Custom made orthotics are basically a brace that fits into a shoe. It is designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are bio-mechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance.
Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes - they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle.
Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole - and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
If you suffer from any of these symptoms - custom orthotics can help.
Localized foot pain
Bunions, hammer toes
Hip or back pain - even neck pain
Illiotibial Band Syndrome
Using technology developed for the Aerospace industry, the IQube obtains a high level of detail using laser and multi camera configuration to produce a full colour 3D image that is accurate to within a hair’s breadth.
The high level of accuracy means that your custom orthotic will be of the highest quality.
Do I need a special shoe for my custom orthotics?
For the most part any shoe that has a removable insole will work with your custom orthotic. Just remove the insole that came with the shoe and replace it with the custom orthotic.
