Orthotics and Technology

Custom Made Orthotics for Children and Adults

  • We employ the latest in pressure plate foot scans and gait analysis technology, enabling us to obtain a precise image of the foot from which a computer generated cast then orthotic is made for each individual
  • The orthotics prescribed and designed by Podiatrists at Beyond Podiatry in Newcastle are made to align the foot in its correct foot posture
  • The orthotics will help to reduce pain in the feet and joints like the knees and hips
  • In time, your foot will conform to the shape of the orthotic
  • The muscles and ligaments are realigned, thus eliminating stress, repetitive trauma and related discomfort
  • Most of our orthotics flex as you walk, thus exercising the muscles in the feet and absorbing shock from hard walking surfaces
  • The orthotics can be adjusted by our podiatrists as your foot and posture change and improve due to your new foot alignment. Often one of our podiatrists will apply taping and padding to the foot on the first visit. This will help to decrease the pain before being issued with the orthotics
