Orthotics

sports orthoticA functional foot orthoses is a device that is placed in the shoe to alleviate mechanically related pathological conditions of the lower limb. They are custom made in a laboratory from a prescription and cast taken by the podiatrist following a full biomechanical assessment.

There are different types of orthotics to suit your age, level of activity or particular sport, all of our custom made orthotics are made by Langer (UK) Ltd.

Once a device is made you can have a customised sandal made by Langer incorporating your orthotic prescription, this means that when on holiday or when you are not wearing your orthotics your feet are still being treated.

We also supply off the shelf orthotics, these are generally used when the patient only requires a device for sporting or leisure activities.
