Production of Prescription Custom Foot Orthoses
 
 
 
 
If your foot assessment report shows that your symptoms are related to abnormal structure and alignment of foot and knee bones, prescription foot orthotic treatment, that is our core treatment of many foot problems, may be suggested by our pedorthists.
 

Prescription custom foot orthoses consists of three main elements: :


1. Corrective

Abnormal biomechanics, which related to many foot problems, are caused by foot mal-alignment. Prescription custom foot orthoses can re-align the feet, in order to alleviate the foot problems that originated from abnormal biomechanics.


2. With Prescription

In order to treat the foot problems that related to abnormal biomechanics, materials, correction anglesand other accessories of prescription custom foot orthoses, are prescribed by Pedorthists, according to patients’ mal-alignment level, symptoms and daily activities.


3. Custom made

Prescription custom foot orthoses are custom-made. Its shape is made from scanned images of feet or foot casts. This is unique and cannot be worn by others.

 

 

Procedures of making prescription custom foot orthoses:

  1. Professional Foot Assessment
    Please refer to Professional Foot Assessment.
  2. Foot modeling
    The important element of foot orthotic effectiveness is the accuracy of the capture of foot shape.

    In order to achieve foot correction, the foot shape should be taken when the patient’s foot is at its non-weight bearing neutral condition, otherwise the collapsed condition would have been captured on weight bearing and the forefoot-rearfoot relationship would be missing in foot orthotic fabrication.

    In order to obtain accurate foot modeling, laser scanners or plaster casts are used at our pedorthic centres to capture patients’ foot shape at its correct position. Sometimes, foam boxes are used when the foot is very rigid.

  3. Prescription
    Prescription is based on the cause of biomechanical problems, the diagnosis, symptoms, foot condition, daily activities, body weight, and footwear type. The accuracy of prescription and the experience of Pedorthists contribute to the effectiveness of foot orthotic treatment.

  4. Fabrication
    To achieve accuracy and reproducibility, we are using our foot orthotic CAD/CAM system to make the prescription foot orthoses with fine-tune adjustments, independent of human errors of working the positive foot moulds.

  6. Follow-up

    Follow-ups are necessary a few weeks after the fitting session to check if there are any adjustments required. Shoe fitting issues, length of break-in period and level of comfort vary among different individuals.

    In order to ensure proper condition of prescription foot orthoses, regular follow-ups are recommended every one to two years to see if there is any wear and tear.

    For children’s prescription foot orthoses should be followed up every 6-12 months depending on their growth rate.
