System Rx History

System Rx evolved through a study of the mathematical relationships between the shape of the foot as it rests in its neutral position and the resulting shapes of orthotics prescribed by foot care providers. These relationships are usually achieved by technicians trained in the art of Biomechanics. Mathematically, the foot is a measurable blend of three dimensional shapes. Imagining the foot as its length, width, and arch heights allows us to mathematize the shapes of orthotics as well, simplifying the "art of Biomechanics."

The Analysis

Further study of over 133,000 pairs of orthotics shows that certain foot shapes are used much more often than others. Of the thousands of shapes in the system, 99 shapes occurred 70% of the time. Most feet fall into a relatively small range of measurable dimensions. For example, most heel widths range form 40mm to 77mm, medial arches at their apex along the 1st metatarsal shaft range from 14mm to 23mm in height, and foot length from the posterior heel to the bisection of the 1st metatarsal head range from 118mm to 208mm (shoe sizes 1 – 15).

System Rx Orthotics


Individuals who have experienced the benefits of custom foot orthotics know just how profound proper arch supports can be.  Correctly sized and supportive orthotics have an enormously positive effect on many lives.  But why is there such a mystery around these devices?  Capturing the shape of the foot and manufacturing an orthotic to fit that shape is really quite simple.  Sizes and shapes can be described with numbers, and mathematics is a truly universal language.  KLM's System Rx Orthotics are the simple and beautiful result of applying mathematics to foot orthotics.  After studying thousands of foot orthotics made for foot care professionals nationwide, KLM Labs realized that 99 shapes repeated themselves 70% of the time.  These shapes became the System Rx Shells, which you can order sized precisely to your unique foot length, heel width, and arch heights, at the correct rigidity for your weight and activity level!  Watch the video above to learn more about correctly sizing yourself with System Rx Technology, only available at KLM Labs.
