Some modern orthotic shells are made from long lasting materials and are designed to last a good number of years. However, the top covering tends to take a bit of a beating and can often need replaced a number of times during the life of the devices.
We hold a stock of EVA, Poron and top covering materials like leatherette and suedette to allow you to have your orthotic devices re-covered and in some cases upgraded by using shock absorbing polymers like Astro and PX1.
Refurbishing orthotics is a very economical choice where the shell is still viable and your orthotic prescription has not changed. The cost is generally about half the price of a replacement pair.
Sometimes, shells can even be re-moulded if only a minor prescription adjustment is required. We will always check this before a refurb but in general, if the orthotics are doing their job we will not change the structure of the shell.
Can we refurb orthotics made elsewhere?
Yes. As long as the shell of the device is stable and you do not need a new prescription, we can recover devices made by most companies.
