Boston Pedorthic with prescriptions
 
for reliable pedorthic care.
 

 

 
Boston Pedorthic is an accredited facility by the Board for Certification in Pedorthics (BCP), using knowledge and technology to appropriately dispense your prescriptions for
  • therapeutic shoes
  • custom foot orthotics
  • shoe modifications
By providing biomechanical support and alignment for the foot, and protection for risk conditions of the foot, your patients can enjoy improved foot comfort, balance and mobility.
 
Working From Prescriptions
 
We support the treatment plan determined by the clinician for diabetic foot care, arthritis, sports-related conditions, fitting braces and prosthetics to shoes, enhanced foot function and comfort and more.
 
Creating The Baseline
 
For new patients, we create a baseline measure of the function of the foot as it relates to footwear or foot orthotics, using a combination of standard pedorthic assessment and digital technology where appropriate. At each subsequent visit, we can measure the progress against the baseline and report back to the clinician.
 
Objective Assessment
 
We are committed to leveraging the latest in assessment and production technologies to assist in delivering the highest standard of care.
 
We use computers to capture a dynamic scan of the foot in real-time. The data provided from our in-shoe, pressure-sensing insoles produces useful information for various assessment criteria and the design of orthotics.
 
Our system produces digital animation of stance, and of gait for an extensive series of footfalls. This data is available in printed report form, enabling a clinician to study gait as it relates to its temporal and phasic relationship, and identifying where peak pressures are concentrated and occurring on the foot.
 
On-Site Custom Foot Orthotics Laboratory
Shoes & Modifications

 
Many patients benefit from custom foot orthotics. Orthotics deliver biomechanical support to help the foot function better, absorb and distribute shock, and provide relief from daily stress. Orthotics can positively affect total body alignment in cases where improper foot biomechanics contribute to back, hip or neck pain. We fabricate orthotics in our own laboratory, giving us great control over quality and accuracy.
 
Unlike traditional casting and plaster methods, we use a three-dimensional, digitized image of the actual foot to guide software modeling of the orthotic. A milling device then shapes the orthotic to the precise specifications of the model. Our laboratory delivers a finished and adjustable orthotic device for dispensing to the patient.
 
Boston Pedorthic stocks therapeutic and comfort shoes in a variety of widths and sizes.
 
When to Prescribe Pedorthics
 
Numerous presentations of foot pathology and symptoms result from bone, joint, or soft tissue problems that are commonly seen among multiple medical specialties - and often well-served by conservative modalities used in pedorthic care:
