EVA Base
EVA is (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate) a light synthetic rubber, frequently used to make foot orthoses. EVA has excellent cushioning properties. We customise foot orthoses in a variety of hardness or softness depending on individual requirements.
EVA orthoses are versatile with both a vast array of applications and material combinations. They can be made accommodative such as TCI / TCO or with corrective elements.

Contra indication:
Not suitable if a very rigid device is needed.
Your EVA base foot orthoses are made using a thermoplastic process or computer aided milling which brings the material into the desired shape.
The EVA is often reinforced with a thin layer of flexible stiffener to provide added strength. The arch elements are made from soft but resilient foam to give your arch a strong but cushioning support. They are then covered with a soft full length layer. The EVA base foot orthoses are extremely versatile. Depending on your individual needs, material combination can vary from firm to super soft.
