Relasting

Toe Skates

A subtle modification that assists those who suffer from toe drag; a side affect of foot drop, commonly seen in those who have survived a stroke, or suffer from a form of muscular dystrophy, this is achieved by replacing the surface area of sole that catches during gait with a smooth material in order to reduce frisk, thereby reducing the trips risk

Rocker Sole

A rocker sole modification is usually done in unison with other modifications, but can still be done as a standalone to most footwear. A rocker sole's main focus is to replicate the lost of range of motion in a joint, and depending on the location of the joint will determine the type of rocker sole required; perfect for ankle fusions, hallux limitus and/or hallux rigidus

Buttress

Instability at the ankle can cause people a lot of pain and discomfort, and sometimes prefabricated ankle braces don't offer enough support and custom-made AFO's can be cumbersome and expensive; this is why we have the ability for you to modify your footwear to increase ankle stability by adding a buttress; great for people with Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction
