Orthotics are molded to the exact shape of the patient’s foot when they are non-weight bearing. The purpose of a non-weight baring mold is to get the arch at optimal position before it has a chance to drop.

They are constructed from a variety of materials, including thermoplastics or metal, carbon fiber, fabric, elastic, or a combination of materials.
