What is a Fastech custom orthotic?
It is a directly formed foot supportive devise that, when worn in shoes, this insole positions the feet in proper biomechanical alignment to alleviate pain in your feet, heels, knees and throughout your body. Your custom foot orthotics and supports are made to the specific contours and structural characteristics of your feet. Orthotics support the foot and ankle during weight-bearing movements like walking, running, skiing and more. These custom foot beds and insoles align the joints within the foot providing stability and comfort. This allows for more normalized weight distribution, significantly reducing pain and discomfort and helping to prevent injuries like shin splints.
What is special about Fastech Custom Foot Orthotics?
This modern high-tech foot support product is made from the most supportive and shock absorbing materials available. Fastech foot support products were first developed to custom fit ski boots. The use of these products quickly spread to other athletic needs because of their superior characteristics in reducing foot pain, heel pain, lower back pain as well as shin splints and other athletic related discomfort and injuries. Fastech insoles and orthotic foot products are in use today in every major professional sport and in over fifty top college athletic programs.
Who needs custom foot orthotics?
Everyone benefits from proper foot support. Specifically, if you suffer from foot, shin, knee, hip or back pain you will greatly benefit from Fastech Custom Foot Orthotics. We work with specialty retailers, chiropractors, podiatrists, athletic trainers and a host of professionals who provide prescription footwear and shoe insoles for their patients.
Do Fastech foot orthotics require special shoes?
The important fact is the better the shoe, the better the orthotic works. The orthotic insole supports the foot and the shoe supports the foot and orthotic. The Fastech foot orthotic can be made to fit easily in most shoes. Shoes with removable insoles that have good support work best. The best example of this type of shoe is a comfort shoe designed for walking. This shoe has a round toe box, laces and a firm heel area. A thinner Fastech shoe insole can also be designed to fit dress shoes.
How long does it take to get Fastech foot orthotics?
The evaluation and fabrication of the custom orthotic will take less than one half-hour. Special needs may require the use of the in-house service from Fastech Labs. This will require additional time, but a fast and efficient turnaround is promised.
