Custom Made Orthotics are a highly accurate and durable device that can be used to treat a wide range of issues. These orthotics can be used to offer support to specific areas of the foot or to offload pressure. There is a large range of designs and materials that give us a multitude of options when designing these devices, allowing for an outcome most appropriate for your needs. When prescribing and manufacturing these orthotics a 3D scan of your feet is taken which is then sent to an orthotics laboratory. The orthotics are then made according to our prescription and typically take around 7 days to be completed.
Pre-fabricated orthotics are a heat moldable device that are extremely versatile. These orthotics can be used to offer support to the foot, or to offload specific pressure areas. Prescription of these orthotics involves a full biomechanical assessment. We then customise these devices with a range of additions and then heat mould them to your foot.
