Here at Point of Balance Physiotherapy Ltd, our physiotherapists have received comprehensive training in gait analysis technology through The Orthotic Group. Their combined knowledge of foot biomechanics, gait analysis interpretation as well as extensive clinical expertise in assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions affords them the ability to prescribe, fit and dispense custom foot orthotics designed to meet the needs of individual clients.

The GaitScanTM system is an innovative diagnostic tool and digital casting device that allows our knowledgeable staff to analyze the biomechanics of gait. Pressure mapping data in both static (standing) and dynamic (walking) stance provides valuable information about alignment, weight-bearing ratios and response to gravitational forces. This allows for more accurate prescription and design of custom foot orthotics. We also use semi-weight bearing sub-talar neutral foam impressions to manufacture foot orthotics.

Custom molded foot orthotics are generally recommended to improve foot mechanics, influence and correct the amount of motion that occurs around the joints of the foot and decrease pain while adding support. Dynamic alteration of lower limb mechanics and gait through orthoses may also help in the correction of pathologic conditions other than those of the foot and ankle, such as back, hip, or knee malalignment or pain.

Our orthotics are produced with specificity and attention to detail and our brand name footwear have proven to be in a class apart in terms of comfort, and design. Our physiotherapists would be pleased to discuss our orthotic assessment process and pricing options with you. We are familiar with the requirements of most Extended Health Benefits and our administrative staff would be happy to address your concerns or questions in this regard.
