HOW DO I FIT THESE ORTHOTICS TO MY PATIENTS?
You can refer them directly to us, or Contact Kevin if you are interested in fitting these orthotics to your patients through your office or practice. We provide full service and we will do the fittings for you by fax or mail, or you can be trained to select the proper fitting.
The Brannock Device is the most common method of measuring feet for shoe sizing. It is an interesting tool, but is not accurate for healthy shoe sizing. In MOST cases The Brannock Device will suggest a shoe size that is too small and that restricts the toes in an unhealthy way.
Large sizes in women’s shoes can be hard to find locally. You can refer your patients to Kevin’s Links page which has a list of sources.
Many of your patients could benefit from trying different socks than what they are currently using. Kevin’s Links also includes links to sock manufacturers and discount warehouses that stock high quality socks.
