Custom orthotics are made for your foot, with your activities and footwear in mind during the prescription process. Orthotics can be made from a variety of materials (firm or soft). We achieve best results by providing a slim, low profile, soft and comfortable orthotic insole, meaning you will wear them and get results faster.
Thick, bulky and hard orthotics are rarely prescribed because they are difficult to fit in shoes and the majority of patients won’t wear them.
Prefabricated orthotics and semi-custom devices are also available.
Your podiatrist will discuss which style and material is best for you.
You may be able to claim some or all of the cost of your orthotics through your private health fund extras coverage. Call and ask your health fund what your coverage limits are on customized orthotics and / or prefabricated devices.
