Custom Foot Orthotics Explained


A foot orthotic is a custom made insole that inserts into standard or orthopaedic footwear. Orthotics are designed to support or accommodate foot deformities or improper foot mechanics. Orthotics can help treat and alleviate pain caused by:

Plantar Fasciitis
Achilles tendinitis
Hallux Valgus/bunions
Patello-femoral syndrome
…and many more foot and knee related conditions.

Foot orthotics also play a role in addressing foot and leg complications related to:
Rheumatoid arthritis

At Kintec, we go through a thorough biomechanical assessment and functional exam to determine how your foot mechanics can be contributing to your current condition. We then discuss all our findings with you and together we build an appropriate treatment plan.

Our orthotics are designed and built using the latest technologies, such as 3D scanning, computer assisted design and 3D milling. In addition to using the latest technology, we at Kintec, adjust, modify and rebuild your orthotics by hand and on site in our micro lab.
