Foot Focus is one of the few Podiatry Centres in Australia to operate an orthotic manufacturing laboratory, enabling personalized care for every patient.

What are Orthotics?

Orthotics are prescription manufactured insoles for footwear. They are designed, manufactured and implemented to improve, support or correct an individual’s foot position. They may alleviate or prevent foot, leg, knee, hip or back pain. A comprehensive biomechanical assessment is undertaken prior to their supply. Orthotics are often implemented to improve performance or prevent injury for athletes.
Foot Focus has the ability to design an orthotic that specifically meets the needs for cushioning, support, performance enhancement or injury prevention. A negative cast or plantar foot impression is required before orthotics are fabricated. Foot Focus utilises plaster impression foam, plaster casts, foot profiling, pressure analysis or 3D optical foot scanning.

Orthotic Manufacturing

Foot Focus is one of the few Podiatric Centres to operate an orthotic manufacturing laboratory. It was established in 1996 to service the needs of the Foot Focus clinics. The laboratory specialises in the design and manufacture of high quality orthotics and insoles. Quality control is able to be maintained for the entire manufacturing process of the orthotics ensuring patients’ requirements are met. Rapid production of orthotics is made possible because of the laboratory’s close proximity to the clinics.
