Orthotic Components provide the clinician with the option of making simple or complicated ‘base insoles’ with minimum effort. The differing densities and shapes of our components provide the necessary solution to a number of biomechanical problems.
All the components can be fixed in place with our adhesive tape or one of our lower strength adhesive solutions.
Component Types and Typical Use
Metatarsal Pads - Various solutions to provide protection for the metatarsal area, with placement customised to the patient.
Valgus Pads - Designed to be inserted into the shoe (except diabetic patients) or attached to insoles to support the arches of the foot. Used for patients with fallen arches and flat feet causing pain in the arch area.
Cobra Pads - Provides support, cushioning, with some designs providing medial support and correction.
Metatarsal Bars - uniquely designed to cushion and support the entire metatarsal area. Ideal for treating metatarsalgia. Can be adjusted with some basic tools.
Heel Raises - Die cut firm EVA heel pieces for raising the heel. Can be used alone positioned below and insole, or bonded and/or adjusted for true patient customisation.
Heel Cushions - Cut cushioning heel peices used for comfort and pressure offloading. Use individually or bond to orthotic insoles and semi-bespoke devices to provide spot cushioning for boney spurs.
Podotech Posting Components - The system uses various wedges and add-on components which help with stablisation treatment. This range of materials requires nothing more technical than a pair of scissors and some double sided tape. Various posting degrees are available, as are some posted insole parts.
