Yes, Your Well-Worn Custom Orthotics Can Be Refurbished.
When you refurbish orthotics, you give new life to a well-worn pair of custom orthotics. Enjoy the benefits of a new pair while being budget-friendly.
Here are some telltale signs that your custom orthotics need to refurbished.
- Is the top cover pulling away from the shell? Or, has it completely pulled away from the shell?
- Does the top cover have cracks, holes or signs of significant wear?
- Is the heel posting worn down or worn away?
What is involved in refurbishing custom orthotics?
When your orthotics arrive, we remove all the worn soft components. This includes things like the top cover and padding. If needed, we will remove posting material. The original plate is cleaned up. We add new padding, accommodations, and a new top cover. If the arch reinforcement and/or posting is worn, we will replace that too. Your refurbished orthotics will be like new and may require a breaking in period, especially if you have not worn them in a few years.
Should I refurbish my custom orthotics that have not been worn in years?
Your custom orthotics were handcrafted for you. Certain medical conditions like diabetes, lower extremity injuries or surgeries, pregnancy, and changes in weight are just a few of the reasons your custom orthotics may need some modifications. We recommend having your prescriber confirm that the prescription is appropriate for your needs.
