Back on Track Socks
The Back on Track Socks is a greatly appreciated product by our customers. Many people have problems with their feet, either caused by inflammation or poor circulation which leads to freezing. The socks work particularly well in combination with the Back on Track Insoles.
Remember that the ceramic textile reflects more warmth when we produce heat ourselves, for instance through movement. Once you are comfortable with the sock product, you may enjoy the socks’ effect whist sleeping.
If your heel is part of your particular problem, then the sock is the best choice because it covers the whole foot area. If you have sprained your ankle then the ankle brace may be a better choice as it provides a certain degree of support.

About Back on Track:
The company Back on Track manufactures joint and muscle protection, which are manufactured from a “ceramic textile” which is sold under the registered brand name Back on Track.
The textile is made up of fibres of polyester and polypropylene (some of the products are mixed with cotton fibres) with a ceramic powder fused into the fibres. The ceramic gives the fabric its unique property, which reflects body heat in the form of infrared heat radiation.
How does Back on Track work?
It is well established and documented that long wave infrared heat radiation increases the blood circulation. The increased blood circulation in the tissues helps to relieve muscles tension and improves performance. One important property is the injury prevention effect, which you get when the protections are used for training and competition.
Heat energy can be transported in three ways: conduction (transfer), convection or radiation.
- When heat transfer or conduction occurs, the heat in a material spreads from one part of the material to another.
- Convection is the loss of heat when a heated liquid or gas (e.g. air) is displaced, carrying the heat with it. The insulating material in ordinary clothing and joint supports, for example cotton, wool and neoprene, is designed to prevent convection and thus retains body heat in the air outside the skin.
- Radiation occurs when a heat source emits heat radiation, where upon it collides with another surface and heats it. Back on Track’s products work with radiant heat, the purpose of which is to avoid trapping the heat through insulation. This is so that the protection has a respiratory function, while heat energy in the body tissues increases.
