Orthaheel Footwear now in India
SSL-TTK Limited, announced the formal launch of Orthaheel footwear products in India. Mr. T R Venkatesh, the Managing Director of SSL-TTK Ltd & Dr. Phillip Vasyli, the founder of Orthaheel unveiled the footwear range.
Addressing the media on the occasion Dr. Vasyli said, "By nature our feet is designed for soft natural surfaces like sand and soil; but today we spend most of our time walking on unnatural and hard surfaces which force our feet to pronate (roll over) excessively to gain ground contact. Excess pronation could lead to weakening of arch, tilting of the heel or rotation of leg, which may lead to heel pain, back of heel pain or knee pain. Orthaheel orthotics is scientifically designed to align your feet and address the problems arising from excess pronation".
Commenting on the launch of Orthaheel in India, Mr. T R Venkatesh, MD, SSL-TTK said, "Orthaheel complements our existing range of foot care and foot wear products represented through our Scholl brand in India. Being a specialist in foot care domain, Orthaheel fits well into our brand portfolio as we bring in international quality footwear products and solutions to the Indian market".
SSL-TTK had earlier last year launched the Orthaheel shoe inserts, which has been found to be extremely effective in treating the conditions referred earlier. However these can be used only by people who wear shoes. Unfortunately, in India a many people do not wear shoes, especially ladies who are more prone to heel pain and knee pain. To address the largely slipper / sandal wearing market SSL-TTK has now launched the Orthaheel foot wear range in India. The Orthaheel footwear has foot-bed which incorporates the same profile as the Orthotic inserts thereby delivering the same benefit offered by the Orthaheel shoe insert.
Priced between Rs.1500 to Rs. 4500 the Orthaheel footwear range will be retailed through select retail outlets like Lifestyle, Metro, Reliance and others.
The current orthaheel products are available in different size and clours, Trek Sandals for men, Adjsustalble sandals for women, Bjondi advanced sandals for men, Noosa advanced sandals for women, Wave Slipper ( Uni Sex), Sport shoes for men and and women
