Who Wears Them?

Orthotics are devices worn in your shoes that provide correction to your feet, helping them function more efficiently. Poor foot function and alignment may be the cause of various pains such as foot pain, hip pain, knee pain and back pain.

Why Do I Need Orthotics?

  • Your feet are a complex system of 52 bones, 66 joint, 214 ligaments and 38 tendons and muscles.
  • Even the smallest imbalance in your feet can cause pain.
  • Left untreated, chronic foot pain can prevent you from leading the active lifestyle you desire.

What Conditions Do They Help Alleviate?

Orthotics are commonly prescribed to help with hammer toes, heel spurs, metatarsal problems, bunions, diabetic ulcerations and numerous other problems. They also help to minimize shin splints, back pain and strain on joints and ligaments.

Why Is Foot Analysis Important?

The TOG system records your timing sequences during gait as you walk or run across the pressure plate. This enables your practitioner to have a clear picture of your foot mechanics and determine whether you would benefit from wearing custom made foot orthotics.

How Does The Foot Analysis System Work?

  1. Scans the foot As you walk across the pressure plate, thousands of tiny sensors capture the distribution of pressure of your foot over time.
  2. Maps Foot Pressure From your step, the computer displays 2D and 3D visual representations of the pressure under your foot. You can see where you have too much or too little pressure.
  3. Prints a Report The information is then summarized in a report that can be printed for you and your healthcare practitioner to see. The report findings will help your practitioner evaluate your foot function and determine if the pain you are experiencing is related to faulty foot function.
  4. Determines the need for Orthotic Therapy The information from this report will assist your healthcare practitioner in determining your need for orthotic therapy.
  5. Digital Data is sent to the Lab
When it is determined that you will benefit from orthotic therapy your information is then securely sent to The Orthotic Group laboratory. From there, your custom made orthotics are manufactures specifically for your feet.
The Orthotic Group (TOG) Orthotics is a leader in the production and manufacture of custom designed, high quality Orthotic insoles. TOG orthotics are custom made from unique memory flex plastic to meet your individual foot care needs. Each individual TOGS Insole is prescribed from an in-depth biomechanical analysis using the weight bearing memory foam impression kit. orthotics-soles
