actiflex - New stock program 2019

When it comes to comfort shoes, the most important criteria are that the footwear is both comfortable and functional. This is why our actiflex shoes are available in a range of sizes, widths and with varying heel heights. This way, we can meet your individual needs for foot-friendly, comfortable shoes.

The actiflex shoe features selected leather and individually adjustable options. The comfort shoes come in a range of designs with lovingly crafted details and offer a combination of a modern look with a high degree of comfort.

NovaPED carbon — Hallux Rigidus

Hallux rigidus describes the restriction of joint motion at the base of the big toe. It is usually caused by arthrosis. Hallux rigidus progresses and causes increasing pain in the metatarsophalangeal joint.

The main functional characteristic of an insole for hallux rigidus is the rigidus spring. This \'splints\' the metatarsophalangeal joint and thus limits its mobility. This way, the forces are transferred from the joint to the stiffening material.

In addition to the desired level of stability, material thickness must be taken into consideration during rigid spring production. Thanks to their extremely thin and light carbon design, the insoles take up minimal space inside the shoe. This leaves more room for padding elements and, of course, the foot itself.

The insole is available with a short or long spring in a range of widths and padding thicknesses, or as a chassis version without padding. All versions come with a suitable compensation insole.

Scheinworks Measurement technology with two brand-new models

We now have two new models in our product range.

The two treadmills by the company Kettler, the TLK3 and TSL70, are equipped with the well-known integrated pressure measuring plate.

Advantages of the new TLK3 treadmill:

  • ready for use in a few easy steps
  • saves a great deal of space thanks to foldable profile
  • robust pressure measurement technology
  • simple and fast data input via USB interface
  • Gait analysis possible with and without shoes
  • combinable with SyncLightCam for synchronous video recording
Advantages of the new TSL70 treadmill:
  • stable treadmill that runs extremely quietly and max. speed of 20 km/h
  • very large sensor area
  • two different plate sizes
  • Sensor matrix with individually calibrated, capacitive pressure sensors
  • intuitive, modular software suite FDM with in-depth evaluation report
  • optionally combinable with EMG and video

The product range in the NovaPED carbon Edition has been expanded

The Business/Classic and sports insoles line has been extended with a heel spur model.

NovaPED Carbon Plantar Fasciitis consists of a dimensionally stable carbon fibre core and involves the lowering of the plantar tendon, which significantly relieves the tendon structure. An all-round smoothed padding element in the heel that does not ride up and gives the impression of a thin edge.

Its key feature is the interaction of the above-mentioned components, the heel cut-out and a heel ring which is attached under the insole. This combination raises the heel slightly and allows it to be easily cushioned with every step.

A light heel cup that distributes the tread surface and thus the pressure distribution while walking rounds off the product.

SCHEINWORKS FDM 1.18.38 - Update

We are pleased to be able to offer you a new update for your Scheinworks measurement technology.

This update provides you with additional features for your treadmill or your pressure measuring plate. All new: marker tracking! The markers can be placed on the patient with a few easy steps, and the software automatically calculates the joint mobility of the hips, knees and ankles. A few changes were also made to the software to make the analyses more professional while keeping them easy to use.

The update is free for you if you already have a Scheinworks FDM Version! Please contact us if you have any questions. We will gladly provide you with more detailed information as part of a personal meeting.

NovaPED Shell insoles with heel plateau

NovaPED shell insole blanks are designed to correct abnormal foot positions. In order to achieve the desired treatment result, it is important that shoe and insole form a unit to guide the foot as effectively as possible.

Thanks to the heel rounding and the shell-shaped design, an optimal fit is achieved for the foot. This supports the redistribution of pressure and ensures the desired treatment result while also providing a high level of comfort.

The new heel plateau on the underside with its enlarged contact surface ensures greater stability. At the same time, the power transmission of the insole to the shoe floor is increased. The arch structures are effectively supported and the lower ankle joint is additionally stabilised. The heel plateau also has an integrated raised edge that supports natural walking.

NovaPED carbon - Expansion of the product range

Carbon fibres are industrially produced fibres made from carbon-containing starting materials. Thanks to their very high strength and very good power reproduction, carbon fibres are already being used successfully in racing and aeronautics. Our existing Carbon Edition series has been extended by further special insole blanks.

Hallux Rigidus - Insoles
The existing hallux rigidus variant with a flexible spring has been supplemented by two variants with a fixed rigidus spring. We offer a short and a long spring with different widths and cushioning, as well as a chassis version without padding. A suitable compensation insole is still available for all variants.

Carbon Edition - Special Plantar Fasciitis
A completely new variant in the range is plantar fasciitis. On the one hand, there is an insole blank with a conventional shape and heel spur recess. This model is characterised by its high comfort and extremely thin construction. On the other hand, a plantar fasciitis insole has also been developed that leaves space for the heel and the course of the tendon. With this model, a specially developed padded ring has been integrated on the underside of the insole chassis.

New corrective socks for flat feet and pes valgus

Flat feet and pes valgus are the most common foot deformities. They are characterised by the buckling of the heel and the flattening of the arches. This pushes the forefoot outwards so that it is no longer pointing in the direction of movement, which can result in further problems in the knees and hips.

These corrective socks for flat feet and pes valgus, which have been based on the latest biomechanical findings and made using cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, help to provide effective support to the foot and to correct the gait. The integrated tapes help to reposition the heel and also to bring the ball of the big toe into better contact with the ground.

The advantages at a glance:

  • Wearing time equals therapy time
  • Socks can be worn with all footwear
  • No skin irritations
  • Preventive and therapeutic application
  • Works via tension and not by compression
  • Three-dimensional stabilisation of the foot
  • Can be used for most foot problems

New NovaPED soft orthopaedic foot supports for people with diabetes or rheumatism

The NovaPED soft orthopaedic foot support is specially developed for people with diabetes or rheumatism. Pressure points can become a serious health risk for people with diabetes. The shape and material combination ensure even pressure distribution and avoidance of pressure peaks, which means the insole is also suitable for prophylactic use by people with diabetes.

Due to the good padding characteristics, feet altered by rheumatism can also be successfully cared for. The foundation is composed of inherently stable structural material with additional stiffening material for shaping. Padding is provided by a resilient, impact-absorbing material combination, which, depending on the version, is covered with moisture-absorbing microfibres. The anatomical shaping of the last includes a shell-like heel guide, a hollowing of the basis V and a retrocapital lateral support.

NovaPED S90 elements - Expansion of the materials range

Our NovaPED elements allow you individual adjustment of the NovaPED S90 insoles (insoles with film technology) - without any adhesive. The mounting parts are lined with an adhesive film. Through warming of the adhesive film and the film side of the insole, both components can be welded together. This saves you time, and the further processing during grinding is made considerably easier by the welded connection.

The existing product group has been expanded to include new materials. For example, the ARU®fant colour 'Stone' has been added. You can find further information in our brochure:

Are you familiar with our new NovaPED S90 elements?

The brand-new elements presented at the OTWorld trade show in Leipzig make individual adjustment of NovaPED S90 orthopaedic foot supports (film technology insoles) possible - simply through heating and without any adhesive.

The elements, made from EVA, are lined with an adhesive film. When the adhesive film and the film side of the foot support are heated, the components can be fused together without the use of an adhesive.

This saves you time, and further processing in the form of sanding is made considerably easier by the fused connection.

Two different elements in three sizes, with bevelled edges for easier shaping, are available to you.

  1. Heel elevation (6 mm)
  2. SupPro wedge (4 mm) for three different versions
    • Hindfoot pronation
    • Hindfoot supination
    • Forefoot pronation

Other options are provided by material sheets (approx. 19.5 × 39.5 cm) in thicknesses of 4 and 6 mm, which can be used for individual blanks.

You can customise the orthopaedic foot supports quickly and with minimal effort in just a few simple steps, from heating to a brilliant finish.

NovaPED S90 carbon edition - From motor racing to orthopaedic shoe technology

Carbon fibres are industrially produced fibres made from raw materials containing carbon. Thanks to their very high stability and rigidity with simultaneously low elongation at fracture, carbon fibres have already been successfully implemented in motor racing and aviation technology.

The combination of carbon and our S90 foot support technology provides several benefits:

  • Inherent stability
  • Extreme thinness and light weight
  • Flexible heel
  • Smooth transitions
  • Anti-slip protective film

In keeping with modern provision possibilities, the high-tech material carbon has been added to existing production processes. Our carbon orthopaedic foot supports can be perfectly combined and customised with the accessory parts from the NovaPED S90 elements range.

OST trade fair - New visitor records

A total of 3,852 visitors from almost 40 countries came to the city on the Rhine and used the industry meeting point to obtain and exchange information, to find out what’s new, and to further their knowledge. Participant numbers at the trade fair itself, as well as at the congress and parallel seminars, far exceeded those at previous events in 2011 and 2013 - almost all seminars were fully booked.

The 2015 industry meeting was to be an event in keeping with the tried-and-tested concept of short distances, so the trade fair and congress were located close to one another, with the congress and seminars taking place in new premises. Once again, a practice-oriented programme of talks was offered here, which was met with great interest from visitors from around the world.

We would like to thank the event organisers for their excellent work, and the visitors for the pleasant conversation and interest in our products.

NovaPED sports - Further development of the sport shoe insoles product line

Every sport has its own way of moving and its own set of strains. Due to the constant shifting of forces, there is a risk that the hips, knees or, in particular, the feet will be subjected to too much stress.

In order to reduce excess stress, relieve previously damaged structures and improve movement, we have developed our successful NovaPED sports insole models further. The newest findings from sports medicine were put to use in the design. Each model also has a new, stylish design. The high-quality synthetic blanks were produced using proven foil technology. Each model is adapted to a particular sport and contains specific padding and support elements. Our NovaPED sports insets are also characterised by their low height and high level of comfort.

The new prospectus will be available soon.

NovaPED exclusive with individual engraving

Now, you can design your personal NovaPED exclusive model to make it even more individual!

The new extra "laser engraving" selection can be used to laser a personal text into the cover material. Your name, initials or a date - the choice is yours. The field is predetermined, as only a specific keystroke is possible. During this process, you can choose between two fonts (Myriad Pro and Bradley Hand ITC).

What's more, you can now combine all three extras

Embroidery on the outer strap,
Fur as the material on the inner strap
and personal laser engraving

with one another! Who says you're not spoiled for choice?

NovaPED ESD insoles have been especially certified by an official testing institute for demanding requirements in combination with safety shoes. To mark the beginning of the new year, we would like to inform you about a few changes in this field.

Firstly, with E/D/E Einkaufsbüro Deutscher Eisenhändler (Association of German Hardware Dealers) and Engelbert Strauss (range of safety shoes, e.s.) we have gained two new cooperating partners. The NovaPED ESD insole system is now tested in combination with selected safety shoes from the following companies:

Further information is also available directly from our cooperation partners.

Secondly, the cover material 'Cambrell' has been replaced with the material 'ARU X-static ESD'. The first type tests with the new material have already been successfully completed. Additional certifications are to follow. All insoles which it was possible to cover with the old cover material can also continue to be used without a cover.

Stance Analysis, Gait Analysis, Running Analysis and Foot scan – three systems, one software

The SCHEINWORKS System allows using several measuring systems with only a single software. The core of the analysis is the treadmill with integrated pressure measuring plate. In combination with the optional synchronised SCHEINWORKS cameras, motion analysis can also be performed visually. The SCHEINWORKS DigiPED foot scanner, which can also be used as an individual measuring unit, complements the analysis. Whichever measuring and analysis systems you choose, we offer additionally large screens and computer with software installation.

New actiflex stock-program

The new actiflex stock-program for the Autumn/Winter collection is now available.
Our newly designed brochure presents 36 standard models and further models in width "K". In addition, three models for men can be selected for the coming season.
All models are identified by one of three new symbols. This makes it even easier to find exactly the right shoe for you and your requirements. It goes without saying that all models are supplied with exchangeable insoles. The risk of slipping is minimised by the heel curve which is specially adapted for insoles.
The first class materials used in the manufacture and ongoing quality controls make our actiflex comfort shoes special.
