INNOVATION FOR THE FOOT ORTHOTIC INDUSTRY
Our sole purpose is to help keep people moving. We do so by combining innovative 3D design software and manufacturing technology with biomechanical expertise to provide you with Podfo, one of the most advanced custom orthotics available.
Initially developed by Peacocks Medical Group and in consultation with orthotists, podiatrists and biomechanical experts from around the globe, Podfo was designed to enhance the treatment outcome for your patients, improving both the accuracy of orthotic prescription and patient compliance through increased comfort and functionality.
“We are committed to continuing to evolve our product and services. Our product development team have collaborated on projects such as A-Footprint and E-Porthos and work closely with our clinical advisory consultants to ensure we provide leading-edge orthotic solutions.”
Elaine Hall, Managing Director
It is an award winning innovation that has been recognised by an EEF Future Manufacturing Award in 2014 and the Bright Ideas in Health Award in 2015.
MULTIPLE PRESCRIPTIVE POSSIBLITIES
Depending upon the needs of your patient, some traditional orthoses can be too bulky and uncomfortable for your patient to wear. As a result, you may find yourself compromising their treatment solution to accommodate the orthotic fit.
Thanks to our 3D technology, you can now finely tune Podfo to the needs of your patient without compromising the structural integrity or the prescriptive functionality of the orthotic. Your prescription for your patient’s treatment can be as straightforward or as complex as you require.
You provide us with an orthotic prescription and impressions of your patient’s feet, and we combine this information to design and manufacture Podfo, a seamless bespoke orthotic that is up to 50% lighter than some other traditional orthotics.
