Orthotics

With a special interest in Sports Orthotic Therapy, your myPod Podiatrist will help you overcome common complaints like Shin splints and Plantar Fasciitis. 

myPod Podiatry uses 3D Scanning and Milling systems for local manufacture of custom made foot Orthotics. We use a quick and easy scan to produce an exceptionally accurate 3 D scan of the foot. With no messy plaster our Podiatrists are in complete control of the manufacture of your Orthotic device from start to finish.

A simple analogy that helps to clarify the difference between a custom moulded orthotic and an off the shelf (generic) orthotic, would be the difference between a pair of off the shelf sunglasses and a prescription pair of sunglasses. While both the over the counter sunglasses and off the shelf orthotics may help to provide a simple function, the prescription sunglasses and prescription orthotics are specifically tailored to help your individual needs.

In order for a custom made orthotic to be made, a digital 3D scan of the individual's foot is obtained. This collected information can be shown and explained to you.  After any necessary adjustments are made to your prescription, the 3D Milling machine then shapes and cuts out your custom made orthotics. Each orthotic is made out of medical grade E.V.A. rubber with different choices of densities (soft/moderate/hard) according to the exact contours and structural characteristics of your feet.

The LaserCam system enables up to 60 different types of orthotic covers ranging from durable sporting covers, to soft luscious memory foams. The orthotics can also be made in a wide variety of colours and shapes to suite every need. Our orthotic turn around time can be as quick as 1 day, but will usually take 1 week for the full process to be complete.
