Step Wellness Orthotics

Custom Orthotics Solution

Alex Kopacz developed the Step Sciences Orthotic during his Gold Medal journey to PyeongChang in 2018.

Educated as an engineer with a degree in physics and trained to be a world class bobsledder, Alex set to work to gain every competitive edge possible. The solution was a custom proprioceptive orthotic that allowed him to run faster, exhibited in his Gold Medal time that was judged to the one-hundredth of a second.

Alex has taken these concepts to the industrial market, offering a Gold Medal solution to an every day problem.

How STEP SCIENCES TM works

Using Sensorimotor Technology, our team of experts examines your anatomy to develop a custom solution for your unique profile.

Senso Point 1

Secure the Ankle: Stimulates the Fibularis Longus and Fibularis Brevis to help activate the lateral side of the calf.

Senso Point 2

Protect the Knee: Stimulates the Flexor Longus and Tibialis Anterior to help activate the medial side of the calf as well as protect the knee.

Senso Point 3

Relieve the Foot: Stimulates the Flexor, Abductor and Quadratus muscles of the foot, which strengthens the arch as well as foot responsiveness on ground contact and alleviates Achilles pain.

Senso Point 4

Improve coordination: Sets the foot up to engage the big toe for maximum power transfer, as well as influence the biomechanical gait to make it is as close to perfect as possible.

"So I've always been interested in something that would better me in Golf, and I think I might've found it. I tried this new Orthotic, and you know, I thought they're all the same. But I tried a new orthotic that's specifically for sport. It's amazing, you know, the comfort that I felt with this Orthotic, and it gave my body a better sense of balance. As a Golf Pro, it's an added benefit to my game. There's a big difference. I feel more comfortable, my body positioning feels stronger, I have no pain. No pain in my feet, no pain in my back. I haven't felt any twinge of pain until I take these out of my shoes after a round of Golf and put my regular orthotics in my shoes." "I definitely endorse this product, I'm very happy with it. It's comfortable and easy to get my feet into my shoes. The durability, the quality is amazing. Alex, thanks for introducing me to this product. Hopefully, we can introduce these to other people."

“I was so excited when I found out about Alex’s new and exciting orthotic company. Someone that finally realized that orthotics need to be individual, sport specific and can’t all be the same for everyone with similar issues and conditions. I have been struggling with foot issues now for about five years. Metatarsalgia which continued to get worse and I was starting to experience a lot of pain that was moving to other areas in my foot. I have had orthotics for years but this pain was just being managed as it continued to get worse. I stared to feel I just had to accept the pain and hope for the best. I began to worry that I would get older and be in too much pain to continue to work out and play the sports I loved. When I heard about the philosophy behind this company I was so excited that maybe something could finally help me. It all made so much sense and I was so hopeful. Now that I have my new orthotics my pain has diminished so much to the point that I am wearing the orthotics all day even inside my house. This is life changing and I am so appreciative. Thank you so much Alex and Step Sciences!!!”

"Foot pain has been a part of my life for many years. With naturally wide, flat feet I have struggled with foot and knee discomfort. This was all magnified when I broke my foot 2 years ago. I found the world of orthotics when I was searching for anything 1 year post break to ease the extreme pain I was feeling from over compensation and altered walking. I was prescribed orthotics by my podiatrist and felt some improvement coupled with ultrasonic treatment, and yoga for balance, but I still didn’t feel myself. This changed when I put in my STEP orthotics. Immediately I noticed how my centre of balance was shifted. I have been wearing them for 4 months and I have seen and felt a major improvement. I no longer feel like I need to wear shoes and orthotics all the time, I can walk around barefoot pain free. I have seen a physical difference as I have clear even visible arches in both my feet. My balance is improved, my posture is better, my knees are pain free. I can confidently enter any workout or workday feeling balanced and supported. STEP orthotics science have eliminated my pain and given me back a version of my feet I didn’t believe could exist. Thank you for my arches, I didn’t believe that an orthotic could CHANGE my quality of life until I tried STEP."

"Before I had orthotics, my ankles would bang together as I ran and walked because my feet slopped inward. My ankles hurt a lot and walking and running didn’t feel great to me. Since I have my orthotics, I have had no pain!"

"As a high school physical education teacher, coach, and athletic director, I am on my feet all day, every day. I have had orthotics before but none that restored my foot pain so quickly. The one thing that I like about them is that they are not bulky. They fit seamlessly into my shoe and still provides me with the support that I require. The whole process was uncomplicated. Alex came to our house and fitted all of my family. His level of care and his ability to answer our questions was truly appreciated. I highly recommend Step Sciences for custom orthotics for your whole family."

"As a police officer and former hockey player, I have always dealt with some level of discomfort and foot pain. As I have aged, the pain has remained however, it has increased over time. I was leery to believe that an orthotic could not only fix my foot pain, but also my lower back pain. It was noticeable from the moment I put the orthotic into my shoe. I wore it for a few hours each day until I felt comfortable wearing it all day. It is highly notable how rapidly the orthotics have released me of my back pain and eased my foot pain. At first, it did feel awkward, but that is how it is supposed to feel. I don’t feel that anymore and I am quite pleased about how quickly my pain has been dissipated throughout my whole body. I highly recommend Step Sciences Orthotics to anyone that is looking for a custom orthotic."

Alex Kopacz

Some of his early workplace experience started at Robarts Research, working in the musculoskeletal group and gain lots of exposure to additive manufacturing in the medical world. This academic and research path was shortened by jumping on an opportunity to try out for the Canadian Olympic Bobsleigh team, where he realized that his athletic potential was just starting to be realized. From 2013 to 2018 he found a way to give himself the best possible opportunity for success by building a team around him consisting of the best specialist in each of their respective fields. Two of those people were his beloved trainer and 2x Gold medalist Olaf Hampel, as well as Andreas Lorenz who is a CPO specialist. This lead to winning a legendary gold medal in two-man tieing with the Germans to the hundredth of a second.

Having reached the pinnacle of sports, he wanted to explore the entrepreneur space and see if a gold medal could be forged there. Through the specialist, Andreas Lorenz Alex saw an opportunity to bring his passion, success and wellbeing to the world.
