Are custom-made shoe inserts orthotics?

Biocorrect, LLC


Many people wonder whether a certain product is technically an orthotic device. This is generally a simple question to answer, as the term “orthotics” has a pretty straightforward definition. Also known as an orthosis, an orthotic device is any object that can be applied to the body to support, stabilize, improve alignment or immobilize a specific area. 

Since custom-made shoe inserts are devices that are placed under the feet to provide cushioning, alignment and support, they certainly fit the definition of an orthotic. However, not all shoe inserts are created equal. To help you better understand the qualities that go into higher-grade orthotics, we’re happy to share the following basic information. 

What to look for in custom-made orthotic shoe inserts

Over-the-counter inserts are often flimsy and poorly fitting, while prescription orthotics can be prohibitively expensive and time-consuming. Look for an orthotic that offers a middle ground of quality, value and convenience. 

At Biocorrect, we’re proud to offer just such a solution with our fully custom orthotic insoles. Here are just some of the benefits they offer:

  • Made with high-quality materials
  • Promote the natural biomechanics of the foot
  • Crafted by experts with extensive experience
  • Can be fitted in-office or from your own home with our moldable foam impression kit

Our custom-made shoe inserts are for people from all walks of life, and our satisfied customers range from shift workers to elite athletes.

We’re committed to quality and have a very high success rate. Here’s what just one of our happy wearers had to say: 

“I went to Biocorrect to see if I could get relief from constant leg pain caused by iliotibial band syndrome. The orthotics from Biocorrect gave me immediate relief, so I recommended my husband get orthotics to help with ankle pain from an old ankle injury (broken ankle). He has found great relief also. We have always had great service, and would highly recommend Biocorrect for pain relief. The orthotics have certainly improved our quality of life."
