Orthotic Devices

Standard Orthotic Range

Our standard orthotics are designed to with stand general wear and tear of daily activity, they can be three quarter length or full length with a choice of cover materials.

Heel Pain

These are designed for regular walkers who require moderate control and to cushion the foot at heel strike. They are ideal for customers with general heel pain, heel spurs, and plantar fasciitis.

Functional components: Medium density EVA shell with a poron heel cushion

Racquet Sports, running and Aerobics

Our performance range is designed to withstand the increased and prolonged repetitive forces, which are generated during sporting activities

During sprinting, aerobics and racquet sports foot strike is mainly on the forefoot with very little heel contact. Our racquet and aerobics devices are designed to addresses these changes in gait pattern by incorporating a forefoot varus or valgus extension to enhance mid-tarsal and Subtalar joint control. These are EVA devices that are extended up to the sulci in order to provide forefoot stability.

Total contact

Our total contact range is made up of three layers and is designed to provide stability, cushioning, total contact, and pressure redistribution. They are ideal for diabetic, neuropathic and rheumatoid patients.

Functional components: Low to medium density EVA shell, diabetic poron middle layer for added cushioning with a memory foam or plasterzote top cover.

Recommended Choice of materials:

Carbon fibre

Ideal for those who require an extremely strong lightweight shell that provides moderate – maximum control. This material is much more durable than polypropylene.


This is the material of choice for patients presenting with a cavoid foot or an increased varus angle (>5 ° ) of the lower limb. These devices provide maximum stability, flexibility and cushioning.



Ideal for daily activities where cushioning is not required. Will provide both stability and flexibility.

Type of orthotic devices available

We manufacture a variety of devices listed below are a range of the most popular devices.


This device is manufacture from polypropylene and has a deep heel cup with raised medial and lateral borders. An extrinsic heel post can also be added to give maximal control in paediatric patients with flexible flat feet, severe pronators and tibialis posterior dysfunction.

Gait Plate

This device consists of a polypropylene shell with the distal end angled to allow correct orientation of the foot during propulsion. A heel post can also be added to give further correction. This device is suitable for children who habitually out/in-toe during gait.

Met - dome

A polypropylene or EVA device with an intrinsically incorporated dome under the 2 nd –4 th metatarsophalangeal joint. Ideal for patients with metatarsalgia and Morton’s neuroma, plantar digital neuritis, and capsulitis.

Functional Hallux Limitus Wedge (Kinetic wedge)

During gait the first metatarsophalangeal joint requires 45º of dorsiflexion at heel lift. If the hallux is unable to dorsiflex sufficiently during propulsion the lower limb will attempt to compensate, which may then lead to hip or lower back pain in conjunction with pain around the 1st metatarsophalangeal joint. A functional hallux limitus wedge allows the hallux to dorsiflex thereby eliminating the need for compensation.

Medial heel skive

This device is produced by applying a medial skive to the heel of a positive cast. This technique has been reported to enhance the supinatory momentum of the orthotic across the subtalar joint axis. These devices are ideal for any patients who require additional amounts of pronation control, i.e, Paediatric flexible flat foot deformity and posterior tibialis dysfunction.

Contra-indications: lateral ankle instability. Patients with plantar heel pain as the change to the shape of the heel cup could exacerbate the condition.
