Dynamic Suspension Orthotics (DSO)
One step at a time.
"There are many effects of the SubioMed insole on knee and ankle kinematics/kinetics which are statistically significant as well as generally consistent across even this small number of patients.
Ground reaction force and kinetic data suggests a role of the insole for energy storage during weight acceptance and return at push off during gait."

"I'm impressed. The energy return is there and makes walking so much smoother."

Tame the effects of foot and ankle breakdown
Foot and ankle pathology is on the rise. Fusions increased from 8.2 to 20.2 cases per 100,000 people between 1994 and 2006*.
Movement keeps the human body healthy. But how can we stay active when musculoskeletal breakdown of the foot and ankle increases pain and compensation of pathomechanics?
Whether the foot and ankle pathology is acute, chronic, post-operative, or non-operative, Dynamic Suspension Orthotics (DSO) will make the gait more natural with less pain and compensation. This isn’t a traditional shoe insert. It’s a literal life changer.

Dynamic Energy Management
Dynamic Suspension Orthotics (DSO) features carbon-fiber engineering designed to use Ground Reaction Force during sagittal and frontal plane motion of stance phase. In other words, it just changed the recovery and prognosis game for good.
During each rocker of stance phase, segmental springs capture and manage kinetic energy, then sequentially delivery it to the next phase. Energy management and improved biomechanics through the entire gait cycle.
HINDFOOT SPRING — DECELERATION & ENERGY ABSORPTION
At heel strike, shock attenuation, GRF capture, and energy transfer into midstance.
MIDFOOT SPRING — DECELERATION & ENERGY ABSORPTION
Received energy creates an inverted leaf spring to support the arch and midtarsal joints.
FOREFOOT SPRINGS — ENERGY RETURN AND PROPULSIVE ASSIST
At forefoot loading, top spring supports the metatarsal parabola. At toe-off, both springs delivery propulsive assist.
Biomechanics lab clinical study in-shoe sensing, visual gait analysis, and clinical observations confirm patients move better with SubioMed.*
DYNAMIC SUSPENSION ORTHOTICS (DSO) EFFECTS ON GAIT:
– Less pain, fewer symptoms
– More natural movement, better comfort
– Longer average ambulation
Vertical Ground Reaction Force (Shock)
– Reduced force, better symmetry, less compensation
– Longer stride, slower cadence, reduced double support time
Range of Motion
– Increased ankle, decreased metatarsal parabola dorsiflexion ROM
Limb to Limb Symmetry
– Reduced guarding on painful limb
– Reduced need for normal limb to compensate
