Custom foot orthotics are innersoles designed to either change your foot movement or to help reduce plantar pressure on your feet. They actually do both, but depending on the problem and primary design function they will usually emphasise one more than the other. Custom orthotics can be made from a multitude of materials depending on what the primary function is, getting the correct design and choosing the right materials is extremely important and takes an extensive knowledge of Biomechanics, Gait and foot function.
After having a biomechanical assessment and gait analysis carried out the information is used by the Podiatrist to custom design orthotics specifically for your needs. Mark, at Prostep Podiatry, has over 20 years of experience and designs all custom made orthotics on site using sophisticated CAD software.
