Customizable Off-the-Shelf Orthotics

Customizable solutions to fit your patients’ needs.

FOR OVER 30 YEARS, OUR PRODUCTS HAVE RECEIVED HIGH ACCLAIM FROM ORTHOPEDIC SURGEONS, PODIATRISTS, PHYSICAL THERAPISTS AND ATHLETIC TRAINERS.

At Wrymark, we recognize the need for customizable orthotics to treat various pathologies more effectively.  To meet those needs, we offer 1st Step Orthotics which can be customized by the care provider to the specific needs of the patients’ problem, providing superior comfort and relief.

Orthotic Benefits

  • Antimicrobial/Anti-Shear Nylon Top Cover
  • 1st Step and Soft Step orthotics are manufactured using Poron®, the best known material for shock absorbency.
  • The heel cup provides excellent fat pad containment and stability to the calcaneous, helping to maintain the lower kinetic chain in its neutral position.
  • Offers unique flex-to-firm support which allows normal foot function while decelerating excessive and undesirable motion.

Pathologies Treated

1st Step provides excellent relief from a variety of foot pathologies and related maladies:

  • Plantar Fascitis
  • Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome
  • Metarsalgia
  • Shin Splints
  • Stress Fractures
  • Plantar Pressures (Blisters, Callouses, etc.)
  • Ankle Sprains
Functional Support For Proper Alignment

Dynamic Alignment

The anatomical design of 1st Step Achieves Dynamic Alignment™.  Dynamic Alignment™ is achieved when the joints are properly aligned during gait, with the foot, ankle, knee and hip functioning together in the most optimal position.

1st Step orthotics are designed to support the medial longitudinal arch and to control the entire foot while it changes function throughout the gait cycle.
