The patented coil system in the heel is not the only feature of Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear® that provides impact reduction and encourages pain-free movement. The forefoot rocker bottom sole provides additional cushioning and facilitates a smooth gait to help you increase mobility.

How the Forefoot Rocker Works

During the normal gait cycle, impact is transferred from the heel towards the toes to propel you forward. Weight is transferred both up the kinetic chain to ankles, knees, hips and lower back as well as forward into the forefoot and toes. The spring-loaded heel both reduces impact to protect joints in the foot and lower body and returns energy to help make forward motion easier.

Full impact and returned energy can be problematic if the weight lingers at any point along the foot, but the forefoot rocker bottom sole is curved to quickly transfer impact from the heel to the forefoot and speed your foot through toe-off.

Conditions Aided by the Forefoot Rocker

While the forefoot rocker bottom sole helps all Z-CoiL wearers smoothly glide across unforgiving surfaces, they are especially beneficial to those who have fused ankles. When bones in the ankle are fused together, the normal range of motion is significantly reduced, which may result in a harder heel strike as the foot slaps down flat and a longer toe-off.

The combined action of the spring-loaded heel and forefoot rocker bottom create a double rocker that mimics some of the natural motion of the ankle joint, allowing a softer heel strike and speedy transition through the stages of the gait cycle.

The adjustability of the coil system balances abnormal gaits (ie. under-pronation and over pronation [supination]) to ensure the foot does note roll inward or outward excessively. Under or over-pronation can prematurely wear out joints and cause pain in the joints, knees, hips and back.
