Custom Orthotics at the Speed of Light
5 Minutes to Pain Relief
Light Orthotics uses safe UV technology to mold a flexible, light-curing composite material into a rigid orthotic in under 5 minutes. With minimal training, custom forming can be conducted by a resident or trained assistant, freeing up valuable time for the practitioner to see other patients. The patient receives custom orthotics in one office visit for immediate relief of foot pain.
Light Orthotics represents a new type of casting method. The Light Orthotics method uses a seated, semi-weight bearing position, with the foot and flexible Prethotic® pressed against an elastic fitting film. The elastic film provides resistance against the foot, conforming the Prethotic directly to the plantar surface of the foot during molding. By curing the Prethotic directly on the patient’s foot, Light Orthotics enables an accurate medial and lateral arch fit and more consistency when capturing arch height and heel cup shape.
Light Orthotics are Designed for Comfort
Patient compliance is improved by a lightweight orthotic that is comfortable for longer wear. The Light Orthotics have breathable PORON® Foam for full-foot cushioning with a shock-absorbing heel pad. The lightweight, semi-rigid composite design includes unidirectional, non-woven fibers and light-curing resin for strength and flexibility without bulk, and the resulting orthotics can be easily modified as needed for the patient. Light Orthotics are available in Full Length and ¾ Length styles, as well as Kids’ sizes.**
