Fit2Go Physiotherapy West Bridgford - Orthotics Service


A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. They help to reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. About 80% of human beings will face foot related problems at some point in life so it’s very important to relieve or prevent these problems.

There is no guess work involved as they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet from the data gathered by the RS Footscan and created using a 3D printer. These insoles are created by a company called Phits and they use high grade ultralight polyamide, specially selected to provide feet with the best comfort and most functional support. Phits insoles are a solution for every type of activity and for any type of shoe: regular shoes, running shoes, safety shoes, football boots and cycling shoes to name a few.



Orthotics support your foot and ankle during weight-bearing movements like walking and running. These custom insoles align the joints within the foot providing stability and comfort. This allows for more normalized weight distribution throughout your body, significantly reducing your pain and discomfort and helping to prevent injuries within multiple joints. Your feet are your foundations so it’s very important that these are as stable as possible to help the rest of your body. Runners absolutely love this product as it can help with any current injuries but help to prevent further ones!

3D printed custom orthotics based on dynamic gait analysis.


Step 1: RS Footscan and analysis

In the Fit2Go Physiotherapy clinic you will be asked to walk over the RS Footscan and all the 2D analysis and 3D analysis of your foot movement is completed after just a few times of walking from one side of the room to another. The high speed measurement and high sensor resolution offer a detailed view on the pressure distribution and foot movement. The movement can be played frame by frame, helping you to be able to see even the littlest of abnormalities during roll off, and/or asymmetrical movements.

The view can be rotated 360° for detailed analysis and will help you to visualise your gait and how much or little movement there is around each foot. The therapist will then explain the findings and explain if and why an orthotic is advisable. A detailed report is then created which is all the information needed to create your unique orthotic.

Step 2: 3D Printing

Based on this data, the Phits software, integrated with the Footscan technology, creates a design. This design can be adapted to your specific needs or to the advice of the therapist assessing you. A 3D-printer then transforms the digital design into ultralight custom orthotics. Afterwards the orthotics get a shock-absorbing comfort layer.

Step 3: Quality control and delivery

After a final quality check, about 2 weeks later, your therapist (If required) invites you to fit your orthotics and make sure your body gets the balance it needs with every step.


The orthotics, FootScan analysis and therapist assessment costs £280 if you decide not to order the orthotics we will charge £52 for the assessment fee.
