Formthotics™ are a total contact foot orthotic which are fitted to the patient's foot after thermoforming the device. They are made from Formax™, a high grade proprietary thermoformable polyolefin 'closed cell' foam. With greater mouldability than other foams, it will hold a molded shape longer, better and more accurately than other orthotic devices. As a total contact foot orthotic, Formthotics™ provide the best possible neuromotor facilitation and biomechanical control.
