We use the latest in computerised orthotic technology to produce the most advanced orthotic devices currently available. Podiatry First Bondi Junction utilises the latest advances in modern technology to construct 3D scanned orthotics which are flexible yet supportive and durable.
- The computer aided designed orthotics allow precise alignment, by using digital angulation and precise manufacturing.
- They will not flatten more quickly than hard orthotics.
- They are not as bulky and heavy as they used to be with the old rigid type of orthotics
- They can now be made very slim-line and fit into normal shoes – even some dressy shoes.
- The new computerised materials are flexible, yet supportive.
- They are more flexible than the older rigid orthotics, making them more comfortable for you to wear. This flexibility allows them to ‘bend’ with your foot when walking and running to preserve the foot’ s natural cushioning mechanisms whilst also correcting any abnormal biomechanics.
We offer a range of solutions that can cater for all budgets and footwear. Orthotic devices dispensed by Podiatry First are rebatable through private insurance, are accepted by Workers Compensation and Department of Veteran Affairs.
