Orthoses

Orthoses are medical appliances which look like insoles but are custom made to correct your individual foot and leg alignment. This restores the optimal function of the foot and prevents further injury. Orthoses work by applying gentle consistent pressure to bring muscles and bones back into proper alignment. They fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole bringing relief from fatigue and pain, allowing you to enjoy daily activities and sports comfortably.

At the clinic we can provide two types of orthoses that are either already made (prefabricated) or custom made from a cast (bespoke).

  1. Prefabricated orthoses are ready made functional insoles that can be customised by heat moulding them to your foot and balanced to your individual prescription. We have a range of styles to suit footwear choice and activity level. Our selection of makes include Vasyli (AOL), Starflex and Interpod.
  2. Custom orthoses are individually made to your prescription. The measurements taken during a biomechanical assessment (see biomechanics page) are used along with an exact cast of your feet to produce the orthoses. This cast is sent to a lab and scanned using a laser to produce a computer image. An exact replica of your foot is milled from a block of material and then the orthotic shell is moulded over it. This method ensures an extremely accurate final orthoses is made.

We can also assess, repair, adjust or replace existing orthoses.

Remember your feet are the foundation for your entire body

Obtaining and consistently wearing orthotics can be the best investment you can make in your overall well being.
