    Recommended Custom Orthotics suppliers? 17th May 17 at 11:22 AM
    Hi, I'm diagnosed with some biomechanical imperfections which require orthotics.

    I used to get NHS orthotics which, whilst not perfect, were adequate for my needs. The NHS said I'm allowed one pair/year, which is OK as I can continue using old ones which last a bit longer. Anyway, after my last experience with the NHS trying to get a fitting for my orthotics, the service was so poor and incomplete, I've realised it's simply not worth relying on them to fix my problem and so I've decided to look elsewhere.

    Can anyone recommend a supplier for custom orthotics? Some of the prices I've come across are ridiculous but obviously I'll have to spend a bit extra on the problem. Cheers.

    You would normally need to be scanned for bespoke orthotics - perhaps contact a few local podiatrists and see what they quote...
