Foot Orthoses

Customized and prefabricated foot orthoses

This type of device is the most common type of orthosis that we manufacture at Island Orthotics Inc. Although there are any number of establishments that offer Foot Orthoses (F.O.'s) as part of their service there are just as many providers that offer an incomplete service. Our staff routinely performs a full assessment, commonly modifies / refurbishes orthoses as well as as shoe modifications.

The standard for provision and manufacture of a pair of custom made foot orthoses is outlined below.
  1. Gait assessment is routinely performed to each intake assessment in which one of our Certified Orthotists examines the static and dynamic alignment of the foot and ankle, ankle range of motion (R.O.M.), patient goals and concerns, callous formation, joint alignment, and footwear.
  2. If it is determined that a foot orthoses is an appropriate treatment option than the patient is hand casted in a non-weight bearing subtalar neutral position. Other methods are used depending on the clinical assessment.
  3. All F.O.’s are manufactured onsite by our in house technical staff. The orthoses are then custom fabricated from these casts. We use a variety of material combinations to achieve both patient comfort and biomechanical control. The fabrication time is approximately two weeks. The patient then returns for the fitting appointment. The foot orthoses are fitted into proper footwear and the patient is evaluated for fit and comfort including both static and dynamic alignment function.
  4. Any modifications required to the orthoses after the supply are covered by the initial cost for a period of 3 months. The plaster cast originals are given to the patient for possible future use.
