Title (EN) METATARSAL ARCH SUPPORT
(FR) SUPPORT D'ARCHE METATARSIENNE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A metatarsal arch support (50) is described, in which the support (50) is made of a resilient material having a raised section of such size and shape as to roughly match and fill the open space that exists between the insole of the shoe and the portion of the foot that spans the second, third, and fourth metatarsals, which normally constitutes an arch when the foot is supporting body weigth. Shoes typically exert pressure, causing the metatarsal arch to flatten. Use of the arch support prevents this undesirable effect.
(FR)L'invention concerne un support d'arche métatarsienne (50), ledit support étant fait d'un matériau souple comportant une partie surélevée dont la forme et la taille ont été choisies pour remplir à l'espace ouvert qui existe entre la semelle intérieure de la chaussure et la partie du pied qui correspond aux deuxième, troisième et quatrième métatarses, qui constituent normalement une arche lorsque le pied supporte le poids du corps. Les chaussures exercent normalement une pression qui aplatit l'arche métatarsienne; l'utilisation du support d'arche permet de contrer cet effet indésirable.
