The soft ViscoHeel® cushion absorbs shock loads on the ankle, knee, and hip. This relief reduces pain that is primarily caused above, not below, the heel, such as when the Achilles tendon is inflamed, when a bump, known as Haglund’s deformity, has formed, or in cases of osteoarthritis of the knee and hip. The cushion protects the joints and spine, as well as the tendons and ligaments, with every step.

The viscoelastic shock absorber
The ViscoHeel heel cushion provides a soft cushion for the heel and offers instant relief for acute heel pain. It absorbs impact to keep pressure off the ankle, knee, and hip. Pain caused by pressure is therefore reduced. The resulting relief is felt all the way into the spine and particularly reduces strain on tendons, ligaments, and calf muscles.
Also helps to alleviate Achilles tendon discomfort
The heel cushion can be very helpful in cases where the cause of pain is located above the heel, rather than under it – such as a painful Achilles tendon (achillodynia) or Haglund’s deformity. The heel cushion can reduce the swelling quicker in inflamed Achilles tendons. It provides relief in cases of Haglund’s deformity.
Comfortable foot climate
ViscoHeel offers an anatomical fit and optimally adapts to the shape of the foot and shoe. The hindfoot is gently guided during the heel-to-toe movement to promote a natural movement while walking. The heel cushion is made of high-quality, non-slip silicone that is gentle on the skin, easy to clean, and particularly durable.
