USING THE DORSI-LITE™ WITH SANDALS

USING THE DORSI-LITE™ WITH SANDALS
AND WITH SHOES THAT DO NOT HAVE SHOELACES


NOTE: SELECTING THE RIGHT SHOE TO USE WITH THE DORSI-LITE™ IS VERY IMPORTANT IN ORDER TO REALIZE THE MOST COMFORTABLE FIT.

In addition to shoes that are fitted with shoelaces, the DORSI-LITE™ can be used with many types of sandals and shoes that have strap closures. WHEN USED WITH A SHOE OR SANDAL, THE DORSI-LITE’S™ LOWER STRAP IS NOT USED, and the shoe becomes an integral part of the support system, providing support by holding the bottom end of the device down at the instep. (See Instep Image)

NOTE: THE DORSI-LITE™ IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ALL TYPES OF SHOES AND SANDALS. BELOW ARE EXAMPLES OF SHOE AND SANDAL DESIGNS THAT MAY OR MAY NOT WORK WITH THE DORSI-LITE™.




RECOMMENDED STYLES



• Fig. A, shows an example of a shoe with straps having sufficient instep coverage to hold the DORSI-LITE™ to the instep well. THIS DESIGN IS RECOMMENDED, in addition to lace-up shoes.

 

• A shoe similar in design to Fig. B, with more limited instep coverage, may work, but you will not know for certain until you actually try it.





NOT RECOMMENDED

• A shoe with a design similar to Fig. C cannot hold the bottom end of the DORSI-LITE™ properly, since not enough of the foot’s instep is covered. The result will be not enough support.

 

• Fig. D, a slip-in, is not recommended since the shoe tightness cannot be controlled, possibly resulting in too little support, or, alternatively, making the fit of the shoe too tight.
