Custom Foot Orthotics
A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical 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 so the right muscles are working at the right time, minimizing fatigue and allowing them to be used more efficiently . The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motions that take 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.
Your custom orthotics are designed by combining a casting of your feet with a static and dynamic scan of them with the GaitScan™. The TOG GaitScan™ is an innovative diagnostic tool and digital casting device that allows practitioners to analyze member biomechanics and order custom orthotic products. With 4096 sensors and a scan rate of 300 frames per second, GaitScan™ is the industry leader in dynamic scanning capabilities.
What does this mean for you? A new, in-depth method of assessing your gait cycle with a dynamic scan gives your health care provider access to a wealth of information that cannot be obtained with the naked eye. Over a million points of data are recorded, tracking minor flaws in your biomechanics and shedding light on issues that if left untreated, could develop into painful conditions over time.
