Foot Levelers Introduces AM7™, the Brand New Custom-Made Functional Orthotic Designed Just for Teens Ages 13-18

AM7 Provides Healthy, Comfortable and Durable Support—Designed Just for Teens’ Active Lifestyles


ROANOKE, VIRGINIA—July 11, 2016—Foot Levelers is excited to introduce its newest innovation in custom-made functional orthotics: AM7, designed for teens ages 13-18. Research shows that children and teens can benefit from orthotic support by helping to establish healthy posture early on. A balanced pedal foundation can also help prevent injuries and improve biomechanics.

AM7 features:

  • Super durability for teens’ active lifestyles
  • Odor protection designed specifically for teens
  • 3 Arch AdvantageTM to promote healthy posture, help prevent injury and improve biomechanics


AM7 is available with Foot Levelers’ Posture Protect Program™, for savings with each replacement orthotic for the rapidly growing teen. It’s the perfect “step up” for young patients who have enjoyed the support and protection of Foot Levelers’ Ultra Young Soles®, designed for Ages 5–12. Ultra Young Soles® functional orthotics can help establish healthy posture as kids grow up, from the ground up.


During growth, the normal development of the pelvis and the spine will suffer if there is a foot imbalance. Research shows a budding athlete’s skill level—even running at recess—can be significantly affected. Later on, foot problems from childhood can interfere with adolescent or adult spinal function, which can result in poor biomechanics and accelerated degenerative changes in the knees, hips and spine. AM7 and Ultra Young Soles are developed specifically to address these challenges and to protect the growing body.

Foot Levelers Makes Major Investment in Production Efficiency, Employee Saftey

ROANOKE, Virginia — November 5, 2015 — In an effort to improve process time and to eliminate potential for injury from heavy lifting, Foot Levelers recently invested in two Roll Vertical Carousels by Summit Storage Solutions. The carousels help organize and dispense the large rolls of material (up to 28 inches outside diameter) used to produce top and bottom covers for Foot Levelers custom orthotics.

These simple, sturdy carousels are operated using only two options, “Up” and “Down,” and replace forklifts, step systems and the need for complicated keyboards and interfaces that are hard to use and easy to break. This makes materials quickly and easily accessible to operators and removes the need for advanced training or maintenance, providing continual “uptime” and reducing costs.

Says Chad Warren, Lab Operations Manager of Foot Levelers, “Securing the Summit carousel was the right thing to do for the company, but most of all for our employees. The safety and comfort of our team members has always been of paramount importance to us. The carousel is not only easy to operate, it’s far less physically taxing, making it less likely that an employee suffer from strain or injury.”

Preventing Back Injury: A Special Cause for Foot Levelers

Foot Levelers custom orthotics are research-proven to treat low back pain and prevent injury, so the carousel investment is well aligned with the company’s mission and goals. Studies have also shown that custom orthotics, combined with Chiropractic care, improved symptoms, activities of daily living, sport and recreation, and quality of life in workers whose job requires them to stand at least 6 hours daily. (As an employment benefit, all Foot Levelers employees are provided with custom orthotics and encouraged to wear them daily).


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than one million workers suffer back injuries each year. Back injuries account for one of every five injuries or illnesses in the workplace, and 1/4th of all compensation indemnity claims involve back injuries. The principal causes are “lifting, placing, carrying, holding and lowering [of] manual materials handling” according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Meet Foot Levelers' Abby Oliver: Richmond U. Turned Pro Basketball Star Now In Training For Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon

ROANOKE, VIRGINIA–MARCH 2016–Abby Oliver isn’t “just” an integral member of the Foot Levelers’ Customer Service team. She’s also a decorated former University of Richmond basketball star who later played pro overseas—and now she’s in training for the notorious Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon on April 16th. Known as America’s Toughest Road Marathon, the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon will also be Abby’s first marathon.


Of course, Abby is no stranger to athletic achievement. At the University of Richmond, she ended a stunning four-year career in 2012 as the program's seventh leading scorer (1,488 points) and the nation's best at the charity stripe (106-113, 94%). Abby was an All Conference first team selection after leading the league in points per game (16.5). She was ranked fourth in three point field goals (152), second in games played (129), eighth in free throws (296) and ninth in field goals (519). After college, Abby was recruited by Israeli professional team Elizur Netanya, where she played for one season.


Abby joined the Foot Levelers Customer Service team in December 2015 and quickly proved herself to be as hardworking on the job as she is on the court. At Foot Levelers, she is responsible for helping some of our 20,000+ healthcare professional customers choose the right custom orthotics for their patients. Abby knows first-hand how important quality foot support is in keeping the body pain- and injury-free; in fact, she wears Foot Levelers’ XP3+™ custom orthotics for runners in her own training. “They’re extremely light,” she says of XP3+, “but very shock absorbent. Throughout my training, I haven’t had any injuries or set-backs and that’s really rare for a runner, especially for training for a full marathon.”


Abby started training in mid-December, typically clocking a 5-8 mile run before coming in to work, 3 to 4 times a week. On the weekends, “I do longer runs, incorporating some of the mountains that are going to be in the race,” she says. While she admits she’s “a little nervous” about taking on America’s toughest road marathon, Abby’s friends, family and colleagues at Foot Levelers are behind her all the way!
