Listen up, medical professionals! Alongside our custom and premolded footbeds for recreation and exercise, FootBalance provides specialized, affordable medical footbeds for patients suffering from severe foot problems and misalignment related conditions.  The custom footbeds are created while the foot is in the correct, neutral position.  If necessary, FootBalance can add padding, support, lifts, etc. to help guide the motion of the lower limbs towards a centered alignment.

Improve strength, stamina and coordination by skipping. It is an inexpensive form of exercise that you can do anywhere.

By skipping you can improve your fitness and coordination in the simplest of ways and it’s fun too. When you jump on the spot, it is primarily the ankles that are active with your calf muscles doing a lot of the jumping work.  Your anterior thigh and buttocks are also getting a workout.  Even if your calf muscles are strong they need to work even harder to give you that lift as you jump through the loop.

With spring quickly approaching, Mother Nature is going to flip-flop between ice and snow in many areas of North America before she finally decides to head towards summer. Such variable weather can bring dangerous outdoor conditions. Melting snow and rain can often turn into ice and slick conditions overnight as the temperature drops. While you’re continuing to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle outside, be sure to take the proper safety precautions.
