 About Us

In our Comfort-Step clinic the patient walks across the force plate of the CSC-System which contains 960 capacitance points and is scanned by a computer 30 times per second allowing for 3/100 second interval analysis of each footstep.

Then sends the patient file to our lab via modem. At the lab, the patient's file is analyzed by the specialist (DPM). With the proprietary software, CSC-System, a Gait and Pressure Analysis Report is generated and, if necessary, a prescription for orthotics is specified.

The manufacturing process begins with a specification sheet generated by CSC-System which is coupled with any additional instructions indicated by the medical practitioner. A semi-rigid orthotic module is intrinsically posted which means that the angle and height of the arch of the orthotic module is formed and molded based on the prescription needed to correct the patient's abnormal biomechanics. Intrinsic posting is the secret that makes the orthotics thin and easy to wear in any type of shoe.

When extrinsic posting is specified by a clinician (or CSC-System), our lab offers the same types of materials and modifications available from any podiatry lab. Extrinsic posting includes any additional materials that must be added to the orthotic module to help correct abnormal biomechanics.

The orthotic is finished with a top cover, a covering piece of material that absorbs perspiration or odor. Then it is smoothed and sanded so that it fits comfortably and easily in the patient's shoes.

Within just days of receiving an orthotic order via modem, the customization process is complete and the orthotics are sent to the Quality Control Department where they are carefully checked against the CSC-System prescription and the clinician's instructions.

Once the orthotics are approved by quality control, they are shipped to the patient. Digital patient data is permanently stored at our associated lab making patient progress easier to track; a feature that only we can offer.
