Custom Foot Orthotics are removable devices worn inside shoes and made from from a 3-dimensional (3-D) image (or cast) of your foot. Custom foot orthotics can help to support, align, prevent, and/or accommodate foot abnormalities and improve how the foot functions.
A full biomechanical assessment and gait analysis are required to examine your feet and to design your custom foot orthotics. Then, both feet will be casted with plaster or scanned with 3D foot scanner to capture a 3D volumetric impression of your feet. This will ensure the orthotics will be a precise fit for the maximum support. Orthotics are available in various designs and finishes to accommodate individual need for footwear. Our chiropodist will lead you through every detail of your new pair of custom orthotics and answer any questions you may have.
* Please wear loose clothing for biomechanical assessment.
* Please bring your previous orthotics, the shoes you usually wear, and the shoes you want orthotics to be fitted in.
Wearing wrong shoes may lead to bunions, hammer toes, calluses and foot pain. Book an appointment with our chiropodist to find out what's the right shoes for your foot type.
