Customised Foot Orthotics – Medical Grade Shoe Insoles


Custom foot orthoses are medical-grade, orthotic insoles designed by podiatrists, taking into consideration many factors before issuing. They are not one-size-fits-all, and should be worn as part of an individualised rehabilitation or treatment plan. There must be a clear reason as to why you are wearing orthotics.

 

Orthotics are contoured inserts which treat a variety of structural problems of the human body by adjusting the lower extremities’ natural alignment during stance and motion. You can utilise insoles for plantar fasciitis, flat feet arch support, certain foot pains, and more. They were first created more than 150 years ago as medical devices by chiropodists (early podiatrists) and medical doctors.

Why you should see a podiatrist for orthotics:

  • They are specialists of the foot
  • Podiatrists understand your medical conditions and how they impact your feet
  • A full biomechanical assessment is undertaken to address all causes of lower limb abnormality
  • Orthotics should be customised to suit your lifestyle and footwear and the Podiatrists have the experience to accommodate this need
  • Podiatrists prevent future foot, ankle and knee problems (and further up the kinetic chain)
  • Orthotics are medical products and should be designed by those with medical training

What is the difference with those sold by unqualified non-healthcare professionals?

Custom-made orthotic insoles are strictly medical devices in most developed countries; they require professional prescription and design, targeting the patient’s specific biomechanics.  Healthcare professionals such as podiatrists spend many years in school learning about the human anatomy and biomechanics.  Podiatrists also have years of experience in hospitals or clinics treating patients.

 

A pair of inappropriately-designed insoles can cause a patient even greater pain and disability.  Patients who bought non-medical “custom insoles” in mall shops often end up at a podiatrist’s clinic complaining of unhelpful shoe inserts, which they use only some of the time.
