Moldable orthotic

Posted by Noreen H on 8/11/02 at 12:35 (092205)

I read about an orthotic on this site that you put in the oven to soften and then mold to your foot. There were'nt any reviews as it was listed as a new product. I'm wondering if anyone has tried this yet. The concept sounds good. Like many of you I've tried numerous OTC and custom made orthotics and they haven't been too helpful.

The purpose of an orthotic is to change foot function. The position you hold your foot in when molding the orthotic to your foot will significantly change how the orthotic works.
