The purpose of a custom orthotic is to align your foot and ankle in the most anatomically efficient position. Although they resemble insoles, they are biomechanical medical devices that are custom-made to correct your particular foot imbalance. Custom orthotics reduce stress and strain on your body by aligning your feet properly, much like glasses do with your eyes. Through redirecting and reducing certain motions that occur during the gait cycle, the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot. With custom orthotics, your shoes fit as comfortably as an insole, and they have the advantage of being custom made based on the exact impressions of your feet.
The custom-made foot orthotic is fabricated from raw materials based on a three-dimensional model of the patient’s foot. These orthotics are constructed to meet the individual needs of each patient.
