Welcome to the Flawless Physio Orthotics Service
What type of orthotics do we prescribe?
We use both EVA (this material is commonly found in the sole of your shoe) and Polypropylene Orthotics. Individually, they deliver different levels of support and cushioning. We offer these in a range of thickness and sizes from half to full length. As they are custom built by your clinician, they will be made for the specifications of your foot, your movement patterns and the type of footwear that you would like to put them in. We can make orthotics to fit your working shoe, dress shoe, trainers, ski boots and cycling shoes. We pride ourselves in being able to prescribe orthotics for any need.
How do we assess you?
We use our state of the art digital scanner to capture 3D imaging of your foot. This allows us to make a completely individualised orthotic. There is no longer a need for plaster casting or foam box casting, as a result. Digital scanning provides real time accuracy and decreases manufacturing time.
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.
Why choose a Physiotherapist for your assessment?
We have specialist training, not only the structure and movement of the foot but also of the rest of the body. Tightness and weakness in your back, hips and knees can influence the movement and force that goes through your feet. Therefore, in your biomechanical assessment we will look at your whole body movement patterns to gain a greater understanding of the causes of your injury. This will have a significant influence on the type of orthotics that we prescribe for you.
