Designing Your Orthotic Brace:
After we examine your requirements we move onto designing an orthotic brace that fits all of your requirements and offers you maximum comfort. Your orthotic brace will be unique to you and is designed according to your body structure to ensure it fits the needs of your ailment.
The procedure requires us to take the necessary measurements or in some cases take a cast of the limb for a customized mold. We offer different services of casting such as plaster bandage, foam box impression, fiberglass bandage and slipper casting.
Your orthotist will use one of these methods to create a precise life size mold of your body part. Your cast will harden within a few minutes, after which it will be removed. The cast is used as a mold and is filled in with liquid plaster that will serve as the actual impression of your body part.
This casting process helps your orthotist position your limb with the correct alignment. Based on this process and the instructions provided by your supervising doctor, your required orthotic will be prepared.
