a computer 30 times per second allowing for 3/100 second
interval analysis of each footstep.
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.
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.
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.
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.
