Custom Foot Orthotics

Ability Prosthetics & Orthotics is one of only a few practices in Australia that has invested in state-of-the-art computerised technology to manufacture foot orthotics.

The Amfit Contact Digitizer is used to create a digital file of the contour of the foot. It is unique because it uses hundreds of pins that gently push into the plantar surface of the foot, compressing the soft tissue and providing ‘offloading’ to bony areas to create a precise digital footprint. In addition, Amfit foot orthotics are made from materials that have been specially formulated to prevent an insole from compressing and thinning out, resulting in more effective support and more durable, longer-lasting foot orthotics.

Methods like POP  and foam impression blocks are also used to custom manufacture foot orthotics. In certain circumstances, these more traditional methods are still the better option.
