Your feet are literally the foundation for proper posture. Every day they are subjected to an enormous amount of pressure and strain, especially while running or walking.
Prevent rather than cure.
Do you have a prescription from a doctor or specialist? Then we will make quality orthotics for you.
You can also come to us without a prescription. If you’re not sure if you need orthotics, we’ll check with you. Custom orthotics can provide a solution to a variety of complaints. However, there is no list of complaints that specifically indicate a need for orthotics. Whether or not you will benefit from this additional foot support must be considered individually.

Our method and offerings
Cost and reimbursement
The price of your orthotics depends on the type of orthotic:
- D3D (EVA orthotic): €129.
- Phits (3D printed): €169.
Because orthotics are essential for optimal injury prevention, you are entitled to a partial refund on your orthotics manufactured by podiatrists.
- Are you affiliated with Helan (the former Partena and Independent Health Insurance Fund)? Then you enjoy a refund of up to €50 per pair of soles per year.
- Are you affiliated with the Liberal Mutual? Then you are entitled to a refund of €30 per pair of soles every two years.
Always inquire about the correct, current conditions with your health insurance company in advance.
Manufacture and service after purchase
After we accurately measure your foot profile, we get to work on your custom orthotics. For both the D3D orthotics and Phits 3D orthotics, we count about 2 to 3 weeks to finish them.
New orthotics are best walked in gradually so your feet can get used to the new support. After a 2 to 4 week run-in period, do the soles still not feel 100% right? No problem! Our podiatrists are still on hand to further adjust orthotics as needed. Make another appointment and we’ll review the problem.
Make your appointment online
To accurately measure and custom-make your orthotics, a 1-on-1 consultation is key. Therefore, our podiatrists always work by appointment (+/- 30min).
Do you already have orthotics? If so, be sure to bring those along with your current shoes in which you will wear the orthotics.
Do you still need new shoes? If so, it is best to wait to purchase these until your orthotics are ready.
