THE BEGINNING OF PODITECH USA
Dr. Tim T. Nguyen, D.P.M., in addition to building a practice as a respected foot and ankle surgeon, founded the Poditech Orthotic Laboratory. Dr. Nguyen, a dedicated Podiatrist and research scientist, has spent much of his career searching for a more accurate and cost-effective way to make custom orthotics. After years of experimentation, he has devised and patented a customizable, over-the-counter orthotic that will adjust to virtually every foot.
Traditional prescription functional orthotics are the ideal method for treating plantar fasciitis and general foot pain. However, they are expensive due to the high labor cost, and they are prone to malfunction because of human errors made during the fabrication processes. In addition, with traditional, handcrafted orthotics, patients have to wait in pain for weeks before receiving their orthotics.
P.O.L. CUSTOM FIT ORTHOTICS
P.O.L. Custom-Fit orthotics feature a customizable, medical-grade composite orthotic shell sandwiched between comfort-cushion layers on the top and bottom. Once activated with water, it will retain the shape of your foot permanently.
Using the provided syringe, simply introduce a small amount of water into the orthotics’ water port to begin the activation and molding process. Check the size and length fitting instructions provided.
The P.O.L. Custom-Fit Orthotics have several advantages over traditional prescription orthotics. They are more affordable and ready for use in just 15 minutes. P.O.L. Custom-Fit Orthotics are made in the patient’s own shoes using the in-shoe casting technique with a high degree of accuracy. Many patients who have used both prescription functional orthotics and P.O.L. Custom-Fit Orthotics confirmed that their foot pain resolved faster with the P.O.L. Custom-Fit Orthotics.
Except for a few very technical cases, the P.O.L. Custom-Fit Orthotics can be used whenever prescription functional orthotics are indicated. Many common accommodations, such as heel lifts, metatarsal pads, and soft cushions, can be added as needed. P.O.L. Custom-Fit Orthotics are suitable for nearly all shoes, including high heels.
HOW IT WORKS
3 LAYER SUPPORT SYSTEM
To activate and start the personalization process, simply inject a small amount of water into the orthotics’ water port using the provided safety syringe.
P.O.L. Custom-Fit Orthotics are designed with a patented spring-arched bottom layer that arrives flexible and arched. When you place the activated orthotic in your shoe, the bottom layer arches up to meet the sole of your foot, and your foot compresses down against the arching orthotic to form a perfect fit, 100% customized to the unique shape of your feet. This in-shoe casting technique realigns your feet to their natural state to function at their most comfortable position. After activation, the flexible orthotic shells harden and retain the shape of your feet permanently. They are strong enough to support your weight and the pressure applied to them during your activities.
P.O.L. Custom-Fit Orthotics are suitable for all shoe types, including high heels. They are removable and transferable among shoes of similar types.
