CUSTOM ORTHOTICS

  • Use custom orthotics to put in footwear to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the foot and lower limb. As a result, health professionals prescribe orthotics based on a combination of knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, biomechanics, and engineering. Every foot is different, and there is no one size fit all approach since people deal with different bone structures, foot size, foot width, and length. Unless you are at home, we recommend that use custom orthotics whenever possible if prescribed by a medical practitioner.

    All things considered, use 3D printed custom orthotics to:

    • Control, guide, limit and/or immobilise a joint
    • Assist with movement.
    • Reduce weight-bearing forces and redistribute pressure.
    • Aid in rehabilitation soft the tissue of skeletal injuries.
    • Improve function and increase performance.
    • Manipulate the shape and/or function of the lower limb, to provide easier movement capability or reduce pain.
    • Reduce the chance of injury and pathology within the lower limb.
  • 3D printed orthotics don’t just look fancy but they are better in every way. While stronger, they are also dramatically lighter. Moreover, they are more accurate and remarkably less bulky with a customisable surface that moulds into a soft cover. All our 3D printed orthotics are 100% tailor-made to the shape of your foot unlike more conventional inserts available on the market. Moreover, there are many different orthotic shapes, designs and colours available so you can get the most out of our custom orthotics.

    Built via CAD-CAM, 3D printed orthotics have a world of possibilities.

    While Handmade orthotics may have a degree of human error, the computer designs mean perfection ever time. The software was originally intended to build pieces of complex designs before but it was later redeveloped for medical use. in fact, the software now plays a huge part in aiding in mobility and improved the quality of orthotics significantly. All of our 3D custom orthotics improve performance while aiding support for professional athletes and people in their everyday lives too.

  • Generally speaking, try our 3D custom orthotics if you experience feet, hips, knees and back pain.

    • In addition, they can assist and manage nerve damage.
    • Our most advanced 3D custom orthotics can help with circulatory issues.
    • Likewise, they are great for people who suffer from arthritis.
    • Additionally, they may assist with foot deformity
    • Furthermore, 3D custom orthotics can assist with leg length differences
    • Try our most advanced 3D custom orthotics if you have balance issues
    • Corns and callous
    • Not to mention if you have a history of warts or ulcerations
  • Call us to find out if your private health care provider covers our 3D Orthotics. There are a few things to consider before we can complete our assessment since your level of cover depends on your policy waiting periods, annual limits and fund rules. It is important to know what you are up for prior to your visit at one of our Gold Coast clinics to avoid unwanted, expensive surprises. Although, in some circumstances, we offer Gap-free 3D custom orthotics.

  • Some orthotics laboratories use milling methods and as a result, produce a high amount of waste that eventually ends up in a landfill. Usually, current, more conventional milling methods use approximately 1.5kg of materials (of which 1.4kg is waste) to manufacture a pair of polypropylene orthotics.

    ACE Health Centre only uses the latest 3D printing methods which use around 80 grams of materials with zero waste to produce a pair of the most advanced 3D custom orthotics.
