Wearing Materialise Phits Insoles may cause sore muscle or increased pressure on your feet at the beginning. This is completely normal as Materialise Phits Insoles will guide your gait into a differently than you were used to. Some people don’t have any adaptation problems, others may feel some discomfort or their feet will hurt in the beginning. Make sure you give your feet and body the time to get used to Materialise Phits Insoles and train your feet to adapt to their new position. Day 1: wear your Phits Insoles 1 hour only Day 2: go for 2 hours Day 3 and 4: Try to wear your Phits Insoles for a half day and take them out of your shoes for the rest of the day. Day 5: Try to wear your Phits Insoles all day. Don’t ignore the signals your body’s sending you. If you feel pain in your feet or the rest of your body, take the orthotics out for the rest of the day and start over the next day wearing them for a half day.

What about maintenance?
