We stock and supply both off the shelf and custom orthotics.
Orthotics are devices placed in shoes that are used to modify foot function and are aimed to biomechanically treat, adjust and relieve various foot and lower limb disorders. They are crafted to meet the needs of the individual.
Off-the-shelf semi-rigid orthotics are ideal for many clients, are significantly cheaper and can still be customised by your therapist. We stock a number of different brands who have different profiles, rigidity and features. Price range is $70-140 and normally claimable via your Private Health Fund Extras cover.
Custom Orthotics are preferable for some clients. As well as a biomechanical assessment we take a foam impression of your foot which is then digitally scanned via a laboratory who then craft an orthotic based on your profile including other key measures taken by your physio. Price range is $250 and approximately 1-2 weeks for delivery. Custom orthotics are normally fully claimable through Private Health Fund Extra cover.
In some circumstances we may instead professionally recommend a Podiatrist Custom fitted orthotic with whom we can liaise and refer.
