Custom Made Orthotic NYC

Our Orthotic Services

At the US Orthotic Center, the owner Jeffrey S. Rich, a Board board-certified pedorthist, and Merridy J Lithgow, a DPM registered in Australia, use a new and proprietary method that combines old-school Orthotic artisanship with new digital technology. During the Covid pandemic, he sought out a way to reinvent the orthotic making process and has spent 3 years and hundreds of hours learning, reprogramming software, and inventing a semi-weight-bearing suspension foot scanning system. Ultimately, he mastered and perfected the process while combining it with the knowledge accumulated over the last 46 years. Using the same materials and with the help of a high-speed foot scanner, computer, and CNC machine, he created a unique and superior orthotic like no other.

Functional orthotics are designed to control abnormal motion of the foot. Those types of orthotics help to treat foot pain caused by the abnormal motion condition.

It provides unique control for our athletic patients.

Yet, when the whole foot is in contact with the ground, the orthotics is very rigid and controlling.
