Many people are required to wear custom foot orthotics to manage or resolve their foot pain. One major limitation in treating feet and lower limb conditions, especially in the city environment is working with and sourcing footwear that is comfortable but still suitable for formal office wear. Typically, these shoes are quite minimalist with limited room inside these shoes, making fitting orthotics difficult or even impossible. Thankfully two new innovations in orthotics are now available exclusively through my FootDr podiatry centres.
The Stealth Orthotic
This ultra-slim orthotic design is made out of a thin and flexible plastic material sandwiched between cushioned Ortholuna base, with a Orthoplush top surface that is odour resistant. The Stealth orthotic is semi-custom made and has contoured arch support and a soft metatarsal dome. They are very effective in alleviating symptoms of the heel, arch and forefoot pain such as neuroma’s and bursitis. They fit famously into many formal and casual footwear styles including high heels, wedges and ballet flats.
The stealth orthotic is often used in conjunction with a full length custom orthotic to give the patient an alternative option when at work. Coupled with a comprehensive treatment program it offers patients the best chance of curing their foot pain once and for all.
The Cobra Device
Made with the same orthopaedic material and manufacturing process as our well known Orthema CAD/CAM orthotic manufacturing system, the Cobra device is a full custom made alternative.
What do we mean by fully custom made? Well, exactly what it means! The orthotic will be made to measure, for you based on the exact contours of your foot. With the luxury of having access to CAD/CAM orthotic design technology on site we are able to contour the orthotic to match your foot perfectly, as well as make modifications to give you the maximum amount of support possible whilst maintaining a slim design.
If you think these are a great alternative for you, or you are suffering from any form of foot or lower limb pain contact any of our my FootDr podiatry clinics for a consultation with one of our podiatrists. Visit www.myfootdr.com.au to book your appointment today!
