|Step 1 Detailed foot check
The orthotist will use the appropriate computer foot check system for individual cases of different client:
Foot shape scanner – Get the foot shape when standing
Foot Dynamic Pressure Analysis – Record the distribution of the plantar pressure at the time of walking, it is helpful to analyze the stress and posture deviation of the foot and make the appropriate treatment.
Step 2 Explain and provide foot care advice
In addition to assessing the most suitable insoles design, orthotist also have the responsibility to teach footers how to choose the right footwear, and targeted care and so on.
A pair of well-designed orthotic insoles should be effective in improve the posture of walking, running and jumping, also reduce joint abnormalities due to foot shape deviations (e.g. flat feet). However, how perfect design the insoles have, the insoles can only be made “passive” control on the foot structure. For a comprehensive foot structure improvements, “active” control should be join which is foot muscle strength exercise. Therefore, our center in addition to orthotists recommend some foot exercise, there are registered physiotherapists for more in-depth guidance, the purpose is provide more effective foot care services for patients.
Step 3 Take foot-mould
Orthotist accordance with the function of the insole to choose different way to lift the mold.
Orthopedic for the purpose: medical thermoplastic foot casting: fast, clean and accurate
For the purpose of decompression: Use the foam materials, so that the foot can be “total contact” with the insoles, it is helpful to reduce the plantar heavy pressure area.
Step 4 Insole production
The technicians of insole production center based on requirements to create high-quality insoles.
Step 5 Insole fitting
Suggested that bring with the shoes which put in the insole, facilitate to make more effective functional assessment.
Step 6 Regular follow up
Regular follow-up is a very important part. Insoles will be loss, and the function of the insole is wearing a period of time to exert. Regular follow-up (recommended every 4-6 months) assess the functional and foot situation of the orthotic insoles regularly, ensure that every patient is effective in obtaining insoles to help.
