Footmaxx Orthotic System
Suman Mtn. Chiropractic utilizes the latest technology in gait analysis to help analyze and diagnose gait-related conditions (gait describes the way a person walks). This information can help build a custom foot orthotic to correct many biomechanical problems. Orthotics are custom-made insoles worn in any type of shoe and they correct the way a patient walks. If a patient is walking incorrectly, their entire body can be out of alignment causing all types of problems including foot, ankle, knee, hip, and lower back pain. A 5-minute gait and pressure analysis test will tell you if you are a candidate for orthotics. Orthotics are covered by most insurance plans because insurance companies know the value of orthotic therapy in the prevention and treatment of many conditions that can lend to short-term or even long-term disability claims.

Why the Footmaxx Orthotic System is Better.
The Footmaxx System offers the only means by which to assess a patient's gait and fabricate a custom orthotic device using computerized, dynamic, weight-bearing data instead of a static, non-weight bearing mold of the shape of the foot. This is key to making truly efficacious orthotics because it's not the shape of the foot that causes the problem; it's how the foot functions while bearing weight.
When digitized patient scan data is received at the Footmaxx manufacturing facility, a detailed Gait Analysis and Pressure Report containing diagnostic information is generated. This report becomes part of the permanent patient file as well as supporting documentation for government and insurance claims.
Truly computerized weight bearing, dynamic gait analysis leading to a prescription foot orthotic is finally here! Footmaxx prescription foot orthotics are custom crafted. No negative foot molds are required - instead, digitized gait and pressure data is sent to the lab via modem. Footmaxx semi-rigid prescription foot orthotics have revolutionized the way both clinicians and patients evaluate foot orthotics. Simply walking a patient across a Footmaxx forceplate does this. The entire gait and pressure test takes only minutes, and offers the most consistent and accurate modality for manufacturing custom orthotics.
Footmaxx is a young, dynamic Canadian company offering the only truly computerized system for fabricating prescription foot orthotics. In less than two years, we have become the largest supplier of orthotics in Canada and we are proud to say that 29 of 30 Major League Baseball teams and 13 National Football League teams wear our product.
