From plaster cast to finished product
Your orthotics (or orthoses) are custom-made on-site and designed with the purpose to treat your specific foot and lower limb condition. The choice of materials and how those materials are combined play an important role. As important is the proper preparation and modification of the plaster cast (or digital image) to produce orthotics that can be worn comfortably. The objective, is to provide relief from pain, and to stabilize and support the feet. The type of orthotics made will depend on the condition treated.
