Are slipper cast orthotics the best, or are the foam, 3D scans, or other types better? Well, the first thing to know is as technology improves there will be more options for you to choose from.
But having all the options to choose from when getting orthotics will make it a bit more challenging to know what works best.
So in the video above, you’ll learn about which type of orthotic process is the best to create the most accurate orthotic.
Just in case you’re not sure what slipper cast orthotics are, that’s where plaster is wrapped around the foot, and then a bag is placed over everything, and the air is removed.
This creates a pressure mold of your foot.
The 3D scan orthotics process is exactly what it sounds like. A digital scan is made of your foot. From there, an orthotic is created based on that scan.
The foam process is generally where the foot is pressed into foam which leaves an impression. Then an orthotic is made from that impression.
There are also pressure mats, and other types of devices that you can stand on that create impressions of your feet.
As you can see, there are a lot of options.
So is the slipper cast orthotic the best? Or is it the 3D scan or other methods?
