Flat Feet (Pes Planus)

A true flat foot is rare. Generally, a flat-footed person is only suffering from a functional flat foot caused by excess pronation. Excess Pronation causes the foot's arch to collapse & elongate giving the appearance of a flat foot. A functional flat foot is quite common and generally exhibits symptoms ranging from sore/tired feet to general leg fatigue and body aches.

VASYLI products are designed to control excess pronation (the common cause of functional flat feet and thereby restoring the foot's arch to normal)


This condition commonly occurs with women, however many men suffer from pain in the ball of the foot. Sometimes a callous develops in the centre of the foot and footwear may wear out in a similar fashion.

This condition causes a burning sensation in the ball of the foot and can become very painful. Ball of Foot Pain (Metatarsalgia) commonly occurs from rotation and dropping (plantarflexion) of the metatarsal bones along with excess pronation and weakening of the soft tissue (ligament & muscle) structures.

VASYLI products align the central three (3) metatarsal shafts using a inbuilt 5mm met raise to correctly position and maintain the Metatarsal bone position. By balancing the weight distribution over the five (5) metatarsal bones, this helps remove excess weight & friction which commonly causes the callous and burning sensation.

(Morton's Neuroma)

Commonly assocciated with Metatarsalgia (see previous ccondition), this condition is generally caused by entrapment of the interdigital nerve lying between the third and fourth metatarsal bones. Ball of Foot Pain (Morton's Neuroma) exhibits similar symptoms to Metatarsalgia, but may also cause numbness, tingling and discoloration of the third and fourth (lesser) toes.

VASYLI products may greatly assist in the early stages of Morton's Neuroma when damage to the nerve sheath is minimal. VASYLI products re-aligns the metatarsal shafts and prevents interdigital nerve jamming. Severe fibrosis of the interdigital nerve may require surgery. However, VASYLI products may prevent further problems post-operatively.


  1. Good opportunity for people who hesitate to go for therapies because they believe that therapy would make them spend quite a sum of money.

  3. What amazes me is how much knowledge has been attained. You can head to the doctor and in most instances, the trouble can be worked out. Something as small as a dislocated shoulder or arm (small as in issue, large in terms of pain).
