Canadian Certified Pedorthists - C. Ped (C) - are trained in the assessment and functionality of the lower limbs.  A C.

What can you expect during an assessment?

A typical pedorthic assessment takes approximately 45-60 minutes.  It is a hands-on examination of the foot and lower limb, followed by a gait analysis to assess the foot and leg biomechanics.  Following the assessment, we develop a custom orthotic device to help fit your needs based on the results of the assessment.  We may also review shoe fit and footwear that would be more suitable for your daily lifestyle.
