The Benefits of Orthotics
Kinetic Health offers 100% custom made orthotics, individually designed to meet your specific needs. We often prescribe orthotics to help address foot, knee, leg or back issues. In addition, we prescribe occupational orthotics, and sports orthotics to support a wide range of activities.
Defects in materials or workmanship are guaranteed for 12 months.
Minor adjustments to your original prescription for fit, function or comfort will be made at no charge for 6 months.
All our custom-fit orthotics come with full money back guaranteed for 60 days.
Our Custom Fit Orthotics Process
We start with a thorough biomechanical gait analysis on each and every patient that come to see us for orthotics. This step helps us to get the information that we need to custom design an orthotic that is just right for you. In addition, many insurance companies require this information before they will cover the cost of the Orthotics.

After completing the biomechanical assessment, we will take a foam impression of your foot, in a non-weight bearing position. We do this by having you sit near the edge of chair with your knees and ankles bent to 90 degrees. We then lock our your subtalar joint and make an impression in a special foam casting material. We apply equal pressure to the fore-foot and heel to obtain the best impression for plaster casting.
We ship the foam cast impression to Kiwi Orthotic Services (in Vancouver British Columbia) for fabrication. Kiwi Orthotic Services is a professional Orthotics Laboratory. The turnaround time for custom-fit orthotics is usually 10 days (barring mailing delays).
Our clinic will call you when we receive your custom-fabricated orthotics. You will also be given a Fabrication Certificate of Authenticity. This certificate provides information that your insurance company may require for reimbursement. (Click on the image to view a sample of the “Fabrication Certificate of Authenticity”.
Insurance Coverage & Cost of Orthotics
Our custom orthotics are covered by most insurance plans, often for up to 80 to 100% of the cost. In addition, many insurance plans require a Fabrication Certificate of Authenticity and some require a biomechanical analysis. We encourage our patients to contact their insurance company and determine the level of coverage provided for their prescription footwear and foot orthotics.
At Kinetic Health, adult orthotics cost approximately $395. This cost does not include any additional charges for any special modification of the orthotics such as metatarsal pads, heel wells, heel cups, or posting.
Note: Payment for orthotics are due at the time of initial appointment and includes biomechanical analysis and foam impression.
