What is a custom functional orthotic device?
Simply put, it is a custom made device from either a 3Dimensional digital or plaster mould of your foot, the shell and angled base of which are specific to your body weight, activity and structural misalignment. They can be rigid, semi-rigid, and semi-flexable; with decreasing rigidity, the devices become less functionally active. They may be made from thermoplastics, graphite, cork, leather and in the past even made from steel.

How does a functional orthotic actually work?
The goal of the functional orthotic is to work in conjunction with appropriate footwear, so that you can be supported in such a way as to enable the muscles controlling your foot structure to regain their mechanical advantage, enabling shock absorption, improved stability/balance, control load distribution and even have a significant influence on overall body posture and alignment.
