Foot care innovation
Shoetech has been leading the way in foot care technology for many years. Since 1991 the Shoetech clinic has used neurological disorder dynamic in shoe computerised under the foot plantar pressure evaluation systems in order to improve assessment and orthotic services. This technology driven diagnostic tool is complemented with the use of flexible non-rigid foot orthoses. In 2005 Shoetech were the first to introduce Sensometoric orthoses as a way to improve foot function, utilizing the body’s own proprioceptive system.
