First, we set up an initial appointment to assess our patient’s needs for Foot Care. If we determine Custom Orthotics are needed, we will perform a 3D Volumetric Laser Scan of the Feet which only takes a few minutes or we create a Plaster of Paris Cast. The Laser Scan is sent Electronically, and the Plaster Cast is sent Physically to the lab to create the Custom Orthotics.
The Plaster Cast was one of the original methods for taking Measurements of the Feet; it is one of the gold standards of taking Impressions of the Feet. With updated technology, Lasers are available to scan the Feet directly on the spot for Custom Orthotics. Plaster Casts get Physically sent to a Technician, and the Technicians use a Laser to take an Interior Scan of the cast.
How Long Does the Creation of Custom Orthotics Take?
Custom Orthotics are 100% Custom Made from State of the Art Thermoplastics. Once the lab receives the Scan or Cast, they create a Model to Pour the Molten Plastic onto to form the Customized Orthotics for the patient.
Seven to ten business days is normally the time frame to manufacture your Custom Orthotics, however Rush jobs are available if needed.
If for any reason, a patient’s Custom Orthotics are not sitting comfortably, Follow Up appointments are available for Adjustments at no charge for up to 3 months.
