Custom Foot Orthotics Guide

Gives your clinic a competitive edge
Sub-Metatarsal Accommodation :
To accommodate plantar warts , corns , severe callouses and dropped metatarsals .
Neuroma Pad : 1-2 , 2-3 , 3-4 , 4-5 :
Specifically used to alleviate symptoms of interdigital neuroma , intermetatarsal bursitis .
Heel Raise :
A unilateral lift is used for patients who have an anatomical limb length discrepancy . A small heel lift can also be used bilaterally to treat patients with limited ankle dorsi flexion ( ie Equinis ) or Achilles tendonosis .
Rearfoot Extrinsic Posts :
Used for moderate to severe over pronators , unstable feet , and people who weigh more than 240 lbs .
Hard Medial / Lateral Flange :
For severely pronated , pes planus , everted foot types or genu valgum ; stabilizes the subtalar and midtarsal joints .
* Practices who use Gaitscan to evaluate their patients and prescribe custom foot orthotics generate more revenue than practices using standard foam boxes or casting techniques .
1st Metatarsal Cut-Out :
Most commonly used with functional hallux limitus and supinators . A 1 st metatarsal cut-out drops the first metatarsal down ( into plantarflexion ) and forces the forefoot into pronation , achieving a better toe-off and heel strike .
Deep Heel Cup :
Offers greater stability for severe over pronators . Assists in gathering fatty tissue under the calcaneus .
Medial Rearfoot Skive :
To intrinsically correct for excessive over pronation .
