 The Foot Alignment System is a patented weight bearing casting system which allows the shape of the orthotic to be moulded while the patient is standing in their corrected stance.Normally, to make an orthotic, plaster bandage is wrapped around the foot while the patient is sitting or lying down on their back or stomach. The foot is then held in its neutral position so it lines up with the rest of the leg. The cast is then balanced, poured and modified by adding plaster to the positive cast in an attempt to replicate what the patient’s foot would look like in a Corrected Weight Bearing Position, which is a calculated guess at best.
