PLANTAR ORTHOSES CRYOS

A plantar orthosis is a custom-designed device that fits into the shoe to help bring the foot back into proper alignment and thus alleviate postural disorientation. It effectively treats foot pain and promotes optimal postural alignment. It can also be used for preventive purposes in the development of certain conditions (flat feet, hallux valgus, etc.)

The custom-made foot orthosis can be prescribed by a podiatrist or a doctor, after an assessment of the condition and the elaboration of an accurate diagnosis. Custom-made foot orthoses prescribed by a podiatrist are made from footprints and should not be confused with the prefabricated ones found in some shops.

These orthotics manufactured in Quebec offer many advantages: they can be inserted in almost all types of shoes, which promotes their integration into everyone’s lifestyle, without compromising results and comfort.

In addition, the CRYOS plantar orthosis is a functional / dynamic orthosis, which means it does not block the natural movement of the foot and does not make it 'lazy'. On the contrary, this type of orthosis guides the movement of the foot in order to maximize its effectiveness and promotes a strengthening of the stabilizing muscles of the foot. This type of orthosis is particularly suitable for active people and athletes.

CRYOVIZION, AN IMAGING POSTURAL ANALYSIS SYSTEM

CRYOS podiatric orthoses are produced based on the prescription of the podiatrist following a complete biomechanical examination and a postural analysis that is completed with Cryovizion technology.

The device provides the practitioner with tangible data to effectively assess the patient's initial condition as well as its evolution during treatment.

This technology ensures a concrete and personalized follow-up in order to achieve the therapeutic goals that have been set.

Cryovizion is a non-invasive imaging system that highlights the posture imbalance, often related to biomechanical misalignment of the feet.

PLANTARY ORTHOSIS IN CHILDREN

Children can be evaluated from their very first steps. When a child is quickly looked after, it is possible that the customary wearing of a plantar orthosis can offer a permanent bone correction, thus justifying the removal of the orthosis at the end of the child’s growth.

It is therefore recommended to have the child examined at an early age in order to ensure optimal development and growth, thus preventing complications that may occur in adulthood.
