Custom-fitted orthotics prescribed by Dr. Geldwert are designed to support and comfort your feet.
Orthotics are manufactured after a thorough exam of your feet, ankles, and legs. Orthotic inserts are custom designed to fit your unique foot structure and needs.
There are two types of orthotics:
- Functional orthotics help to control abnormal motion and the pain associated with this condition. They are made of a semi-rigid material like graphite or plastic.
- Accommodative orthotics provide cushioning and support and can help treat diabetic foot ulcers and painful calluses. Orthotics are effective in treating foot problems like plantar fasciitis, bursitis, tendonitis, and heel, foot, and ankle pain.
Shoe inserts from many retail stores are a standard one-size-fits-all. Custom orthotics, however, are molded to fit your foot and made of high-quality materials that are durable for years, with proper care. A prescription orthotic is made to fit your specific foot and designed to relieve your unique foot health needs.
Creating custom orthotics
Dr. Geldwert will first assess your overall health and evaluate your pain or discomfort along with contributing factors. After a thorough examination of your feet, Dr. Geldwert will check your gait and watch the movement of your feet, ankles, and legs.
Based on our evaluation, Dr. Geldwert will design the right orthotics to relieve your foot problem. Your custom devices will improve your foot movement for more mobility and comfort.
Dr. Geldwert was an early adopter of 3D custom printed orthotics developed by GO-4D and was the lead clinical investigator at SOLS, a 3D custom printing startup company.
GO-4D 3D printed custom orthotics contains unique and unprecedented segmental-biomechanical control to optimize function in each part of the foot. They are also lightweight in design. Medical grade 3D foot scanners are used for true anatomical digital casting. The orthotic is manufactured with precision and has superior outcomes.
This technology is only available in Dr. Geldwert’s New York City office.
