Orthotics & Insoles

What is it?


Orthotics (or orthoses) and insoles are customised orthopaedic devices that supports or corrects the function of your foot and lower limb. Orthotics and insoles are regularly used to provide pain relief by correcting any abnormality in your biomechanics, this in turn helps to reduce overuse and stress to your muscles and joints.


Orthotic devices are made only after a thorough and comprehensive biomechanical assessment including visual gait analysis, muscle and joint range-of-motion testing. At Elite Podiatry, we only use the most accurate and precise method of hand-casting and hand-manufacturing orthotics. The casts of each foot are expertly and individually made with plaster and sent off to the most prestigious orthotic laboratory in Perth. Due to this technique, we are able to ensure the cast taken of your foot and its prescription correctly represents our findings. Although this is more effort on our part, at Elite Podiatry we believe this is the most superior method in providing you an accurate device. We believe there is no comparison when compared to the “quick & easy” computer-generated orthotic systems.

At Elite Podiatry, we offer two types of devices, temporary and custom made. Depending on your requirements, we will customise a device suitable to your needs. We have a range of effective treatments available to help relieve and prevent this condition and improve your quality of life.
