    This new technology provides the following advantages:
  • No messy casting required
  • Fast, comfortable procedures
  • Precise 3D imaging of all foot contours
  • 100% accuracy eliminates re-fitting
  • Lighter, more flexible, and more durable materials used
  • CAD controlled to CNC milling and finishing
  • Compression stockings

    There are two types of Compression stockings; Gradient and anti-embolism. Gradient compression stockings are designed to remedy impaired “Musculovenous pump” performance due to incompetent leg vein valves. They are woven in such a way that the compression level lessens towards the top of the hose. Doctors will typically recommend these stockings for those who are prone to getting blood clots, edema, and blood pooling in the legs and feet from prolonged periods of sitting or inactivity. Anti-embolism compression stockings are commonly referred to as TED (Thrombo Embolic Deterrent) hose. They are used to support the venous and lymphatic systems of the leg. Unlike gradient compression stockings, anti-embolism hose deliver an equally distributed amount of compression at the ankle and up the leg. This compression, when combined with the muscle pump effect of the calf, aids in circulating blood and lymph fluid through the legs (in non-ambulatory patients). Compression wear has also been adopted by the sports science industry. Various garments have been developed to improve the efficiency of muscles by stabilising muscles and improving circulation/ lactic acid removal. A notable product range is the Skins range of products. Today, compression stockings are available in a wide range of opacities, colors, styles and sizes, making them virtually indistinguishable from regular hosiery or socks.

    What is a pedicure you ask? A pedicure is a set of procedures that are performed on the feet to treat or prevent negative health conditions and to enhance their overall appearance.

    Benefits of Pedicure:

  • Your feet take a beating, and if you happen to be carrying extra weight on your frame, your feet get the brunt of it. The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to about 115,000 miles over a lifetime. Comparing in terms of cars, not every one will drive a car that has 115,000 miles, especially if it hasn’t been properly maintained.
  • Whether you go to a salon or do self pedicures, there are health benefits in properly maintaining your feet. Cutting, clipping and cleaning of the nails prevents nails from growing inward and causing infection. The elimination of dirt and bacteria from your feet will also help prevent nail diseases and disorders and helps eliminate foot odor.
  • Exfoliation, or the sloughing off of dead skin cells, prevents the cells from accumulating and causing bunions or corns, which can be painful. Removal of the dead skins cells also encourages newer skin cell growth which creates a smoother, more appealing foot.
