Terms & Conditions

Positive casts occasionally break with vacuum pressure during the moulding process. Please ensure that negative casts are deep enough to prevent this happening.

We will not be held responsible for damaged casts in transit and poorly taken negative casts.

If the negative cast is of poor quality we may need to request a new negative cast in order to produce a suitable positive cast.

We make every effort to manufacture each device as a mirror image of the other. However, patients do have feet of different shapes and sizes, and therefore some devices may vary in length and shape.

To ensure all additions are applied in the appropriate place, please indicate where you require orifices, wings etc on the device. Otherwise we will follow our standard procedure.

Heel Cup Height: Unless a set heel height is stated, our standard heel cup height will be applied as follows: standard heel cup height is 10mm and our high heel cup height is 18mm.

To allow for accuracy in the balancing and length of your device it is important that a heel bisection line and the 1 st and 5 th metatarsophalangeal joints are captured in a negative cast. Otherwise we can not be held responsible for devices being too short or too long.

The forefoot angle is the number of degrees the forefoot makes from a line perpendicular to the rearfoot bisection line.

The calcaneal bisection line is vital as a means of correctly angulating the orthoses during manufacturing. If this is not present we can only manufacture our devices from an estimated heel vertical position.

The anterior medial border of the shell is scooped to accommodate the head of a rigid plantarflexed 1 st metatarsal, which is known as a 1 st MTPjt cut out.

The distal medial border of the shell to the sustentaculum tali is cut away to allow the 1 st ray to plantarflex, which is known as a 1 st ray cut out.

Positive casts are modified as outlined in Philps (1990)

The two bisection lines of the 1 st and 5 th are joined by a straight line, which indicates the anterior border of the shell of the orthoses.

Total contact insoles (TCI)

A template is required with a TCI prescription in order to get a correct shoe fitting. Please indicate whether you require any indentations to be removed from the device.
