In 2012 the clinic invested heavily in the purchase of a system which we deem to be the best in the current market for the design and manufacture of custom made foot orthotics.

The computerised system comprises a 3/d laser scanner to capture the foot’s geometry accurately, a computer aided design software package which enables us the ability to design virtually any shape or style of foot orthotic even for the most complex of foot deformities and a cnc milling machine which cuts the orthotic from either a block of rubberised foam or hard plastic.

This system gives us the ability to manufacture foot orthotics accurately, efficiently and aesthetically to provide our patients with an excellent device ever time.

Classically when clinics use external lab facilities they can expect to wait approximately 2 wks to receive the finished product, we can turn around same day if required. Our lab facilities allow us to modify the devices if necessary for fine tuning and also refurbish old devices. Our head podiatrist has been involved in the field of foot orthotic manufacture for 8yrs now on a commercial scale and has fabricated over 5000 pairs of foot orthotics!

“Central location with on street parking outside. Great service and flexible appointments. I have been to the practice for various injuries and pains such as ‘shin splints’ and plantar plate issues. Treatment included; massage, acupuncture, review on how I was running (treadmill) and I was also given exercises to do at home and lots information and tips to stop the problem reoccurring. I would like to thank Scott as it never has! A family run business who care about their clients and the results.”
