They assess the individual's foot anatomy, biomechanics, and specific needs to create customized orthotics that address their unique requirements.
Accommodative orthotics are different from functional orthotics, which are primarily aimed at correcting foot mechanics and controlling abnormal motion. Instead, accommodative orthotics focus on providing cushioning, redistributing pressure, and accommodating structural abnormalities or sensitive areas of the foot.
The materials used in accommodative orthotics are often softer and more flexible compared to functional orthotics. They may incorporate cushioning materials to provide shock absorption and enhance comfort. The orthotics are designed to fit into regular shoes and can be easily transferred between different pairs.
