What are Custom or Bespoke Orthotics?
Orthotics are specialist shoe inserts which help to re-align the foot posture and reduce abnormal tissue stress on the feet and lower limbs.
Before Custom/Bespoke Orthotics can be manufactured a thorough foot and posture and gait analysis must to completed and a cast of your feet must be taken. This is an extremely skilled process requiring years of experience and expertise.
Casting of the feet involves the Podiatrist holding the foot in a specific ‘neutral position’ relative to the lower-limb whist taking the impressions of your feet.
The casts are then 3D digitally analysed to help reduce tissue stress, re-distribute plantar foot pressures and correct any functional abnormalities found during the biomechanical examination.
Custom/ Bespoke orthotics are returned to clinic and fitted within 2-5 weeks. You will be reviewed again between 2-6 weeks after use.
