Variable Reflex Activating Pods

BioPods Performance Insoles feature Variable Reflex Technology (VRT 200) Pods. These Pods deliver a medium-intensity stimulus level that is best suited for everyday activities and most sports in flexible, loosely laced footwear. The Pods are made from our proprietary thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) materials, which are extremely springy and durable.

As you use the BioPods insoles, the Pods retain their volume and springiness while the specialized insole body gradually compacts slightly around them. This causes a gentle increase in stimulus intensity that allows the neuromuscular systems throughout your feet, legs, hips, and back to safely and naturally adjust as your protective reflex mechanics are retrained.

BioPods Performance VRT 200 Pods work like an exercise program in your shoes, applying a varied pressure to the center of your foot’s arches. This allows your body to naturally stimulate the reflex mechanisms that enhance your day-to-day activities, including sports. They provide superior comfort and optimize pain-free function throughout your feet to your legs, hips, and back.

Performance Insoles are ideal for all arch heights and provide a looser, less restrictive fit in your footwear to encourage free, yet supportive movements for your entire lower body. Simply choose your size and slip these sports insoles into your footwear for enhanced performance, whatever the activity may be.

    A VERY, VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER! About a year ago, while on vacation with my wife, after a series of long walks my feet started to really hurt. I have flat feet, but rarely experienced this much pain. When I got back home, the pain didn’t go away and one of my feet was so tender I was beginning to limp. I went out and bought some over-the-counter orthotics that cushioned my feet, but they didn't solve the problem. Eventually, my feet hurt so much I went to a podiatrist. The exam and x-rays cost over $1,000. Fortunately, Medicare covered much of it, however, it still cost me a few hundred bucks. But I figured it was worth it if my feet were ever to feel good again. I was ultimately presented with my first ever, custom-made, orthotic shoe inserts; a pair of foam cushion inserts – much like the over counter ones –- however these were mounted on top of personalized, molded plastic heels and arches. After adjusting to them for a few weeks my feet felt better. Unfortunately, as the months passed, some of the original discomfort started to come back. I casually mentioned my foot history to a friend who told me that recently he stumbled upon bioPods and they completely changed his life; in addition to curing his foot pain, they even made his back problems go away as well. My friend explained the mechanics behind bioPods and that basically they undo all the bad things that shoes have done to your feet over the years; that shoes are constructed to give your feet support and make them comfortable, but that in doing so, your feet aren’t allowed or encouraged to do any work, so they don’t operate like feet are supposed to. And that bioPods are scientifically designed to get your feet working like feet again. My friend was so positive about his experience with bioPods that he insisted on buying me a pair as a gift. He assured me that if they didn’t work, the company has a money back guarantee so he wouldn’t be out a penny. Well, I tried them out and they were totally amazing from the very first day. The inserts made my feet feel like they were simultaneously released from prison and getting a gentle foot massage. I began wearing the bioPods religiously, transferring them from one pair of comfortable pair of shoes to another. I got so used to wearing them and how good they made my feet feel, that when I walked around the house in my Ugg bedroom slippers, which were the most comfortable shoes I owned, I missed the bioPods. I eventually transferred them into my Uggs as well. Well, here I am, two months later and my feet never felt better. And, here’s the crazy part, -- my back feels better, too. Apparently, it’s all connected. So, to make a long story just a bit longer, while my friend paid for my bioPods, I didn’t quite get them for free. I was so grateful, I bought him and his wife dinner, and afterwards we all went for a nice, long, pain-free walk.

    After 30 years or wearing insoles I have had to wear Orthotics for over 30 years, probably tried every one on Walgreens' shelf and have worn custom made inserts as well. Never have any felt as good as bioPods on my feet. Because of my foot problems, my trainer has had me roll a golf ball under my arches daily. I realize that wearing bioPods is like rolling a soft ball under my feet all day. Now my legs and back feel much better. Thanks for developing this great product! Cliff Bregstone Lincolnshire, IL

    Biopods Review I am very satisfied with my Biopods Performance Insoles. As a nearly 60 year old pushing nearly 260 lbs., I would not be able to jog 4 miles every other day without them.Having used this product several times, I feel like they have a kind of "PF Flyer"quality to them, as I have actually shortened my 80 lap time in the gym by 4 minutes. Healthwise, without the ability to walk or jog without pain, my cholesterol and blood pressure numbers would be through the roof. Your insoles help me exercise and keep my numbers in the safe range. Sincere thanks to you.

    Great so far! I need support (my Achilles tendons hurt if I walk barefoot). With these, I don't even feel they are there, but I know they are working as there is no pain.

    Having some trouble The Biopods are very comfortable. I had been using the hard orthotics for decades which eliminated the callus’ from the centre area between the balls of my feet and the ones at the outer edges of the balls of my feet. These callus’ are growing back. The first one started in the centre of my right foot, and the rest have followed. I’ve been meaning to phone you to discuss with you. Thank you, Arlene

    Insoles that make sense. As a yoga instructor and acupuncturist focused on sports injuries and pain conditions, I have long been suspect about overly supportive running shoes and orthotics. Our feet evolved over the millennia to provide proper sensation and support. It doesn't make sense to dull the senses and ignore the innate intelligence of the body. That said, modern society (and cold weather) make it difficult to walk barefoot. These insoles are a great way to allow the foot to move in the way nature intended while still protecting the feet. I have been walking and working with them in my shoes for about a month and the foot / leg fatigue I typically experience after a long day has decreased significantly. Thank you for creating such an intelligent product!

    Work Really Well! This is my second pair so that I can keep them in my indoor shoes. This system works brilliantly for me. I can't even feel they are there, but I know they are working, and they may also be healing! Up to now, if I walked even a little bit without shoes, my feet hurt. After a month or so, I can walk barefoot for a while without feeling any pain.

    Love these! I received the inserts a few weeks ago and quickly started moving them from shoe to shoe because I like them so much. I was born with severe club feet and have had operations seven times on each foot to reposition bones and tendons. As a result, I have a very limited range of motion in my feet. What I like best about the inserts is the way they stimulate the middle part of the bottom of my foot and make me more aware--in a good way--of the way I walk. Better still, they are very comfortable. I see a few more pairs in my future...

    Seasoned cyclist I am a seasoned mountain biker who had raced several seasons with many aches and pains. My chiropractor suggested that I try these shoe inserts and my lower back pain was greatly reduced after a short period of time. I wear BioPods now in all my shoes and I never get off the bike in pain. These insoles have improved my quality of sport and life in general.

    purchasing biopodz online there were some glitches with the website as I am listed as a practitioner. I have used the old product for a long time so I am very satisfied with the new insoles. they are light and comfortable. the pods tend to fall out easily. I DO recommend for strengthening the feet. Not convinced any body alignment occurs, as suggested in the original website.

    willing to try it a bit longer…fingers crossed! so far… nothing to report. Except my plantar fasciais is still hurting as are my knees. I feel nothing even close to a “mild stimulation”. But I am willing to give it time, as I said.
