A combination of several skill sets are required for an orthotic intervention to yield successful results. Among them, is the ability to specifically address the patient’s needs by producing a device that would consider anatomical variations.
This means creating an orthotic that can provide the maximum corrective force to the plantar surface of the foot, whilst allowing functional pronation and optimal supination.
In order to achieve this, it is important to incorporate the patient’s bodyweight, foot flexibility, arch shape and activity levels into the manufacturing and design of each orthotic.
MASS4D® guarantees no collapse of the medial arch during full weight-bearing by fabricating the orthotic in such a way that it matches the body weight of the wearer.
Forefoot flexibility test, a critical component of the MASS4D® proprietary calibration process, is performed during pre-casting evaluation.
The forefoot flexibility test guarantees that the orthotic would provide the patient with the right amount of flexibility and rigidity needed to create a functional change.
A detailed assessment of the foot and ankle is required to spot any irregularities in the function of this complex. This includes the patient’s static analysis, gait analysis and shoe wear pattern.
Any prominent deformities or malalignments in the foot/ankle complex need to be observed and noted.
Attention must be paid to the patient’s work and home situation, in case, the patient is frequently involved in any laborious type of activity that could affect foot function.
Based on the flexibility parameters, the resultant orthotic creates a properly positioned calcaneus with a maximally supported supinated arch and needed functional pronation.
The relationship of foot posture to full body structure is well documented, therefore each person’s weight and activities must be calibrated into every pair of orthotics to ensure optimal success.
