Our  Podiatrists  based in melbourne,  have introduced the latest technology in 3D laser foot scanning .  Combined with their expert training in the latest techniques in lower limb biomechanics,movement  and orthotic manufacture,  a more accurate and  suitable custom orthotic can be manufactured .They have many years of experience supplying orthotics from toddlers to professional V.F.L. footballers, state squash players,pro tennis players , and the aged, etc. At the initial appointment, a full history and assesment is done to identify the cause of the problem , and a treatment plan is then developed. A detailed biomechanical assesment  and gait analysis will follow, which  provides further key information which will help to direct the type of orthotic required. A 3D laser scan  of the feet is  taken if a custom made device is required. In some cases , a semi custom device only is warranted, here a template is chosen from a large range of materials and adjusted accordingly. For either type of device, appropriate shock absorbing  paddings are often layered over the top of the device with a top covers . Orthotic manufacture is an intensive activity and thus takes time,often involving over 20 steps.On many ocassions shoe prescription will follow,as well as appropriate exercises and advice.
