Postural Reflex Orthotics

Healthy feet

The Better Balance Orthotics are designed to stimulate various muscles in the foot that connect to five muscle chains in the body for postural control. We use Kinesiology muscle tests to determine which plantar muscles are weak. The  Orthotic is a thin combination of rubber and synthetic suede containing pockets that are filled with Poron® rubber designed to stimulate but not support the selected plantar muscles.


Life starts with a single fertilised egg which is covered by connective tissue. With each division of the egg the covering goes with it so that at birth, trillions of divisions later, every cell is in touch with every other by this connective tissue covering. Connective tissue is made of collagen which is a liquid crystal and therefore a semi conductor carrying positive charges (protons) to all parts of the body in conjunction with the central nervous system. Gravity causes the protons to line up in five particular muscle chains to control posture and each chain has its own first link in a related muscle in the foot. The other property of a liquid crystal is the piezo-electrical effect which is the conversion of mechanical pressure to electrical energy. The Better Balance Orthotics have pressure points that induce an energy flow that modifies the actions of the muscle chains to help produce therapeutic benefits.


As most of us wear shoes and walk on hard surfaces, proper reflex stimulation of the growing foot doesn’t occur and therefore we get muscle imbalances. This can be seen by looking at how our shoes wear. An uneven wearing at the heels means that each side of the body is getting a different stimulation with each footstep, and this may be balanced by wearing BB Orthotics. For more information go to


All painful postural conditions caused by muscular imbalance as a result of a faulty foot stimulation. These include:

  • Flat feet
  • Claw feet
  • Knock knees
  • Excessive pronation and supination
  • Scoliosis
  • Plantar fascilitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Painful knees and hips
