Choose Action Orthotics & Prosthetics in Penticton for custom made, or modifications to existing footwear to address a number of biomechanical foot conditions. If you have a debilitating foot condition, please consult your physician, and we can help provide you custom-made shoes, or modify your current footwear with or without custom foot orthotic intervention to help you get back on your feet.
To help provide optimal fit and function from the sole up to suit your needs alone, our custom-made footwear are made from a fiber glass mold of your feet. These shoes are made directly over the mold of your feet for the best possible results. These are quality made footwear with a higher cost associated with them due to them being fully custom made to you. Custom-made footwear is sometimes funded through your extended medical plans, the ministry of persons with disability program, WCB or ICBC. We can also modify existing footwear to suit your needs.
A few of the shoe modification services we provide are:
External shoe raise
Internal shoe raise (up to ½”)
Externally added lateral wedges to improve ankle instability
External Shoe Buttress to help improve ankle stability
Externally added rocker soles to help lessen forefoot pressures
Re-sole existing shoes
Lengthen or add Velcro straps on shoes
Adding posterior heel counter pull loops to ease in shoe donning
If you are looking for indoor footwear options, we now offer OOFOS cushioned sandals with high arch support, a rocker sole, and ¾'' of cushioning to help alleviate foot pain.
