What are Foot Orthotics?
Foot orthotics are shoe inserts designed to support, align and improve the function of the foot. There are many different types of orthotics, those recommended by podiatrists are prescription devices, custom made to suit your individual needs and biomechanics.
Who wears Orthotics?
People of all ages with a variety of foot and lower leg problems wear orthotics. Sports people are often prescribed orthotics by their Podiatrists to help maximise their performance, as well as to address biomechanical problems.
Anyone suffering from a chronic foot or lower limb condition that is limiting their mobility or independence may benefit from wearing orthotics.
ProMed Orthotics – A Personalised Approach
Your Podiatrist at ProMed will design an individually tailored orthotic to address your pain, biomechanical issues, activities and footwear needs. At ProMed, we take a wholistic approach to your foot health. Orthotics are only one component in the complex care of biomechanical issues. Additionally, we will outline your diagnosis, the type of orthotic you have been prescribed, proposed footwear options, lifestyle changes that may be needed and additional treatment that may be required to address the pain and inflammation. Our goal is to help you get back on your feet – pain free!

Women’s Slimfit Orthotics
3/4 length orthotics which slide into your work and fashion shoes. They are constructed from a thin, flexible, lightweight plastic that maximises the support you receive whilst minimising the amount of bulk in your shoes.
One of the greatest problems people face when getting their orthotics is that they don’t actually fit in the shoes you want them to. It is particularly important when it comes to work shoes because you wear them in excess of 8 hours a day! Our orthotics are designed and manufactured to fit perfectly inside your work shoes.
We have many different types of orthotics used for different conditions and foot types. They have been used successfully to treat flat feet, high arches, hypermobility, Severs disease, in-toeing (pigeon toeing), out-toeing, juvenile arthritis, neurological conditions, metatarsal adductus, and many other conditions.
