Custom Foot Orthotics
Custom foot orthotics are shoe inserts designed to support the natural shape of the foot, align the ankle, and improve posture and foot function in general. At My FootDr, our podiatrists may prescribe orthotics to manage a range of biomechanical foot, ankle, leg and lower back conditions.
The podiatrists at My FootDr use the latest technology to design and make the custom foot orthotics. Our podiatrists prescribe your orthotics using advanced computer-aided methods. This allows us to fine-tune and manufacture your custom foot orthotic prescription with computer-aided precision and repeatability.
This means that there is no need for a conventional messy and inaccurate plaster cast to make your orthotics. Instead, we record the exact contours of your foot whilst it is being held in its corrected standing position by your experienced My FootDr podiatrist.
How Do Custom Foot Orthotics Help?
Custom foot orthotics are prescribed to help alleviate and prevent foot, ankle, and knee pain, and improve your balance and foot function in general.

How We Make Your Custom Foot Orthotics
Our podiatrists will undertake a comprehensive musculoskeletal assessment including a video gait (static, walking, running) assessment. Additionally, they will take a 3D scan of your foot that creates an exact likeness of your foot in its corrected position. The computer measures the 3D scan to an accuracy of 0.1 mm. If any software adjustments are necessary, such as adding a heel raise for a short leg, your highly-skilled podiatrist will display this on a high definition computer monitor so you can see your orthotic prescription before they are manufactured. The scans are then sent to our laboratory where your orthotics will be made.
