What Are Orthotics?

An Orthotic is a device used to support, align, prevent, or correct deformities or to improve the function and mobility of the body.  "Insoles" typically refers to custom made foot orthoses that are worn in a person’s shoes. 

By definition, any time you combine any two items together to form a new object, it can be considered custom made. This means that a pre-made insole with a new top cover glued into place may be labeled as a ``custom made`` device, when in reality it is just a modified pre-existing support.  There is a significant difference between a custom made device and a custom molded one, and without knowing what questions to ask, you may end up with the wrong device!
