Balkefors Comfort is a system in which the user can easily make foot beds (inserts) in a closed kinetic chain. With the Balkefors Orthopaedic System, the moulding of the insert is made in a weighted manner, with a so called moulding cushion placed under the foot. The foot is placed in a neutral position for the moulding, and then insert is ready for modifications immediately following the moulding. The system offers new opportunities for treating problems resulting from foot injuries.
We have tested the functions and quality of the insert for many years with elite athletes, including Jenny and Sanna Kallur (track and field), Elfsborg Soccer, Redbergslid Handball, Marcus Ljungkvist (pro cyclist), Johan Wissman (track and field), Swedish National Ski Team and Mattias Ekström (race car driver). Many different practitioners work with our system. What they all have in common is that they have all undergone our training course.
Upon completion of the course, you will:
- be familiar with the anatomy of the foot
- understand how misalignments in the foot can cause injuries
- be able to make insoles
The training course covers:
- Moulding cushion
- Diploma certifying successful course completion
