At Manchester Orthotics we are able to provide a shoe adaptations service. This service allows you to have adaptations added to your own shoes, providing you with the support you require without restricting your style.
Adaptations to footwear can be used for a number of different reasons including:
- To increase stability and balance
- To improve comfort
- To correct a leg length discrepancy
- To create a rocker sole
- To enable the use of an additional orthotic device such as calliper or KAFO
This can be achieved through the use of sole wedges or additions, adaptations to the shape of the sole e.g. rocker soles, calliper accommodations and height additions.
Whilst our experience team will work their best to ensure your shoes can be adapted some footwear will not be suitable for your requirements. Your orthotist will be able to explain this in more detail at your assessment to ensure of the best outcome.
