Our 5 step Orthotic process.
It is definitely NOT all about Orthotics and we will try to avoid them if possible. In many conditions there is no requirement for orthotic devices and we pride ourselves in our clinical decision making and being able to communicate when and if they are required.
Do you require orthotics and can we avoid them (if applicable)?
Potential testing with taping to see if an orthotic may potentially help.
Step 2. Consult: Continue Rehabilitation, Assessment of Interventions & Potential use of an orthotic
Continual treatment and advancement of exercises (if applicable).
Feedback on whether supporting feet with tape helped.
If deemed clinically useful then going ahead with the foot orthotics.
Foot scan or foam box impression + Biomechanical assessment to allow us to do prescription for your orthotics
Step 3. Consult: Orthotic Dispense
Continual treatment and advancement of exercises (if applicable)
Orthotic fitting into shoes
Step 4. Consult: Free orthotic follow up consultation
To make sure you are complying to orthotics and to check device quality.
Step 5. Back-up Support – Follow-up communication and reminders
We pride ourselves on our Rehabilitation Ecosystem. You will receive automated emails to prompt you to communicate with us along the course of your orthotic wear to troubleshoot any problems or concerns. You will also be given a direct mobile phone number to use as appropriate to break down communication barriers.
We only want you wearing our devices if you are 100% happy in them. We will make as many adjustments and changes as needed at NO COST TO YOU once you receive your orthotics.
