Your patients each have biomechanical challenges that benefit from additions and modifications. We allow you, at no extra charge, to customize each orthotic to your patient’s specific condition, weight, and activity type by creating the additions and modifications you prescribe.
3/8″ is our standard, 1/4″ is shallow and 5/8″ is deep and 3/4″ is very deep. A deep heel cup provides increased motion control, enhanced proprioception and better plantar cushion. We recommend this modification for plantar fasciitis (suggest also adding varus rearfoot posting). We recommend deep heel cups for posterior tibial tendon dysfunction in combination with a medial flange.
All of our sport orthotics are multipurpose devices used for a wide range of sports and general activities and are biomechanically designed for subtalar control. These devices are recommended for active patients in need of firm control for plantar fasciitis and severe pronation. Sport orthotics serve as the most basic and common orthotics prescribed today. Our standard length is met length on all of our sport devices.
