Stride Orthopaedics and Footwear


When extra care is needed

Accommodative Foot Orthoses are designed to address structural deformities in the foot, and provide a protective environment for the soft and bony tissues of the foot. Typically, an accommodative orthosis is made of several layers of material, and is quite soft in nature. A semi-weight bearing impression is typically used.


Depending on the nature of the disease process or painful condition, and the diagnosis, the Certified Pedorthist (Canada) will design a foot orthosis that will support areas of the foot, and cushion others. An accommodative orthosis requires appropriate footwear to work properly. Often other treatments are used in concert with the accommodative orthosis, including appropriate seam free socks,and an extra-depth shoe is recommended to fit the orthosis appropriately.


Accommodative Orthoses are indicated, but not limited to treatment of Diabetes, all forms of Arthritis, hyperkeratosis (severe callusing), in cases where ulceration is a possibility or there is a history of foot ulceration.
