What are prescription custom orthotics?

Custom orthotics are specially-made devices designed to support and provide comfort and in some instances enhance performance when participating in physical activities. At Herts Wellness Centre our prescription orthotics are bespoke and we utilise high quality materials at all times.

How can an orthotic help me?

The information gathered during your biomechanical assessment and your presenting chief complaints, activities, foot profile and overall well-being will help our podiatrist to determine if orthotics/insoles might be helpful. If orthotics are needed, your podiatrist will capture a three-dimensional image of each foot as per the above image. Those images, as well as any measurements obtained by your podiatrist, are used to create a set of bespoke orthotics/insoles that may improve your foot movement and lead to more comfort and mobility.
