Custom Orthotic Therapy
To provide a custom orthotic brace for a patient, a series of examinations are performed to create an optimal support. The whole process takes about 30 minutes.
This includes a manual examination of the foot relating to the 3 arches of the feet, wear patterns and noted abnormalities.
A custom mold is also created in subtalar neutral (foam cast) for the patient.
A comprehensive gaitscan® examination is also performed using a computerized force plate to observe a patient’s gait from below.
Occasionally, a video may be created to assist with the assessment.
