Different Types of Custom Orthotics

Custom-made orthotics are a great option for those who are looking for targeted support and comfort for their feet and lower limbs. Unlike generic insoles, custom-made orthotics are unique to each individual and are specifically designed to optimize the function of your feet. They are made using a 3D scan of your feet to provide an exact fit and level of support for your specific needs.

Types of Orthotics

There are several different types of custom-made orthotics available, each designed to address specific foot and lower limb conditions.

  1. Functional (Rigid) Orthotics: These orthotics are made from hard materials such as carbon fiber, making them long-lasting and durable. They provide additional support to the foot and are specifically designed to control the motion of foot joints below the ankle joint, improving foot and ankle mobility. They are ideal for managing foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, hallux limitus/rigidus, pes plano valgus, cavus foot, limb-length discrepancies, bunion deformities, neuromas, and more.
  2. Accommodative Orthotics: These orthotics are made from soft and well-cushioned materials, reducing the impact of standing and walking and redistributing weight across the foot. They are great for managing conditions such as diabetic wounds and deformed feet, and are also ideal for minor complaints or to correct functional issues.
  3. Semi-rigid Orthotics: These orthotics offer the best of both worlds as they are made from both soft and rigid materials. Their composite structure provides better balance, relieves pressure, and absorbs shock, making them ideal for foot issues such as flatfoot and in-toeing or out-toeing disorders.
  4. Sport Orthotics: Designed to meet specific sport related needs. They redistribute high-impact forces applied to the foot to enhance athletic performance and help reduce the risk of sport-related injury. We offer orthotics that are optimized for running, golf, court sports, field sports, aerobics, and more.


In conclusion, custom-made orthotics offer a wide range of benefits for individuals experiencing foot or lower limb pain and for those looking for added comfort or sports performance. With several different types available, each designed to address specific conditions and use cases, custom-made orthotics provide the most perfect fit and level of support for your needs.
