The purpose of this study was to design shoe insoles for people with neck pain. In this study, elastic polymers and elastomers matrials were used to design the insole body. In the specific part, a polymer ring with emollient materials was used. Fifteen male students with neck pain were volunteered to participate in the present study. The pain intensity was measured after 120 mile walking with and without designed foot orthoses. Visual analog scale (VAS) index was used for pain assessment. Shapiro-wilk test affirmed the normal distribution of the data. Paired sample t-test was used for statistical analysis using SPSS software version 26. A significant level of P≤0.05 was considered for all tests. The results of the present study showed that the designed insole reduced pain in people with neck pain (P=0.006). Overall, further studies were needed to better establish this issue.
