Our Unique Approach
BioPed has developed a unique approach to the assessment, fabrication, fitting, and adjustment of orthotics – designed to ensure that the patient gets the best possible result. Each BioPed client receives a comprehensive, hands-on biomechanical assessment focused on their feet and how they move. Any potential sources of pain and individual lifestyle factors are taken into consideration to develop a care plan that is unique to each client.
What to expect on your first Footcare visit
A complete Biomechanical Assessment takes about 45 minutes. Various tests are undertaken beginning with an assessment of muscle strength and joint flexibility; examining joints and muscles while seated, standing and walking to determine if and where abnormal function and mechanics exists. Finally, lower limb alignment is a focus, both while standing and walking.
Your Footcare Clinician will ask you a series of questions. Some questions may focus on:
- past/current health conditions
- previous injuries/surgeries
- daily activity
- workplace environment
- current footwear
After the Biomechanical Assessment is complete, your Footcare Clinician will develop an optimal treatment plan and recommend various solutions that may include stretching , home care tips, orthotics , bracing, footwear, compression socks or the need for referral to another allied health care professional or specialist.
Depending on your condition, goals and treatment plan, a BioPed Biomechanical Assessment appointment may then include: the sizing of your feet, trying-on of shoes (indoor and outdoor), the measurement/casting of your legs for compression or bracing, and/or the casting of your feet for custom orthotics.
- In preparation for your appointment, you should plan to bring the following:
- Your referral/ prescription if you have one (not required for initial visit)
- Recent imaging reports if applicable -Your 2 most commonly worn pairs of shoes
- Shorts, or plan to wear pants that can be easily rolled above the knee
- Insurance card, and be aware of your plan/coverage details prior to the appointment
