Custom made prescription orthotics make a huge difference in the lives of many of our patients. We utilize the Footmaxx system to give you the best fit for your unique feet and gait.
If you are looking for custom made prescription orthotics to help correct such symptoms as over-pronation causing bunions, plantar fasciitis, corns, calluses, shin splints, runner's knee, ilio-tibial band syndrome, low back pain, heel spurs or piriformis syndrome we can help.
If you're an athlete at any level it is important that the foundation from which you perform is functioning at an optimal level.
If you are working on you feet all day, especially on cement type surfaces and taking more than the average 10,000 steps a day you are also a candidate for custom prescription orthotics.
At Lifestyle Health Centre, located in Langley B.C, we know the health of your body rests on your feet!
Footmaxx Dynamic Gait and Pressure Analysis
The Footmaxx System offers the only means by which to assess a patient's gait and fabricate a custom orthotic device using computerized, dynamic, weight-bearing data instead of a static, non-weight bearing mold of the shape of the foot. This is key to making truly efficacious orthotics because it's not the shape of the foot that causes the problem; it's how the foot functions while bearing weight.
When digitized patient scan data is received at the Footmaxx manufacturing facility, a detailed Gait Analysis and Pressure Report containing diagnostic information is generated. This report becomes part of the permanent patient file as well as supporting documentation for government and insurance claims.
Truly computerized weight bearing, dynamic gait analysis leading to a prescription foot orthotic is finally here! Footmaxx prescription foot orthotics are custom crafted. No negative foot molds are required - instead, digitized gait and pressure data is sent to the lab via modem. Footmaxx semi-rigid prescription foot orthotics have revolutionized the way both clinicians and patients evaluate foot orthotics. Simply walking a patient across a Footmaxx forceplate does this. The entire gait and pressure test takes only minutes, and offers the most consistent and accurate modality for manufacturing custom orthotics.
Footmaxx is a young, dynamic Canadian company offering the only truly computerized system for fabricating prescription foot orthotics. In less than two years, we have become the largest supplier of orthotics in Canada and we are proud to say that 29 of 30 Major League Baseball teams and 13 National Football League teams wear our product.
Our Metascan dynamic software scans the foot 150 times per second tracking 8 key points along the plantar surface of the foot. Our dynamic display captures bilateral plantar pressure during the stance phase of gait. Gait observations show each of the 8 key points relative to pressure and time in a colour corresponding to the 2D and 3D composite image and displays gait analysis data. The Full Normal Graph compares the patient's 8-point graph to a normal graph of the stance phase of gait. The Metascan diagnostics translates the digital information along with the clinician information into a prescription for custom orthotics.
