Custom insoles for flat feet, arch support insoles, and other custom insoles have become quite a trend these days in Singapore for all the right reasons. Apparently, these custom insoles not only provide great comfort, but also prevent our lower limbs from suffering from diseases, and conditions.
Apparently, looking for footwear is not always that easy because every foot is different from the others. Each person’s feet have different pronations on them, aside from having different sizes. The pronation is the shape of the foot - if the individual has elevated arches, or flat feet. If you buy a shoe that does not go with the pronation of your feet, you might suffer from different diseases, or conditions related to the feet, or your lower limbs.
To help us wear any shoe despite the pronation of our feet, podiatrists, or foot and ankle doctors, have innovated custom insoles for those who have flat feet, arched feet, and more!
These custom insoles provide quality insoles for flat feet, so there would be less strain on your feet. On the other hand, arch support insoles are for those whose feet have a more raised pronation. This support insole allows the arched feet to have less pressure on other parts that catch the weight of the person.
To get custom insoles, you must first see a podiatrist so they can assess you properly, and design the right sole for your feet.
It usually starts with an initial consultation where the podiatrist listens to your initial inquiries. This is where ideas are mostly presented, and where questions are initially asked. After this, there will be a clinical examination where the patient is assessed clinically. Here, you might undergo several tests that the podiatrist must confirm. The patient will then sign an informed consent. They will know the procedure they would go under, and the deal they signed up for.
Next, the patient will now have a musculoskeletal assessment and 3D foot scan. This is where with the cutting edge technology we have now, the patient’s feet will then be scanned for the design of the design insole. Assessed here might be if the patient has to have an insoles for flat feet, or an arch support insole. From the scan of the foot, and how the patient walks, and other considerations, the design of the insoles might then be drafted.
After proper assessment, the prescription design, and the fabrication process take place where the right custom insole will be planned, and manufactured. This insole still had to undergo quality controls and check-ups. This can have a trial and error period until it becomes perfect.
After this, the patient will then fit the insole customized especially for their feet. After this, the patient can have periodic follow-ups.
The technology now works so we can achieve a better living. These advancements were for our welfare.
