Foot Mechanic Orthotics-Making a Difference

Andrew Scott of Foot Mechanic Orthotics in Adelaide provides custom-fit shoes catering to people with a disability and a variety of foot conditions for comfort, support, and pain relief.

The shoes, made in Germany, draw on the skills of orthopaedic specialists, sports physicians, biomechanics and orthopaedic footwear technicians.


Why Foot Mechanic Orthotics ?

Foot Mechanic Orthotics provides specialised knowledge of shoes for specific conditions and Mr Scott says the shoes can help anyone with foot pain including Rheumatoid arthritis, Osteoarthritis, and Diabetes.

“The shoes have a wide toe box and helps those with diabetes because of the depth in the shoes, especially when one considers how those with diabetes can suffer a lot of ulcers. There are also shoes to help with aches and ligament damage,” Mr Scott said.

“The high-ankle boots and shoes are really strong and if a patient has a foot deformity, or leans inwards, these shoes support the ankle and stop the feet from rolling in,” he said.

“They also help with easing aches and providing support for ligament damage. What we insert into the shoes provides so much support. These are very strong shoes. We work with anyone from aches and pains to foot deformities.

“We also understand that the underlying problem may not always be located around the area of the body that develops the pain or symptoms. In some cases, the problem may lie in a number of areas, such as poor posture, leg length discrepancies, tight or poorly toned muscles.

“We will assess you to find the best shoes to support your daily needs,” Mr. Scott said.
