What makes our lab so different is our A.C.T.™ weight bearing casting method.
A.C.T. Foot Impression Techniques
While our lab can fabricate custom foot orthotics from a slipper cast or a foam impression, we prefer to use a weight-bearing impression method to capture the plantar shape of the foot. The reason for this is as follows: In casting the foot with plaster, the lateral column is loaded to lock the foot and approximate weight bearing.
