How Does The Patent Pending Design Work For You

Sustainably Engineered To Feel Less Foot Pain

Our orthotics aren't just comfortable footwear - they're a unique & innovative tool for maintaining your health & well-being. Added strength to stand all day comes from our unique thinSOLE mesh. Get the support you need for foot issues without the cost of custom orthotics.

Our mesh is nearly impossible to create with traditional manufacturing methods, giving you exclusive rigid insoles & thin shoe inserts with one-of-a-kind fit. They also provide more support & stability for the foot, providing better overall body mechanics & reducing foot pain.

What are you waiting for? Feel the difference for yourself.

Many companies use outdated methods to carve & cut blocks of raw material. Our process:

  • Adds raw material with precision
  • Stronger, lighter products with more complex geometries
  • Less waste than conventional manufacturing

For example, PORON™ foam is a urethane companies carve up in a factory. This leaves behind small particles of waste in the form of harmful microplastics.

Close up view of the thinSOLE mesh

Insoles & Inserts With A Remarkable Mesh

Our orthotics have a unique texture & that's by design. The geometric pattern is actually our incredibly strong thinSOLE mesh. It's based on an equation discovered by NASA scientists decades ago. The performance of our mesh is:

  • 7% better than a honeycomb-shaped pattern
  • 10% better than a diamond-shaped pattern

Research shows our mesh pattern is 10 times stronger than solid material. Not only is it stronger, but it uses 90% less material. That makes for lighter insoles & a better environment.

Exotic Materials For An Exclusive Feel

Thermoplastic Polyurethane, or TPU, is highly durable & flexible, making it our exclusive choice for insoles & shoe inserts. It's also known for its comfort & ability to conform to the shape of your foot, providing a more comfortable fit compared to stiffer materials like silicone.

So why settle for silicone or PORON™ insoles when you can have the best of both worlds? Our rigid insoles & FSA eligible orthotic inserts offer the support & stability you need, absorbing shock to reduce foot pain. Try thinSOLE today & feel the difference for yourself.

TPU offers an impressive balance of mechanical properties:

  • Excellent wear & tear resistance
  • High tensile strength
  • Good load-bearing capacity
  • Unique vibration dampening
Why Choose TPU Over PORON™ Or Silicone?

With our insoles, arch supports, and heel cups you can enjoy the feel of custom orthotics at a fraction of the cost. In addition to high performance benefits, our choice of TPU is also a more sustainable choice compared to silicone or PORON™. It's more easily recyclable & has a lower environmental impact during production. By choosing Project Biotech, you can enjoy high-performance & sustainable footwear that supports your health & well-being.

TPU is part of our commitment to sustainability & reducing our environmental impact. We also chose recyclable zip lock bags for shipping insoles. These durable & cost-effective bags are made from recycled materials & they save space on delivery trucks. They can be reused & recycled multiple times, reducing waste & conserving natural resources.
