Customized Orthotics Insoles Singapore
Customized Orthotics Insoles Singapore
Individuals that suffer from poor foot mechanics can experience discomfort and pain when they stand and walk. You see, our human feet has 26 different bones which are kept stable together with our ligaments and muscles that serve as joints and pulleys.
Biomechanical problems in our feet can lead to poor alignment which causes unnecessary stress on these bones, and it can lead to a cascading problem of leading to pain in other joints such as the ankle, knee, hips and even back (yes) which can be impacted due to the uneven weight distribution.
A customized orthotic insole is a device that can quickly improve and restore the natural function of your feet, posture and movement.
Customized Orthotics Insoles Singapore VS Regular Off The Shelf Insoles
It's vital to not confuse the customized orthotic insoles with those that you can buy cheaply off the shelves in stores - the regular off the shelf kinds are designed purely for comfort, with some shock absorption properties. They can be rather comfortable to wear and can seem like they're helping you, but they're not really helping with the core issue, which is correcting the foot mechanics. In the long term, your condition may progress because it is not treated adequately.
Customized orthotic insoles are medically designed to correct and optimize the function of our feet, to evenly distribute weight and pressure across all joints and remove any pain that are caused to our feet from problems such as corns, bunions, heel spurs or ankle pains.

Types of orthotic insoles
There are different types of customized orthotic insoles, and they all serve different problems.
An example that requires the need for customized orthotic insoles is excessive pronation or also commonly known as flat feet. What causes flat feet is the natural arching of the foot collapses/collapsed due to weight/force, and flat footed can lead to other problems. If you know someone who is flat footed, it'd be wise to suggest to them to see a podiatrist for assessment, evaluation and treatment of flat foot through the prescription of customized orthotic insoles.
Customized orthotics are insoles that are designed and custom-made to meet the requirement of a specific problem. What the podiatrist will do is to assess the range of motion, do a gait analysis, identify the core issue then the podiatrist will fabricate it for you, catering specifically to your foot.
Insoles come under five different types, these are:
- Rigid insoles-
to control movement
- Semi-rigid insoles
athletes and physical activity, providing balance
- Soft insoles
pain relieve and ease pressure
- Calibrated (customised)
insoles - to help flexibility, weight and activity levels
Sometimes you can purchase orthotic insoles over the counter without prescription, but most of the time common commercial/retail/normal shoes may not be able to fit them very well or easily.
