YOUR HEALTH IS OUR PRIORITY:
During the continued COVID-19 pandemic, DKOS is offering minimal contact orthotic assessments and fittings in addition to our in-person assessments.

When you run, your foot acts like a spring even more so than it does when you're walking. It absorbs the force of a landing and then springs back to push energy into your stride.
An orthotic designed for running, needs to be designed to support running movement. If your orthotic is made out of a rigid piece of plastic, it's taking away the natural spring in your step. This often results in pain and decreased performance.
Efficient, neutral leg movement, and the use of your body’s ability to store and release elastic energy are key components in your running stride, custom running orthotics enhance your natural movement.
Works with your body
How we improve on nature
An orthotic can guide guide your foot and ankle, helping to keep them in a more neutral position. This will let the power from your legs to travel through your foot, and into your stride in the most efficient way possible.
Running Specific Customizations
The materials we use in your orthotics, and the pattern in which those materials are laid down, allows for optimal rear-foot cushioning, along with rear and mid-foot reinforcements.
This way we can provide dynamic support and stability during the propulsion phase, to allow your foot to function the way it was meant to.
John Erik Rasmussen
His running orthotics are built specifically to John’s running stride and shoe in order to make him as efficient as possible.
John's cycling orthotics are designed to help him transfer maximum power to his pedals, without losing power to inefficient foot movements. They also help reduce hot spots and high pressure areas in his bike shoes on long, grueling rides.
When not racing or training, John uses a custom recovery orthotic to allow his body the best chance to recover.

There’s a reason why Enertor’s new PX1 shock absorbing technology is changing the future of the insole market
In the world of sport, now more than ever, injury prevention is becoming crucial in helping to keep people active. Technology has improved in helmets, gum shields, and shin pads. However 90% of impact comes through your feet with little realization of the damage this can do to the body.
The feedback from elite runners concluded that they wanted lighter insoles, more shock absorption, whilst having that all important protection from injury. After several years of development and over 20 years of knowledge in the insole industry, we have launched PX1 shock absorbing technology. This material technology is the first to be developed specifically for protecting feet and the body from the ground forces. See the following graph to compare against the leading insole competitor
