To fabricate custom foot orthoses we use a computerized contact digitizing machine to capture the 3 dimensional contour of your feet. The orthoses are then carved from a solid block of EVA (the same type of material used for running shoe soles) by a computer controlled milling machine.  We have the entire system onsite and can fabricate from start to finish in less than 24 hours. The coordinates required to fabricate the orthoses are stored indefinitely should you need additional pairs in future. The system is used to customise work, sport, casual footwear and sandals.

FootFacts
Your feet mirror your general health. Such conditions as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in the feet so foot ailments can be your first sign of more serious medical problems...
FootFact
Sprained ankles are one of the most common injuries in sports. Because the inner ankle is more stable than the outer ankle, the foot is likely to turn inward (ankle inversion) from a fall, tackle, or jump. This stretches or tears ligaments; the result is an ankle sprain. The lateral ligament on the outer ankle is most prone to injury..

Foot orthoses are designed to control damaging foot stresses which can either cause injury or prevent injuries from healing.

We see many patients who have been disappointed with the results of poorly designed foot orthoses. If you need foot orthoses we will often test the design using an inexpensive temporary prototype to evaluate the effect before proceeding with the final product. This significantly improves patient satisfaction with the end product..
