Every pair of orthotics made at our fabrication lab is made using a three-dimensional impression of the foot. To create a positive mold of the foot, the cast will be filled with plaster or scanned digitally in three dimensions.
Scans are followed by CNC milling of a wood positive. Raw materials (e.g. polypropylene, subortholene, graphite, XPE etc… ) are thermo vacuumed onto the positive. Each orthotic is made custom to the patient’s foot and cast. We do NOT use “Best Fit” techniques nor “Category Library Systems” at Kiwi Orthotic Services.
