Indications for custom footwear are for patients with severe foot malformation or unsuitability for fitting orthotic or orthopaedic footwear. We take a cast impression of the patient’s feet which becomes the last or form to fabricate suitable footwear for this patient’s feet and condition. Styling will vary according to the condition the patient presents as well as the serviceability of the footwear for the patient’s lifestyle.
OrthoMedix is equipped to help those patients requiring modification to footwear in the form of a lift or wedge. Lifts and wedges to footwear are only applied upon the recommendation of a health care professional, usually an orthopaedic specialist. If the required lift is minimal (1/4” or less), the lift can be inserted into appropriate footwear while a greater lift is more serviceable and comfortable if applied to the sole of an appropriate shoe.
