Custom foot orthoses, commonly called orthotics, are specially designed shoe inserts to help support feet and improve overall posture.
How can Custom Foot Orthoses help?
PoshPod designs custom foot orthoses that help improve your performance, provide comfort, and reduce injury. Orthoses are custom designed to align and support:
PoshPod orthoses are used while walking, running, and playing sport. Whether you’re an athlete or a weekend warrior, our orthotics provide the needed support to prevent pain and future side-effects of poor foot alignment.
The PoshPod approach is based on keeping our patients moving and active where possible. We have invested heavily to focus on utilising the world’s best technology to ensure we can provide the best level of care to our patients.
PoshPod uses a digital weight bearing 3D casting system called Voxelcare. Using this system PoshPod makes your orthoses to your exact specifications.
Voxelcare is a quick, easy and mess free way to take an accurate imprint of your feet. We then adjust and add necessary components to suit your functional needs and goals. Depending on your specific needs, we create devices that could provide more stability while you walk or run, as well as flexible ones that allow increased shock absorption.
Once milled, your podiatrist will fit the orthoses to your shoes. Our aim is to have one device that can suit all your needs. We will make sure the orthoses are comfortable and will provide wearing-in advice. Your PoshPod podiatrist can also prescribe adjunct therapies like stretching and strengthening exercises to ensure that your feet remain strong and functional without the device.
