Silicone Heel Cushion – Silicare

Heel Cushion – Silicare

 

Silicare Silicone Heel Cushions are made in India using German machinery and raw materials to give you a  world-class product at an affordable price. Cheaper competitor products are made from industrial silicone (which is not bio-compatible) or gels (which have less shock absorption).

Silicone is a man-made product. It is manufactured from sand (silica) and oxygen. Due to its purity, it is a preferred component in the medical industry. It is resistant to extreme pressures and temperatures.

Purpose of using a Silicone Heel Cushion

When we walk, the heel of the foot hits the ground in each step. This transmits a shock from ground through the heel, up the knee and hip and to the back. Over time, this may result in heel pain, knee pain and back pain. A heel cushion will absorb most of the shock and prevent it from being transmitted upwards.
