People may required orthotics for a number of reasons. Orthotics a prescribed devices, designed to wear in your shoe to help correct biomechanical issues. These could be issues with the way one stands, walks or runs.

We can carry out a full assessment before deciding whether a bespoke orthotic is suitable for you.
Our Assessment Process
Our expert clinicians will take a medical and injury case history followed by a hands on clinical examination looking at strength, range of movements, areas of pain.
We then get you to complete the footscan assessment. This has 3 stages. A standing posture, balance and dynamic gait reading. Collecting this data allows us to identify area that are over or underworking, asymmetries and other issues.
Scan data analysis
Your clinician will talk through your footscan data and analysis and suggest the most suitable treatment pathway. This might include orthotics.
There are a few options available for different shoe types, football or rugby boots, formal shoes, running shoes, cycling shoes. With a number of finishes for the cushioned layer. Together with your clinician these options can be selected.
The orthotic is then designed, and can be double checked by a Gait and Motion Specialist.
3D Print Manufacturing
Once happy with the design, the prescription will be 3D printed to meet your exact specifications by using the footscan and prescription data.
Enjoying your next Steps
Finally, after a quality check, we will contact you to return to clinic to try and collect your orthotics. We will discuss how to gradually wear them in, giving your feet and body the perfect foundation to every step.
