About Us > The Right Process For The Best Results
The first step of the manufacturing process is now ready to begin. First, both feet are casted. As industry leaders, BioPed Pedorthists only use three dimensional casting techniques including mouldable wax, foam, plaster casting or a pin array computerized system. These methods are best suited for capturing the contours of the entire foot.
From here, the Pedorthist is able to create a wide range of orthotics to suite each patient's specific needs. All orthotics are fabricated in our own on-site labs to ensure full quality control and the convenience of on-the-spot adjustments as needed. Once the orthotics are manufactured, your Pedorthist will schedule an appointment to evaluate the fit of the orthotics and make any necessary adjustments. During the initial fitting, it is not unusual to make minor adjustments before the orthotics and footwear are partnered properly.
BioPed also carries great looking footwear including – athletic, comfort, dress, sandals, orthopaedic and safety shoes – all of which can be modified to fit most foot types. Patients are not left having to find a pair of shoes on their own, which can often result in improper selection of footwear – a contributor to the very problem we are attempting to resolve.
