We offer Orthoses, 3D Design & Scanning services
So your podiatrist has advised that orthoses are the recommended treatment option, they will determine if you need an ‘off the shelf’ (prefabricated) or custom made orthoses. Which one you require depends on the problem you are having and what the podiatrist is hoping to achieve.
Custom Made Orthoses
What are they? They are a device that is placed into your shoe to help reduce stress on the tendons, ligaments and muscles, they help the foot and the rest of your body work effectively.
This type of orthoses is designed specifically for your feet, your problem and shoes. Yes shoes…. We have the technology to be able to provide the orthoses to fit a wide range of shoes, from joggers, to workboots to ladies court shoes. We also have the capability to use a variety of materials, so we can not only provide functional devices but they are also really comfortable.
We are very proud of the orthoses we design and the outcomes we can provide with our devices. We are one of very few clinics in NSW utilizing this state of the art equipment and orthoses design system.
In order to design the orthoses, we first need to take a 3D scan of your foot, this is then sent to a computer program and we design your orthoses around the 3D scan. The beauty of this process is that we design the orthoses, we do not tick boxes and let the laboratory design the insoles, we have ultimate control. This allows us to be very intricate with the designs and elements that we were previously unable to provide we can now place into our orthoses. The end result is better outcomes for our clients.
