O-T-C Footwear Supports

Over-the-counter or off-the-shelf orthoses are suitable when the foot problems don't warrant custom-made devices or cost is of a concern.

Over-the-counter or off-the-shelf orthoses

Currently I'm carrying 3 types in stock retailing between $30-50 price range.

Two are full-length kinds in adult sizing in varying thickness and can be modified at extra cost. The ½-length ones are in adult sizing, are modifiable, and flexible enough to work in different heel heights. A few other brands can be ordered in.
In regards to small children's sizing these can be ordered in as well."

As written in the PAC website "Over-the-counter foot orthotics can be effectively used as a temporary solution for children who are rapidly growing or as a 'first' step for any age to provide insight into how a patient will initially respond to a foot orthotic before receiving a more corrective support with a custom-made foot orthotic," it explains. "However the one-size-fits-all adage of most over-the-counter foot orthotics can prove detrimental to a patient who requires specific support or material only found in a custom-made foot orthotic."
