A custom orthotic is a device worn inside footwear. It is manufactured from a 3D cast procedure of the foot which is designed to better align the foot and ankle.
At Infinity Orthotic Centre our specialty is manufacturing a full contact, truly custom made foot orthotic. We provide orthotics of unmatched craftmanship using a large variety of high quality materials.
Our Canadian Certified Pedorthists are extensively trained to use a variety of 3D casting procedures to best capture the foot alignment.
We offer several different device styles and each one can be further tailored to accommodate individual needs.
It is true, NO two orthotics are alike….
Standard – Rigid Orthotic
This is an orthotic that provides firm support to control excessive motion within the foot and ankle joint.
This type of orthotic can be ¾ length or made full length with a top cover extension.
Commonly used when:
a person has an excessively flexible range of motion within the foot and ankle joints to provide more stability
the footwear is less supportive and more shallow in depth with limited space (eg. Slip on dress shoe)
a person needs support in trim fitting sport specific footwear (cleats, skates, ski boots)
Everyday Premium – Semi-Rigid Orthotic
This is an orthotic that provides functional stability. It uses a 5-6 layer matrix of materials to provide rigid (firm) rearfoot stability and flexibility from more compressive materials throughout the midfoot.
This type of orthotic can be ¾ length, sulcus length or full length depending on support requirements.
Commonly used when:
lower limb malalignment is present and support is required to correct biomechanical position
people work long hours standing and walking to keep feet and ankles supported as fatigue occurs but also provide some shock absorption for hard walking surfaces.
Comfort – Soft Orthotic
This is an accommodative orthotic. It is typically designed with more compressive and shock absorbent materials to offload pressure from sore spots, calluses, bony prominences and to maintain balance.
This type of orthotic is most often full length.
Commonly used for:
