Custom Orthotics in Guelph
Foot Orthotics Design Process
Our orthotics start with a comprehensive biomechanical foot and lower extremity assessment. We look for signs and symptoms of foot pathomechanics that can lead to foot and leg pain and diminished lower extremity function. Callous and corn formations can indicate poor pressure distribution, where toe positions and bunions may indicate alignment problems leading to hyperpronation and pain. Measurement of specific forefoot and rearfoot angles and arch function can be an accurate predictor of gait issues which are then analyzed on their own using our gait walkway or treadmill.
Image capture of the foot shape and specific angles is done using our state of the art 3D Laser Foot Scanner.
The captured foot images are then used to design the appropriate style and configuration for your custom made foot orthotics.
After the orthotics are computer designed they are milled out to exacting standards using CNC milling machines.
Your orthotics are then ready to be fit to your foot and various footwear.
