Custom Orthotics London
Our custom orthotics can be tailored to any specification for any condition or type of footwear. This allows us to optimise the levels of support, thickness, and length of your orthotics to fit any shape of foot or shoe.
Custom orthotics are highly recommended for people with flat feet, poor foot and ankle stability, specific foot and ankle conditions, knee pain, or hip pain. Our custom orthotics are uniquely designed and fabricated for each patient following our thorough biomechanical assessment.

Custom Orthotics Assessment
A clinic interview is conducted about your symptoms and why you feel you need orthotics. This is followed by a Physical Assessment of the flexibility, strength, and mobility of your feet, ankles, knees, hips and back. If you are attending due to an injury, we will explain the diagnosis to you after your Physical Examination.
Dynamic Foot Scan
We carry out our dynamic foot scan using a state-of-the-art foot pressure plate. Each client is asked to walk across this numerous times, allowing us to identify where pressure and force are distributed throughout your feet when you move. Following this, each client stands still on the pressure plate to identify whether their weight is distributed evenly on both feet. The dynamic foot scan will enable us to determine the level of support required in your custom orthotics.
3D Foot Scan
3D Foot Scanning has replaced casting of the foot as our laser scanner can identify the foot’s contours within seconds with greater precision than casting. A 3D foot scan is performed in a non-weight bearing position, and this helps our manufacturers place the support angles in the correct location, unique to each patient.
Slow-Motion Video Gait Analysis
Finally, we carry out a slow-motion video analysis of your walking and running that allows us to identify any other biomechanical traits such as overstriding, early heel lifts, or low cadence through gait.
If you would like to understand more about how we carry out our assessments to decipher if an orthotic is appropriate for you, then please have a look at our Biomechanical Assessment page.

What conditions do orthotics help with?
Click on the headings below for more in-depth information on how our insoles can help with different conditions.
Does insurance cover custom orthotics?
Most insurance companies in the UK do not cover custom orthotics. They may cover the price of an assessment but not for orthotics. Some international insurance companies cover the cost of an assessment and orthotics.
Do custom orthotics work?
A study by M. Gross et al. concluded that custom orthotics effectively reduce pain and improve function for people with Plantar fasciitis. Custom orthotics are effective for many other foot conditions such as Metatarsalgia, Morton’s Neuroma and bunions. However, each case needs to be assessed by a medical professional to determine how beneficial orthotics may be for the relevant symptoms.
How long do custom orthotics usually last?
Custom orthotics made at Flawless Physio must be replaced every 3-5 years, depending on their usage. If they are used for everyday activities such as walking, they can last up to 5 years, while impact activities such as running can wear them down quicker, leading them to last 2-3 years. Off-the-shelf orthotics typically last 3-6 months.
How Long does it take for Custom Orthotics to get made?
Our custom orthotics typically take two weeks to get made. On arrival, they can be posted to you, picked up at reception, or sometimes a short fitting is required. They have a 6-month warranty where unlimited modifications can be made if needed.
What do custom orthotics treat?
Custom Orthotics are highly effective at treating conditions such as Posterior Tibial Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis and Anterior Knee pain. Other common conditions that custom orthotics treat are Metatarsalgia, Morton’s neuroma, 5th metatarsal stress fractures and Achilles Tendonitis.Book Orthotics Assessment
