Custom foot orthotics info
The role of a pair of foot orthotics (check here for further reading on what actualy makes up a orthotic insole) is to rebalance points of excess pressure under the foot and, if necessary, realign the foot with the lower limb. Orthopedic specialists analyse the balance foot, analyzes pressure points and determines an optimal form based on these pressure points. When the assessment is done the foot undergoes manual pressure. This controlled pressure is absolutely necessary to correct the foot properly (structures settled under the weight of each individual). A digital mold is created for each foot.
The core technology of the design of custom-made Orthotics is unique, patented, and reengineering active offer of the shape of the foot. It allows the analysis of pressure points and determines, by artificial intelligence, an optimal design of the plantar surface based on these pressure points.
The assessment is done in semi-charge. A digital mold is created for each foot of the patient who is subjected to some deformation through a calibrated foam. Measures under deformation is absolutely necessary to properly correct the foot structures is sinking under the weight of each individual.
Each analysis is transmitted to the calculations of the company servers in order to create the optimum orthotic using design assisted by computer (CAD), software. The manufacturing process, using a computer (FAO) aided manufacturing software and numeric control (CNC) machine tools, allows the mass production of custom-made Orthotics while assuring reproducibility and precision.
Each analysis is then transmitted to a server in order to create the optimum orthotics design using computer-aided design software. The manufacturing process, using a software assisted by computer and digital-control machine tools, to produce a quality and unmatched precision orthotics.
Different types of orthotics
Following the evaluation of the needs and the clinical evaluation of each patient, the specialist will usually offer solutions tailor-made, depending on the foots condition. Orthotist will recommend certain material or combination of materials in different densities, taking care to transmit all relevant information concerning the features and functions of the different choice of Orthotics.
