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.
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.
Our podiatrists are foot specialists adhering to strict medical standards and ethics. Their expertise with orthotic insoles means they can make insoles fit into your lifestyle and keep your feet in good health without asking you to always wear bulky or unfashionable orthopaedic shoes.
