    Hi,

    I've recently started a private practice and am looking for a good supplier of high quality but reasonably priced custom made orthotics in the UK. So far I have tried Langer, the quality is good but can be a bit pricey once you start trying to add modifications. Does anyone have experience with any other good manufacturers?

    Thanks!

    Linda

    Hi Linda

    I personally use Steve Dowdeswell at Precision labs http://www.pmorthotics.com/ - inclusive prices with the most important bit - he is a podiatrist who can offer technical support and advice. This is really important in my opinion.

    Steven - thanks; added it to my list.
    Not sure how I missed it as I have seen website before ---- maybe the emphasis on therapeutic shoes through me off it being a "lab"

    Craig,

    You are correct, the emphasis is on shoes for our USA Medicare diabetic shoe program although we have a very large lab to fabricate custom diabetic orthotics to fit into the shoes. We also mill out functional orthotics using the Oretek software which makes a great Kirby skive. Lastly, we manufacture EVA reinforced Polypro prefabricated orthotics and a huge assortment of foot pads. Podiatrists, Cpeds and Orthopedic surgeons are always asking me questions and Podiatry-arena helps me stay current. I should send you a check for this Ad!

    For any labs owners reading this, the best top cover I have found is called the Topper, made by Valuefoams.com. I discovered their product at the PFA conference in Orlando last year and have been using it ever since. It is a 3mm thick high durable and high rebound Neoprene as SBR has been added to the neoprene. A special woven fabric is laminated to the material that greatly reduces shear. It's easy to grind and stretches well for application. I do not know if the company distributes outside of the USA but they should.

  11. Hi Linda

    I will forward a little information by the message system.

    We are a quality bespoke provider of orthotics. As Phil kindly mentioned, the prices are inclusive and include FREE inbound postage and a standard 5 - 7 day turnaround. Whilst we are not generous enough to offer a sample pair free, we will remake and/or adjust the 1st 10 pairs FOC should you have difficulty. That service is a standard service.

    Kindest Regards

    Craig,

    Add Cadmed to your list. We are located in Sweden and specialized in EVA orthotics using mostly CAD/CAM. However, we do serve the British market with very high quality and competitive prices. Visit cadmed.se (Swedish only thus far)

    I have used Langers for years.

    Whilst they are expensive ( and getting more so!) they have never let me down, always available with advice should I ask for it, I find the quality is good.

    In the end you ( and your Pts ) get what they pay for and I find my Pts want a product that is better and quicker than they can get in the NHS.

    G'Day Craig,

    Hereen P/L

    Medical Grade Footwear, Orthotics, AFO's

    The company has also developed a 3D Radial Arm Scanner From knee to toes. Manly used for the footwear industry but crosses over for podiatrist to scan feet orthotics

    I don't personally work directly with orthoses anymore but in the fairly recent past, I have used Firefly and always found their products to be of good quality. No idea on pricing but I work in an NHS hospital so I would imagine they must have been competitive. I found their staff to be very helpful and accommodating. If in the future I need orthoses for my patients in private practice, I wouldn't hesitate in going back to them.
