OrthoShock is a shoe insert which is said to absorb the shock of walking and provide the user an experience akin to walking on water. It is not a full-length insert, but only provides sufficient area for the heel to touch, which is where most of the shock occurs during walking or running.
The secret is non Newtonian fluid, which has been used in specialty shoes and inserts for several years. It has been suggested that non Newtonian based shoes and inserts can provide 30% better cushioning than other types of substances in shoes. Thus, it appears that OrthoShock by simply offering an insert rather than a full shoe, is bringing this technology to the masses at a reasonable cost.
We feel that those who need cushioning the most will be the most satisfied with OrthoShock. This product is competitively priced considering its high tech properties.
There are numerous shoe inserts on Amazon, many of them highly rated, proven, and inexpensive. There does, however, seem to be a lack of non Newtonian based shoes and inserts, which means OrthoShock may stand out among the competition.
OrthoShock brings high-tech non Newtonian technology to the masses with an insert which should give most users the sensation of better cushioning than standard inserts.
