The Foot and Ankle Clinic offer a range of the highest quality, specially sourced pre-made orthotics. These are also known as generic or “off-the-shelf” orthotics. As they are more affordable these orthotics are typically used for initial trial purposes, or for people suffering from minor conditions.
They are generally not as durable or long lasting. This is due to not being moulded specifically to the foot. Sometimes they are not as well tolerated or as effective as the more custom options. However they can be a better alternative than using nothing at all.
These devices usually come in Small, Medium or Large sizes. They are often fitted at the same time as your consultation. Use of pre-made orthotics is reviewed as required, usually in 6-8 weeks.
