The following is a brief description of the manufacturing process:

Once the prescription and negative impression has been received from the Doctor or Foot Specialist, the negative cast is then scanned by a 3-dimensional scanner. The resulting image is then skived via our extensive modeling software, where the necessary changes and corrections are made. These changes/corrections include various additional modifications such as Metatarsal Pads, Metatarsal Bars, and also the ability to define precise degrees of posting.
When the modeling process is complete, the information is sent to a Precision CAD/CAM Carving Mill to produce the orthotic.
Shell materials include: Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (in various densities and dual densities), Poly Urethane (in various densities), Carbon Graphite, Cork/EVA combination, Poron, Plastazote, and Polypropylene.
When the milling process is complete, additional modifications (Heel Spur pads, Plantar Fascia Accommodations, Forefoot Plantar Lesions, etc.) are added and re-milled or grinded/buffed manually.
To finish, a top cover is glued to the orthotic and trimmed to fit.
The orthotic is then ready to be returned to the Doctor or Foot Specialist where it will be dispensed and fitted to the patient.
