Orthotic fitting lady

With only three months left of this year, now is the time make sure you’re making the most of your private health insurance benefits for your orthotics before the new year arrives.

Did you know that in most cases, you can claim a new pair of orthotics from your private health fund every year?

Your orthotics are charged to your health fund with often just a LOW gap left for you to pay.

Claiming your new pair of orthotics is simple, just follow these basic steps:

  1. Call your My FootDr clinic and ask for a LOW GAP* orthotic assessment (see terms and conditions below to see if you qualify).

  2. We’ll perform a full biomechanical assessment and 3D foot scan of your feet.

Our qualified Podiatrists will assess you and take some specific biomechanical measurements and 3D laser scans of your feet during your biomechanical examination and gait analysis. This process will take approximately 20 minutes and allows us to determine your orthotic prescription.

  1. We design and manufacture your custom-made orthotics.

Your Podiatrist will fill in your custom orthotic prescription form and send to our orthotic laboratory, along with your 3D laser foot scans. Your orthotics will either be precision-milled or 3D printed, depending on what material has been prescribed to be best for your feet.

  1. Your new orthotics are fitted to your feet and footwear.

Your custom-made orthotics will be fitted to your shoes in as little as 7-10 days following your prescription.

To book an appointment call 1800FOOTDR or book online.

 

Is This Your First Pair Of Orthotics?

If you’ve never visited a My FootDr centre or previously had orthotics, your first step is to book an appointment with our team at your local clinic. We’ll get to know your history, the problems or pains you’re experiencing, your goals, and whether orthotics are right for you. From there, if you are likely to benefit from orthotic therapy, we’ll complete your orthotic assessment and 3D scans, after which you’ll be eligible for LOW gap assessments for subsequent pairs.
