Choose From Three Options

  • $19 for a pair of prefabricated, medical-grade ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) orthotic arch supports (a $50 value)
  • $169 for a foot-and-ankle evaluation and a custom-made pair of plastic functional orthotic arch supports (a $450 value)
  • $20 for $40 toward orthotics and other foot products

The prefabricated orthotics are made with a soft EVA material that provides basic arch support. For th2e custom-made orthotics, technicians perform a 15- to 20-minute evaluation of the feet and ankles. They analyze the patient's gait and discuss issues such as hammertoes and hip, back, or knee pain. Staffers then use that information and a cast of the client's feet to create a pair of thin, plastic functional orthotic arch supports that typically last 3–5 years. These orthotics include complimentary adjustments at six-month intervals. The store showcases a variety of foot-care supplies, including diabetic socks ($12–$15), lightweight NothinZ shoes ($35), and other shoes ($60+).

Arch Fitters

The certified pedorthists at Arch Fitters use state-of-the-art technology to provide healthcare professionals, retail facilities, and individual patients with a variety of pain-relieving orthotics. They craft each custom-made pair by employing products such as advanced pressure-mapping software, malleable foam, and digital foot scans. Their raster-vector 3-D software captures 900 control points on the foot, measuring the effects of body weight and providing the outline for the frame of the orthotic. Senior orthotic designers then use SolidWorks software to edit the orthotic to each patient's specifications, adding custom options such as metatarsal pads to relieve pressure on the ball of the foot, heel wedges that improve spinal alignment, and rear oil-slick sprayers to elude the Fratellis. Finally, computerized machines carve out the wooden molds and cut the orthotics themselves from polypropylene plastic, carbon-fiber graphite, or ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA).
