Problems arising from the improper installation of an orthotic.

What are Orthotics?

An orthotic is an insertable device that goes into your footwear. They are usually issued for your foot needs by a podiatrist or other healthcare professional. Coming in a variety of different shapes, sizes, thicknesses, and heights, it can often be very difficult to install them. If the orthotic device doesn’t fit inside well, it will be very uncomfortable and most likely the shoes will move excessively at the heel.

Common issues with Orthotics.

〉 When the orthotic moves inside the footwear, it will not work well.

〉 If your foot moves on the orthotic, the support hits the wrong place.

〉 When your footwear moves at the heel, there is a high risk of blisters. Your gait will be affected because you will unconsciously claw your toes, to try and hold the footwear on your foot.

How we can help.

With our many years of experience in fitting people with almost every orthotic shape imaginable, we have been able to identify specific traits in footwear that makes it much easier to fit an orthotic device in comfortably.

Working with some of the top podiatrists in the UK has also reinforced the fact that the foot, the orthotic, and the shoe must all work as one unit for you to get the most benefit out of the medical device.

Using our tagging system, you can easily filter products to show what will work well with orthotics. If you are unsure, you can always send us a photo of the orthotics and we can try to help narrow the choice down a little more, if the orthotics are especially chunky.
