Highly accurate orthoses can be manufactured and designed with the aid of computerised technology or hand made in various densities of materials such as Eva/Nora and usually in conjunction with other shock absorbency materials. Postings and pressure relieving pads can also be combined. With orthotics we manufacture them from a plastic/carbon fibre type material.
These inlays are also custom-made and continue to be supplied mostly through the Health Service although available privately on request. These basic insoles are designed more to accomodate the feet and to achieve comfort rather than attempt to correct.

These details are stored within our Paromed system that allows exact repeat orders to be produced.
