Prescriptive orthotics are orthotics made to correct individual
foot problems. The physical Therapy and Health Center
works in cooperation with A.A. Orthopedics and Sport
(www.aa-orthopedics.co.il) for many years.
Their staff of well trained orthotists provide us with the
most technologically advanced orthotics in Israel.
They utilize CNC technology to create an orthotic
with a very exact correction.
What are the purpose of orthotics?
They are prescriptive inserts that correct our foot posture.
Correcting foot posture can help relieve foot, knee and back pain.
In Israel and throughout the world there are many ways to build an orthotic.
CNC technology is one of the more exact ways.
Most people who have had past experience with orthotics are fmiliar with orthotics made by "casting".
The "casting" method provides a model of the foot by which the orthotist then manually createsthe orthotic.
The more efficient and exact technique of creating an orthotic is via CNC
This technology is commonly seen in England and the U.S.A
This technology is based on scanning the foot imprint onto a computer.
The orthotist then creates the orthotic and the data is sent to a cutting machine.
The orthotic produced is extremely precise.
Refer to the following "YouTube" video to see how the
orthotic is actuallyprodvced.
Problems solved through orthotic inserts:
Growing pains (Osgood - Schlatters, Severs)
Post surgical procedures (Bunyons, hammer toes, etc)
