YOUR HEALTH IS OUR PRIORITY:
During the continued COVID-19 pandemic, DKOS is offering minimal contact orthotic assessments and fittings in addition to our in-person assessments.

Explosive leg power is one of the key components in developing an efficient skating stride. If your body's ability to properly harness that burst of power is compromised, it can greatly affect performance, and increase your risk of injury.
Proper foot mechanics are essential in distributing power from your legs more evenly, giving you increased edge control and stability on skates.
Works with your body
GET MORE POWER TO the ice
A skate orthotic will control your foot and ankle, helping to keep them in a neutral position. This lets the forces from your legs travel down through your foot, and on to your skate more efficiently. If your feet aren't aligned, this takes away your body's ability to effectively control skate edges. Using orthotic inserts lets your foot work with your skate, improving your ability to effectively control directional changes and transfer power to your skates.
Skate SPECIFIC CUSTOMIZATIONS
Custom skate orthotics are specially made to remain thin, and align your foot and skate during acceleration and change-of-direction phases.
