Trex® Insoles - 6382, 6384 & 6386

St. Paul, Minn. (March 6, 2007) – Ergodyne today introduces Trex Footbeds, the newest addition to its protective footwear line. Trex provide workers with the support, shock absorption and heel-toe alignment needed to help keep feet comfortable and keep knees, hips and back in alignment.

“General-purpose shoe inserts may provide comfort to parts of the foot, but workers on their feet all day need more complete support to help reduce fatigue,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO of Ergodyne. “Trex Footbeds let feet relax by supporting more points of contact and helping reduce stress on of the rest the body.”

Trex Footbeds are available in three different models: Economy, Standard and High-Performance. All feature a deep heel and high arch to keep the foot in a comfortable position, as well as the Perfor-Air Ventilation system to maximize airflow under the foot. With their ionic silver-based Agion Antimicrobial treatment, Trex footbeds also fight against the bacteria, yeast, fungi and mold that often grow in work boots and shoes. The inserts—which replace a standard insole—are made from top-grade materials and designed to last as long as the shoe or boot they are used in. All are available sized to fit virtually any worker—from women’s size 4 to men’s size 15.5—and retail at $17.95 for the economy model (#6382), $19.95 for the standard model (#6384), and $23.95 for the high-performance model (#6386).

Both Economy and Standard footbeds feature NeoFoam pads, a blend of Dupont’s Engage® EVA foam and rubber that offers superb compression for shock dispersal and a gradual rebound for a soft and springy feel. This rubber-foam blend offers significant shock absorption and high resistance, making it a sound choice for workers who stand in one place for long periods of time.

The High-Performance footbed is best suited for workers who spend much of their day walking. Its ZeroRebound forefoot and heel pad are comprised of an advanced rubber-foam blend, which absorbs impact without measurable rebound. A rear foot control bar gives additional support to the back portion of the arch and creates comfortable, solid stability in all types of footwear.
