Congratulations on receiving your custom foot orthotics

Please read the instructions bellow to get the most out of your orthotics

  Insole replacement instructions

1

Remove Insole

For the best fit, take out the removable insole if there is one.

2

Line Up & Trace

Place the shoe insole on top of the orthotic, (A) line up both the backs of the heels and (B) the inside the edges, and then (C) use a pen to trace the outline of the shoe insole onto the orthotic.
NOTE: If the insole can’t be removed, place the footwear on top of orthotic and trace an outline around the toe.

3

Trim

Cut along the OUTSIDE of the traced line. Don’t worry if it’s too long, you can always trim a little more. Trim it, try it... trim it, try it.

4

Insert & Test

Put the trimmed orthotic into the shoe.
NOTE: Test to make sure the orthotic can shift front to back inside about 1/16” or 2mm (the width of a nickel), so the insole can work with the natural movement of the foot inside the shoe.

It is very important that your orthotics sit flat and level inside your shoes. If the bottom of your shoes are too narrow to allow the orthotics to sit flat and level, you may need to change your shoe gear or discuss other orthotic options with your health practitioner. It takes approximately ten days to become accustomed to your new orthotics.

Do not wear orthotics for athletic activity during the break-in period. Wait until the tenth day before doing any intense activity - such as running - while wearing your orthotics. If you experience any joint pain while wearing orthotics, stop wearing the orthotics and contact your prescribing practitioner. Each orthotic is custom made for you and your needs so it is important to follow instructions from your prescribing practitioner.

  Cleaning care instructions  

Orthotic Care

Your devices may be washed periodically with soap and warm water. Allow your devices to air dry.
Do not soak your devices in liquid. Do not use a heating appliance to dry your devices, i.e., hair dryer, clothing dryer, heat gun, or heat lamp.

Typical Wear & Life Span

The lifespan of your devices will depend on a few factors. A patient’s activity level, size, and frequency of use will all have an affect on how long your devices last. The padding and top covers will typically wear out before the shell and posts. When you begin to see excessive wear, make an appointment to see your prescribing practitioner. Following a biomechanical exam, your practitioner may choose to make new devices, if your foot has changed since your orthotics were prescribed, or refurbish the devices you already have.

Inspect Your Orthotics

Taking your devices out of your shoes periodically for cleaning and inspection will ensure that your orthotics are still in good shape, no debris has gotten under your devices causing instability, and no part of the devices is experiencing excessive wear. If anything appears to be out of the ordinary please do not hesitate to contact you prescribing practitioner.

Enjoy your new orthotics!
