The custom system is designed to benefit the patient through the doctor's knowledge and experience. Using the Custom System, an orthotic may be ordered in any length, form, etc... This allows for ordering the best design and materials to accurately fit and control the patient's foot. System I, traditionally podiatric type orthotics, involves a variety from soft to semi-flexible to rigid orthotics. These orthotics can be made from any 2-inch foam impression or from plaster casts. Orthotics can be posted extrinsically or intrinsically according to the prescription.
