Feet Theraphy

There are foot conditions or foot deformities such as bunions, hammertoes, or corns and plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a painful inflammatory condition of the plantar fascia, the connective tissue on the sole of the foot. Such condition is causing discomfort and pains to those people who are afflicted with it. In such case, they cannot just buy sandals or footwear that look elegant and classy, however, lack the comfort as well as the healthy and therapeutic benefits. Nowadays, there are shops that are manufacturing orthotic sandals. These sandals are designed to be comfortable and medically beneficial. They can be adjusted and are customizable to perfectly fit the individual’s foot depth and arch thereby avoiding pain and discomfort. Therefore, to an individual who is wise and health conscious, they should not be after looks but consider the therapeutic and health benefits of the sandals that they buy.


A Different Ring

What are retaining rings? Are they meant the different kinds of rings like the engagement and wedding rings that are worn by lovers and couples to keep them in a binding covenant to stay together? Well, the answer is definitely a NO although there is a similar purpose in using them. While engagement rings and wedding rings are used to bind the couple in a covenant of union, the retaining rings are used to fasten and hold together the components or assemblies onto a shaft or in a housing/bore when installed in a groove. I see some of these rings being used in automotive shops for the automobile spare parts and assemblies.

There are different types of retaining rings depending on the specific assembly or components where they are used. There are axially assembled retaining rings, inverted retaining rings, beveled retaining rings, radially assembled, self-locking, constant section and spiral retaining rings.
