Using the Podotrack and Measuring Your Feet
You’ll need an assistant to do the actual tracing and measuring of your feet. You should be barefoot and you’ll need to be sitting on a chair with your knee bent at a 90-degree angle. It is best to do this on a hard floor with a smooth surface. Please mark exactly where you measured you foot with its measurements ON the Podotrack and in customer form. The instructions below are for your assistant!
Begin by removing the protective layer from the transparent plastic layer.
Remove the protective layer completely.
Place the transparent plastic layer on the carbon paper. Do not smooth the plastic layer onto the carbon paper, as this will create an impression.
Remove the two adhesive strip covers on the back and place/stick the Podotrack on the floor (must be a hard surface).
Lift the foot up and place it over the Podotrack - place the foot on the Podotrack as pictured below. Remember to have your knee bent at 90 degrees.
Using the BLUE pen, trace the foot by holding the pen at a 90-degree angle
Now stand and walk off of the Podotrack.
Lift the transparent plastic layer off the carbon paper (be careful to pull the carbon paper from its edge and try to do this in one smooth movement).
Remove the carbon paper.
Smooth the transparent plastic layer onto the bottom white grid paper.
Place the foot back on the Podotrack.
Measure the “Ball Circumference” around the ball of the foot. The ball of the foot is the portion of the foot where the “knuckles” of the foot are located. We recommend for all measurements, that you use the Sharpie to mark on the Podotrack where exactly the measurements where taken and write the actual measurement next to the mark. We prefer that you measure in millimeters. Also, pull the tape fairly tight.
Measure the “Waist Circumference” behind the ball of the foot.
Measure the “Instep” around the arch of the foot.
Measure the “Heel Circumference” around the back of the heel and over the front of the instep.
Measure the leg circumference around the ankle joint
Measure the leg circumference 15cm, 20cm, and 25cm from the floor
Mark any hammer or claw toes and indicate their height.
Stand up and fully weight the foot. Using the RED pen, trace the foot by holding the pen at a 90-degree angle. (This will show us how much your foot elongates when you stand).
The completed Podotrack should look something like this
Repeat the process with your other foot.
Please put on the socks you prefer to wear and repeat step 11 through 16 your feet.
We suggest you take a few picture of your feet (front, back, side, and arch of both feet) and send them to us with your Podotracks. This is especially important if there are any specific features of your feet that you want to be sure we’re aware of.
Send the completed Pododracks and photographs to:
