Precision And Care From Examination To Manufacture
We will begin with a thorough history and examination of your feet, ankles and limbs. We can also use our computerised OptoGait(tm) gait analysis system as an efficient aid to diagnosis. Our lead podiatrist, Jonathan Palmer Bsc (pod) has nearly two decades experience and successfully treated thousands of HM Royal Marines and private patients. Detecting your bio-mechanical defits is our priority. We will take corrective plaster casts and process these through a computer laser scanner. Our manufacturing laboratory will make up your orthotics to our exacting specifcation casts to ensure perfect fit and comfort.
Examination and Casting
