Update to Quick script Arch height
We have added an Update to Quick script Arch height. This is to make it easier for you guys to know what you’re going to receive back. When scanning it is very hard to predict the arch height of a person. Especially when scanning non-weight bearing. Due to this putting down a % of their arch heigh for the arch fill most of the time is like throwing a random figure out. How are you to know what number will be produced if you don’t know the number your starting with? Scanning semi weight-bearing is much more accurate to anticipate the outcome height but not many people are currently doing that.
So what arch mm should I pick and what shell mm?
- 16mm – This is a low arch profile. Picture a foot with an arch height between flat and regular. That’s the height it will come out at. A shell around 4mm would make this semi-flexible at a men US9 shoe size
- 18mm – Picture a pretty regular arch when weight-bearing. This is the height of a regular arch height. A shell around 3.5mm would make this semi-flexible at a men US9 shoe size
- 21mm – This is the high of a person’s foot that is a mild cavus when weight-bearing. A shell around 3mm would make this semi-flexible at a men US9 shoe size
- 24mm – This is about the regular arched height foot when they are semi weight-bearing. This would be the height of a high cavus foot when weight-bearing. A shell around 2.5mm would make this semi-flexible at a men US9 shoe size
- 26mm+ – This generally would be pushing a person’s arch height up. This could be used for a super high cavus foot or a podiatrist wanting a shell with a very high arch. A shell around 2mm would make this semi-flexible at a men US9 shoe size
You can still order via % fill
You can still order via % fill on our full custom order prescription for those confident enough too. We won’t be checking over your arch height prescriptions with you as often due to these changes. If you ever have a question though then please ask. If you are not sure and want help, please provide weight-bearing images of your patients’ feet from the rear and another so that their arch heigh is visible. These are easily added for those people using our app.
