Custom Orthotics Through Advanced 3D Scanning

Welcome to the future of personalised podiatric care. We understand that every foot is unique, and when it comes to orthotics, one size does not fit all. That’s why we’re proud to offer our patients custom-made orthotics, designed and crafted using state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology.

PLEASE NOTE: Podiatrists are specifically trained at University level and undergo 3-4 years of intense biomechanical training to be able to write prescriptions to treat specific lower limb pain and problems with custom orthotics. Podiatrists write prescriptions specific to the exact degree of correction you require, where exactly on your foot you require the correction, and what material your orthotic is going to be made from. This ensures the orthotics are specific for your needs. As a result custom prescription orthotics are claimable through your private health fund as Podiatrists are recognised as specialists in this area.

 What are Custom Orthotics?

Custom orthotics are specially-made devices designed to support and comfort your feet. They are crafted to match the contours of your feet precisely and are tailored for the way you move. Orthotics can alleviate pain, improve alignment, and help prevent future foot-related complications.

 Why 3D Scanning?

3D scanning represents the pinnacle of customisation. Unlike traditional methods, which often involve manual casting and guesswork, 3D scanning provides:

Precision: Our 3D scanners capture the exact shape of your foot, ensuring your orthotics are molded to a perfect replica of your feet.

Consistency: With digital accuracy, each pair of orthotics is consistent, whether you’re on your first pair or want a second set.

Speed: The scanning process is quick and straightforward, allowing for a faster turnaround from scan to delivery.

Comfort: A non-invasive process means no messy plaster casts and a comfortable patient experience.

Our Process

  1. Assessment: Our experienced podiatrists will conduct a thorough Biomechanical assessment of your feet, gait, and posture, as well as your lifestyle and footwear, to determine if custom orthotics are suitable for you.
  1. 3D Scanning: Using our advanced 3D scanning equipment, we capture the unique contours of your feet. This process is swift and entirely comfortable.
  1. Design: Our podiatrists will write a custom prescription based on the results of your biomechanical assessment and design orthotics that meet your specific needs.
  1. Fabrication: Your custom design is sent to a specialised lab where your orthotics are created with precision and accuracy.
  1. Fitting: Once your orthotics are ready, you’ll return for a fitting. We ensure they work harmoniously with your shoes and provide the intended relief and support.
  1. Follow-Up: Your journey doesn’t end with fitting. We schedule follow-up appointments to make any necessary adjustments and ensure your comfort and satisfaction.

 The Benefits

Custom orthotics can offer relief for various conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, heel pain, and flat feet. By improving foot function, they can also contribute to better alignment and alleviate stress on the knees, hips, and lower back.
