A biomechanical assessment and gait analysis are then performed to gather the variables needed to know what your “best” foot position is and the amount of support that is required to reduce forces and movement through the feet and lower limbs.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_tta_section tab_id=”1441874105862-625e36ff-76a2da83-8b0e”][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”15566″ style=”vc_box_rounded” qode_css_animation=””][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]After the consultation the Podiatrist sends a 3D Scanned file as well as a prescription form to an Orthotic lab which then mills the exact shape of the feet out of a sheet of plastic called EVA (Ethylene vinyl acetate).
