Orthema Cad/Cam orthoticsHere at The Podiatrist we use the latest orthotic technology from germany known as the Orthema.
The Orthema is a three step system where by your foot is scanned, a computer model is created and a full length flexible device is milled.
The benefits of this system include:
√ The foot is scanned weight bearing in its optimum position, as apposed to a plaster cast with your foot off the ground, this produces a much more accurate representation of the foot allowing more correction whislt maintaining comfort.
√ The 3D computer modeling of the orthotics allows us to see the corrections we are making before their construction allowing much finer prescription levels
√ Being full length orthotics we can extend the control of the orthotic prescription to the toes which is very useful for sports orthotics. Also there are now many sandles on the market, with full length removable liners, which are suitable for use with orthotics.
√ This technology allows us to manufacture the devices on site with 1/10mm accuracy. We can also offer a very quick turnaround for dispensing the devices. the orthoses can be fitted the same day when requested upon booking the appointment.
Cycling assessment + Solestars orthoticsThe SOLESTAR cycling orthotic is made from a high quality carbon fibre material which results in an extremely light and strong insole. Its special operating principle stabilizes the foot, preventing the shear forces which typically occur when pedaling, and corrects the movement mechanism.
Running AssessmentRemaining injury-free as a runner is a task only a very small proportion of people are able to achieve. Those with an efficient running technique and with an intelligent approach to training give themselves the best chance of staying uninjured.
Children's Foot & Leg ProblemsChildren's feet differ from those of adults, as they are soft and pliable making them prone to damage from abnormal pressure, such as shoes that are too small.
