About Us > What We Do
All BioPed Centres have on-site labs where we manufacture a full range of orthoses (orthotics) and provide patients with the convenience of adjustments and specialized fitting services.
During a 45 minute initial assessment, a Canadian Certified Pedorthist will conduct a thorough evaluation by first obtaining a complete medical history. Gathering information on each patient's lifestyle, work and medical history is an important element to creating the best possible treatment.
Next is the observation of surface anatomy followed by a physical examination, range of motion testing, functional testing, walking gait analysis and finally an analysis of your current footwear.
After gathering information from a detailed medical history and examination, the Pedorthist will take a three dimensional cast of both feet and from this, will manufacture your orthotics in the Clinic's on-site lab. Here, many fabrication techniques are available - allowing the Pedorthist to select the process best suited to correct or accommodate the foot condition of each patient. Your Pedorthist will ensure that your custom orthotic is properly matched to the appropriate footwear for maximum correction and comfort.
