Who needs custom made orthotics

Docpods Support - Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Custom made orthotics are an orthotic made from a negative impression of your foot which can be a 3D scan, a plastic cast, or some other impression method such as foam boxing, to capture an exact copy of your foot. From this exact copy of your foot and a biomechanical analysis, an orthotic that corrects or supports your foot can be made to exactly correct your foot structure.

People who need custom made orthotic insoles are generally people who have large foot deformities or exercise for at high intensity or for long distances.

It’s very important to have your custom made orthotics made by a registered qualified podiatrist and one who is familiar with the activity which you are undertaking.
