At Sandgate Podiatry we endeavour to provide our customers with the best treatment possible. We do this by linking with the best technology used in today’s modern day medicine.
Orthema is the next generation of CAD/CAM foot orthotic fabrication systems and has been highly recognised as the world leader in the foot orthotic industry. Our digitial foot scanner accurately measures the foot to 0.1mm using close to 600 stainless steel measuring sensor pins to allow both the podiatrist and patient to view a 3D and 2D topographical version of their foot in its correct foot alignment. This whole process is completed in under 1 minute.
From this information captured, our Orthema milling machines allow for orthotics to be manufactured within 30 minutes of completing a foot scan. Making Orthema the most efficient and accurate system world wide. Meaning that not only can you have a 3D scan taken of your foot on the day of your consultation but you can have your orthotics the SAME DAY leaving you walking pain free!
In the past, foot orthotics were known as rigid plastic devices which we have found most patients are unable to tolerate and thus at Sandgate Podiatry we offer a large range of orthotic densities to accommodate any foot, regardless of the presenting complaint.
Orthema orthotics are highly effective in treating a range of podiatric foot conditions including heel pain, flat feet, sporting injuries, osteoarthritis, chronic lower back pain, postural complaints and many more. Enquire for a biomechanical assessment today.
