It is highly advised for people who develop problems due to prolonged standing and walking to use orthotics.

Here at Foot & Ankle Experts, we give patients 2 options for Orthotics.

Option 1: 3D scanned Orthotic, an accurate orthotic solution

  • Scan completion in about 120 seconds
  • Simple and non-invasive
  • Feet can be analyzed digitally
  • Ecological
  • Low orthotic weight

Once the required information for the foot adjustments are made. The 3D script is sent off to the lab.

 

Option 2: Heat molded Orthotic, a quick and flexible orthotic solution

  • Can be moulded several times (up to 50 times) to customise to your foot.
  • More financially affordable than traditional 3D orthotics
  • Comes with five different orthotic types to suit your needs (sports, control, slim, diabetic)
  • The whole process is done during patients appointment. There is no wait time.
1. Dynamic blue: suitable for high sport activity levels.
2. Max Black: suitable for strong support and control.
3. Slim Gray: suitable for lady’s dressing shoes with sufficient support and thickness.
4. Diabetic: suitable for diabetic, sensitive skin feet.

5. Leather Premium: suitable for dressing shoes with a premium look and texture.

 

Dr Kim will decide on the best insole type for the patient, then they will start the heat molding procedure. The molding procedure will be repeated until the patient has the perfect insole. The patient then goes back into the Doctor’s room, and will use the treadmill as the final test to check if the orthotic is perfectly shaped.
