Hi, I’m Lee Thorlby,
For over 41 years I had been working and training in London in the orthotic and orthopaedic footwear industry, Assessing customers foot and gait problems, manufacturing and supplying orthotics and orthopaedic footwear, travelling from London, all over the country too help customers with their foot and gait problems and having customers come from all over the world for me to help them. Now after many years of working from London (just off the end of Harley St) and living in Hertfordshire and having to travel in and out of London, I’m now working from My workshop based in Hatfield, visiting and helping customers in and around Herts, London and the home counties with their foot, gait and associated footwear problems, supplying Harley St expertise, service and quality at lower prices.
The custom-made/bespoke orthotics, footwear and footwear adaptions I supply are all personally made by myself as its far more successful for the person who assessed your foot and gait problems, and then detailed the specifications for your orthotics or footwear to actually manufacture them. podiatrists rarely make or know how to make their customer’s orthotics, they usually send them out to a third party who has never seen the customer’s feet or gait and therefore has to rely on third party instructions and if you need a raise added to your footwear or remedial adaptions to your footwear you will find that a podiatrist will not be able to carry out this work for you and sometimes the best course of treatment is combination of orthotics and footwear adaptions, So whether its custom-made orthotics, a footwear raise, adaptions or support pads fitted into your footwear, all the work is carried out by myself, even if your existing orthotics are looking tired and worn out I can recover, repair or fully refurbish them to extend their life.
As I manufacture orthotics and bespoke footwear for those who may experience pain or discomfort when they walk or take part in sporting activities, My services are on a call-out basis which involves travelling to your place of residence, workplace, hospital, clinic, gym etc, then assessing your problems and then taking measurement and impressions of your feet to begin the orthotic or footwear development process and once the orthotics or footwear have been completed they are delivered to you, which can be of great benefit for those who have painful feet, difficulty getting about or have busy lifestyles.”
The orthotics I manufacture are specially designed to work with your footwear and offer support, provide comfort, relieve pain and improve performance when taking part in physical activities. All the orthotics I manufacture and supply are made by myself and utilise the highest quality materials available, which are matched to the job the orthotics need to perform

Podiatry is a specialism involved in treatment of disorders of the lower limbs, usually below the knee. This may require the provision of in-shoe devices (Orthotics, usually manufactured by a third party). but can also mean more palliative interventions such as the treatment of skin lesions (calluses, ulcers etc).
Whilst the field of Orthotics has similarities with Podiatry, it encompasses the whole of the musculo-skeletal system and is aimed at manufacturing and supplying a wide variety of externally applied devices (Orthotics) which will prevent or correct deformity, promote function and offer pain relief. These range from relatively simple to extremely complex devices and can include footwear adaptions and adjustments.
Orthotics is a specialist field of medicine which focuses on the design, production and use of orthotics. Orthotics are devices which come in many shapes and sizes, which are applied externally under the feet in order to prevent or correct deformity, relieve pain, relieve pressure, and improve function of the affected area and improve the gait (the way you walk). Orthotics can be manufactured in many materials and colours, and designed for many uses.
