The Gel Dancer”s Sesamoid Pad relieves stress and discomfort and is designed to shift weight away from the big toe joint. The reason it is call a dancer’s pad is because dancers are on their ball of foot often and their sesamoids can become inflamed.

Felt Arch Pad / Cookie

Felt arch pad, also called an arch cookie are medical foot pads designed to control the longitudinal arch of patients who need the extra support. Many patients, either athletes or workers who stand on their feet for long periods of time need extra support in the mid arch area. This is do to many reasons, such as Plantar Fasciitis, Fallen Arches, Tendonitis, Over Pronation and Heel Spurs. An arch pad or arch cookie can help this patients.

Designed and produced many years ago, the simple and inexpensive adhesive backed felt arch pad has held up as the primary foot control pad for collapsed longitudinal arch patients. These used to be called arch cookies, but now they are known as longitudinal arch pads. Arch pads can be fabricated from many types of materials. The most common three are: felt, foam and silicone gel. All have their advantages in different situations. But the most common material used and has held up in the test of time is an arch pad produced from medical grade felt. Felt is made from compressed cotton material. This material allows sweat to wick away from the skin unlike foam or gel arch cookie pads. Felt will also mold to the contours of the patient.

Felt arch pads have an adhesive backing produced onto it. This allows the pronation arch cookie pad to be placed either in the shoe or directly onto the patient’s skin. If one was to place them in a shoe, the best way to determine the proper placement is to put the arch pad in the shoe with the backing still in place. Where the foot pad feels the most comfortable, mark it with a pen. Then remove the backing and press the adhesive side down onto the shoe.

Felt arch pad / cookie is the first foot pad to try before spending large amounts of money on custom orthotics.

Gel Toe Sleeves:, How does it help my feet and How do I know my size?

Gel Toe Sleeves are medical grade silicone gel toe separators that help protect digits against friction and pressure from other digits and shoe gear. Many patients wear gel toe separators to reduce discomfort from blisters, corns, hammertoes and high heel shoes. The gel toe separators produced by Atlas Biomechanics are double thick ad stretchier when compared to others.

Physicians and patients are sometimes confused on the proper size. There are 4 sizes of gel tube sleeves. They are produced in Mini, Small, Medium and Large.   

1) Mini Gel Tube Sleeve: best for the 5th toe in women.Image

2) Small: mostly for toes 2-5 in women

3) Medium: best for 2-5 toe in men or big toe in women.

4) Large: mostly for big toe in men.

So gel toe sleeves are gel toe separators that disperse friction and pressure off toes especially in high heels, runners and hammertoes. By following the above sizing one should have a great fit.
