CHILDRENS / INFANTS ORTHOTICS
I know the importance of correcting and stabilising any gait problems or aches and pains a child has at an early age as it will shape their future posture and prevent problems in the future. My lightweight children’s orthotics will be the ideal choice in ensuring your child will reduce any chances of biotechnical problems and pains in the future. Orthotics is a specialist field of medicine which focuses on the design, production and use of orthotics.
Orthotics are devices which are applied externally under the feet in order to relieve pain, prevent or correct deformity, promote or improve function of the affected area and improve the gait (the way you walk). The foot does not simply bear the weight of the whole body but the weight springs off it many times a minute in walking, running or jumping and it helps to absorb the impact of landing. The bones, ligaments and muscles absorb an enormous amount of impact during the daily routine of a child.
What is Biomechanics?
Biomechanics is the science that examines the mechanics of the body and the forces acting on the body and the effects produced and includes the study of gait analysis in relation to the feet and the lower limbs. Poor alignment of the feet and lower limbs can affect your gait and cause of problems such as pain or limited mobility, which can affect your everyday life by limiting your ability to walk, achieving a desired level fitness or performance. an Orthotics Specialist can treating such conditions their using their specialist knowledge of orthotics and footwear manufacture.
I perform a comprehensive Biomechanical assessment, which is an examination of the function of the feet, lower limbs and gait which may include HD visual recording. once I have identified the problem I will manufacture and supply individually designed orthotics/insoles using the highest quality materials and I also offer specialist advice on footwear that will work with your orthotics to suit your life style and when necessary I can work with other healthcare professionals to achieve the best possible results for you.
SPECIALIST IN CHILDREN’S SPORTS
Children enjoy running, skating and playing most sports whether its at school or in their free time, but what happens if they suffer an injury or suffer from a medical condition that affects their feet, ankles, knees or other part of their body? This can hold back their development as well as stopping them taking part and poor treatment could hinder their
I use the highest quality and most up to date materials on the market which are matched by density and flexibility to the job the orthotics have to perform while keeping them as light, thin and comfortable as possible, sometimes this means the orthotics can be made from a combination of materials such as eva, polyprop, cork, leather and many different types of cushioning and covering.
The ideal orthotics for children and infants, the EVA orthotic is manufactured in various densities for maximum shock absorption when pressure is placed on them. This will relieve foot pain and joint pain further up the leg. Even though they are soft enough to help with pain relief, they also have the durability to last for many years meaning the spring in each step you take will remain for long while.
CUSTOM MADE NON CASTED ORTHOTICS
These are made from a number of types of base material with soft or firm supports added and covered according to your needs and are designed based on measurements, outlines and photos of the feet.
PAD AND SUPPORT FITTING SERVICE
I can fit pads and supports directly into your footwear, whether its:-
Arch supports/arch pads/ met pads/met domes/met bars/heel pads/
Heel lifts/heel cushions/heel wedges and many more.
REPEATS, REPAIRS AND AFTERCARE
I have pride in the provision of my Orthotics services and ensure that you have access to efficient and effective repairs and aftercare.
I can manufacture a copy of an existing pair of orthotics, supply a repeat order, a revised pair for a different type use or activity or for a different type of footwear.
RECOVERING, REPAIR AND REFURBISHMENT SERVICE If your existing orthotics are looking tired and worn out then I can refurbish them with new top and bottom covers, new cushioning and repair or replace their heel posting blocks to extend their life.
If you already have someone dealing with your child’s foot and gait problems or someone over seeing their healthcare I’m happy to liaise with them (doctor, podiatrist, physio, surgeon, healthcare staff etc).
