At EC Orthotics, we have a proprietary direct milled, Unitized Functional Orthotic (UFO) that combines function, versatility and comfort. It is superior to other types of orthotics because of the following reasons:
1) Accuracy. Our lab uses a Hass milling machine which is the same milling machines that makes Boeing Aircraft Parts. There is nothing more accurate than this. Other labs may try and copy our direct milled product but if it has not satisfied your needs, it is likely the milling machine was designed to build furniture.
2) Low Bulk. Most popular with women because bulky orthotics are the main reason for non-compliance, especially in women's lower profile footwear. However, this product can be custom made for both men and women.
3) Durability. Nothing lasts longer- period. The shell of this orthotic has a lifetime guarantee against breakage and the fact that there is no topcover negates any problems with wear and tear unlike other conventional orthotics
4) Aesthetics. While simple in its appearance, the UFO orthotic has the look of a high-tech orthotic made with 1 shell grinded to perfection, and beveled angles to maximize comfort. Its ergonomic design, combined with its smooth, polished look, makes it stand out compared to standard orthotics. After all, placing layers of accommodations and extensions not only reduces the biomechanical functionality of an orthotic, it increases the chances of future problems with the therapeutic effectiveness of the device.
If you are in the market for a simple sleek orthotic design and a high tech aircraft manufacturing production process, we have a product that is thin, effective and durable. Most importantly, when choosing a custom made orthotic, they are truly custom made so we can make them any style, shape or colour but our UFO orthotics stand out from the competition.
