Foot Levelers, the world’s leading provider of hand-crafted custom flexible orthotics serving multi-disciplinary professionals and clinicians, is pleased to announce the release of the XP3 Court Orthotic, an advanced custom orthotic that is expressly designed for amateur athletes, including fitness enthusiasts, weekend warriors, and individuals actively involved in recreational sports that are played on a firm surface, as well as professional athletes and teams competing in various sports disciplines. Optimizing biomechanics, enhancing performance and helping to reduce the risk of injuries, the XP3 Court Orthotic meets the needs of sports professionals such as coaches, athletic trainers, doctors of chiropractic and physical therapists seeking advanced orthotic solutions for their patient athletes and teams.
“The XP3 Court Orthotic represents a significant stride in sports-specific custom orthotics, addressing the unique demands of court sports that are played on unyielding, hard surfaces where quick lateral movements, sharp pivots and dynamic footwork can impact movement or result in injuries,” says Christine Foss, MD, DC, MS.Ed, ATC, DACBSP, ICSC, director of education and research, Foot Levelers, recognized consultant for the US Olympic Team and director and lead instructor of the Northeast College of Health Sciences Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician program.
Dr. Foss points to the unique technology that supports and aligns all three arches of the foot to enhance grip and stabilization and enhance function of the body’s entire kinetic chain.
“As a preventive healthcare tool, the XP3 Court Orthotic helps reduce the risk of ACL (knee) injuries and hip injuries as well as strains and sprains,” she continues. “Its shock-absorbing properties cushion high-impact movements, such as jumping and landing, minimizing stress on joints and muscles.”
Offering the stability, agility and alignment necessary for peak performance, the XP3 Court Orthotic boasts a range of features designed to support athletes competing in court sports:
- Foot Levelers’ proprietary 3 Arch Advantage®, providing support for all three arches of the foot, optimizes biomechanics and kinetic chain function.
