Yes these are available for $150.00 plus $70.00 for the initial consultation. These are suitable for kids with growing feet and some adults who have a standard foot, which requires simple arch support.
We only make soft custom made foot orthotics. This is because they are more comfortable to wear. The foot is a mobile structure with multiple joints and is designed for shock absorption. A rigid device does not allow this.
We use dense foam rather than a hard plastic. The foam comes in different densities so they can be slightly softer or harder depending on the patient and their requirements. We never use a hard plastic.
A pair of custom-made orthotics are $590.00. This is inclusive of reviews and adjustments for up-to 3 months after the fitting date. There is also an initial consult fee of $70.00 where scans will be taken for fabricating.
Please book in for an initial consultation with one of our Orthotists. This is $70.00 and at this appointment we can diagnose your condition and discuss whether orthotics are appropriate. We would also take a scan of your foot at this stage.
A consultation is $70.00. A shorter review consultation is $55.00. Both of these are payable on the day.
