've tried in the past?
A. Made of the same medical grade, silicone as the clinically proven ViscoSpot Comfortable, durable materials Softer silicone correctly placed in the areas most sensitive to foot pain Slightly contoured arch for comfort Ventilation holes allow for air circulation Trim lines for a personal fit Easily cleaned with soap and water.
