Custom orthotics are specialized inserts or devices that are custom-made to fit an individual’s feet. Our state-of-the-art specialized mat scans your foot to create custom orthotics by TOG. This map includes everything from your arch, pressure points, and toes to get the perfect fit.
These orthotics serve several important functions to enhance foot health and address various foot conditions:
Support and Alignment: Custom orthotics provide tailored support to the feet, helping to maintain proper alignment and positioning. They can assist in correcting foot biomechanics, such as overpronation (inward rolling of the foot) or underpronation (outward rolling of the foot), promoting more balanced and efficient movement.
Pressure Redistribution: By redistributing pressure across the feet, custom orthotics help alleviate excessive stress on specific areas. They can reduce pressure on painful or sensitive spots, such as the heel, arch, or ball of the foot, providing relief from conditions like plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, or heel spurs.
Shock Absorption: Custom orthotics are designed to absorb shock and impact forces during walking, running, or other weight-bearing activities. This can help reduce the strain on joints, ligaments, and tendons, offering cushioning and protection to prevent injuries and minimize discomfort.
Correction of Foot Abnormalities: Orthotics can address and correct various foot abnormalities or structural issues. For example, they can provide arch support for individuals with flat feet or promote proper alignment for those with high arches. Orthotics can also help in cases of bunions, where they can offload pressure from the affected area.
Improved Balance and Stability: Custom orthotics can enhance balance and stability, particularly for individuals with balance issues or conditions that affect their gait. By providing additional support and stability, orthotics help individuals maintain their equilibrium and reduce the risk of falls or other balance-related incidents.
Enhanced Athletic Performance: Custom orthotics are commonly used by athletes to improve performance and prevent injuries. They can optimize foot and lower limb alignment, enhance energy transfer, and provide necessary support during sports activities, allowing athletes to perform at their best while minimizing the risk of strains, sprains, or overuse injuries.
Custom orthotics play a crucial role in addressing common foot problems and promoting overall foot health. By leveraging advanced foot scanning technology, aka our TOG mat, these personalized inserts provide tailored support and alignment, offering relief and comfort for individuals with specific foot conditions.
