• Hard 3D custom Orthotics are usually made from a firm material such as nylon, polypropylene, carbon fibre or firm EVA. They tend to be a lot more durable, and supportive than softer options. However, we don’t really prescribe soft orthotics for general use unless you have a deformity or a high-risk vascular issue.

     

  • This will be down to your assessment. Our Gold Coast podiatrists will take into account your foot structure, shoes, flooring, medical history, durability, support needed, weight and much more. They carefully assess whether you need hard (polypropylene) or soft (Ethyl, Vinyl, Acetate, EVA) orthotics.

  • Call us to find out whether our hard 3D custom orthotics are covered by your private health care provider. Check your level of cover, waiting periods, annual limits and fund rules prior to your visit at our Gold Coast clinics to avoid unwanted, expensive surprises.
