Offering Orthotics for Oshawa

Custom Made Orthotics

orthotics

Our 100% Custom foot orthotics are foot supports specifically designed to properly support your feet based on your specific needs. We make our orthotics from the highest quality light-weight and extremely durable polymers (plastics) so that your orthotics are as comfortable as possible, while still correcting how you stand and walk.  They should last for five to ten years on average.

Orthotic Group GaitScan

In order to provide only the best quality orthotics to Oshawa residents we use the highest quality sophisticated computerized diagnostic equipment, The Orthotic Group GaitScan. Our computer can take over a million measurements every second.  A full-colour video/diagram and report are available immediately following your assessment to determine what best suits your needs.  In addition to computerized assessments we take three dimensional custom molds of your feet and perform a complete biomechanical assessment of your feet and ankles.

A thorough history and examination are done right here in our Oshawa office to ensure that the orthotics will work the best for you.

Call us today at (905) 571-0821 to book your orthotics assessment.

Cost

$500.00/pair.  This includes all aspects of the orthotic fitting: custom fitting and examination, custom orthotics, follow up and annual check up.

How Long Does It Take?

The custom molding process is about thirty minutes.  The custom orthotics then take about two weeks to come in from the manufacturing lab and the fitting process after that is about ten minutes.

Do You Direct Bill?

We can direct bill for GreenShield patients only.  Unfortunately, other insurance companies do not offer direct billing for their customers.
