COVID 19 Update: Orthotic facilities are included in the essential services category as stated by the Ontario Government. This means DKOS is open (by appointment) and seeing clients for in-person assessments for custom made orthotics. We have enhanced safety measures in place to ensure the safety of all those involved. Contact us to schedule your Custom Orthotics Assessment.
Why a sport-specific orthotic?
During running and sport, your foot behaves like a spring. It absorbs the force of you landing and then springs back to return energy into your stride or movement. An orthotic designed specifically for sport or activity needs to be designed to reflect this type of movement. If an orthotic is made out of a rigid, non-moving piece of plastic, this takes away your foot's natural spring-like ability, and this often results in pain, and a much less efficient movement pattern.
DKOS orthotics are designed with more resins and carbon fibres than most orthotics. The volume, along with the structure of these materials is specific to each orthotic. This allows them to have support and strength, but it also allows them to behave dynamically.
Your foot is designed to work like a spring, and our orthotics are designed to work with your foot, not change it. This means it's more comfortable, and is more effective when worn for performance.
Our orthotics are customized to your sport or activity, your biomechanics, your movement patterns, the strength of your muscles, the footwear you use, along with many other factors. No two orthotics are created the same.
