Orthotic Technologies

Paromed Laser Foot Scanner

At Sunshine Coast Orthotics & Podiatry, we use a highly accurate and efficient Paromed 3D laser foot scanner for plantar foot scanning…no more wasted time or mess from a plaster cast impression of the foot.

Every contour of your foot will be captured as laser scanning is far more accurate.

We can scan your foot under no load, partial load or full weight bearing load to best capture the function of your foot to ensure the best outcomes with your orthotics.

Paromed Full Length Custom Orthotics

The next step of creating your custom orthotics is analysis and design of your custom orthotics.

The podiatrist who has performed your treatment and diagnosis is the same person to design your custom full length EVA orthotics.

Sunshine Coast Orthotics & Podiatry do not send your orthotics to be modelled and made by a third party.

By using one of the best scanning, modelling and milling CADCAM orthotic systems in the world, we are able to create some of the best foot orthotics in the world. We back every foot orthotic with an unconditional guarantee…we stand behind our clinical skills and will continue to work with you if you have any concerns at all regarding your orthotics.

Foot Pressure Measurement

We utilise several different pressure measurement diagnostic tools depending on your condition. These include a Parograph pressure measurement plate and a Parotec Dynamic In-Shoe Pressure Measurement System.

Foot pressure measurement (plantar foot pressures) is the gold standard for changing foot function. Deflecting forces from painful bunions or Heels to protecting an ulcerated wound, we are able to diagnose, measure and get the best result.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a doctor’s recommendation to see a podiatrist?

Do I need to wear anything specific for my orthotics appointments?

  • As with any appointment you make for your health, we’d always recommend you wear something comfortable and breathable for your appointment with us.
  • Our Paromed 3D laser foot scanner will require you to remove your socks for your scan, so this is something worth considering when you choose the outfit you’re going to wear.

Do I need the newest technologies for my feet?

  • As podiatrists and orthotics experts at the forefront of new technologies and treatments, we think it’s important to stay ahead of the curve.
  • That’s why we use the best and latest technology for everyone that comes to us, allowing us to ensure an excellent quality of treatment and consistent results that speak for themselves. Using the best technology on offer helps us to achieve that.

Does Paromed 3D laser foot scanner hurt?

  • Our 3D laser foot scanner does not hurt at all and can quickly and precisely measure every contour of each foot with exceptional accuracy in a very short amount of time. We will scan your foot in a range of different functions to get the most clarity when it comes to your results and when it comes to the suggested orthotics treatment for your feet.

Are your treatments outsourced?

  • Our in-house team of experts don’t outsource any of our care and treatment plans unless there’s a need for you to see a different doctor following our diagnosis or analysis of your feet. In most cases, all of your treatments will be carried out by our friendly team, including orthotics creation, foot pressure treatments and more.

Can you design custom orthotics for me?

  • Once you’ve had an appointment with our expert specialists, we can then go through designing and creating custom orthotics in-house for you. Our expert team does all the work to ensure the highest possible standard results for a tailored fit and ultimate comfort for as long as they are needed.

  • If you’re not happy with your orthotics’ fit, our team is always happy to help you and work with you to create something comfortable and practical.
  • In some cases, there can be an adjustment period where your orthotics don’t feel right. But we do encourage you to make an appointment, and we’d be happy to talk it through with you in person.
