Custom Foot Orthotics Design, Build & Fitting in Cambridge
The process of fitting custom foot orthotics starts with a comprehensive foot exam and biomechanical foot and lower extremity assessment.
At Applied Biomechanics the foot specialist will look for signs and symptoms of foot pathomechanics that can lead to foot and leg pain and diminished lower extremity function.
Callous and corn formations can indicate poor pressure distribution, where toe positions and bunions may indicate alignment problems leading to hyperpronation and pain.
Measurement of specific forefoot and rearfoot angles and arch function
can be an accurate predictor of gait issues which are then analyzed on their own using gain walkwyay or treadmill diagnostic equipment.
Image capture of the foot shape and specific angles is done using our state of the art 3D Laser Foot Scanner. The captured foot images are then used to design the custom style and unique, individual configuration for your foot orthotics. After the orthotics are computer designed, they are milled out to exacting standards using CNC milling machines. Your custom orthotics are then ready to be fit to your foot and various footwear.
