An external custom device to support, align, prevent, or correct deformities or to improve the function of movable parts of the body. When the biomechanical structure of the foot fails, orthoses can modify the foot to function in a more normal biomechanical structure.
Various types of orthoses are commonly prescribed for foot and ankle pathologies.
Prefabricated devices have the distinct benefit of lower cost compared with custom-fabricated foot orthotics. The disadvantage of prefabricated orthotic devices is that they are not tailored to the individual and fail to support as well as a custom orthotic.
Custom orthoses are molded and contoured to the individual for maximum biomechanical correction.
Trust our foot and ankle surgeons to mold a custom device made to accommodate your unique foot type.
