Overview of Orthotics
Orthotics are orthopedic devices that are used to alter or modify foot function and are designed to treat, adjust, and support various biomechanical foot disorders. The closed cell construction of ICB Orthotics ensures they will resist compression and distortion, and have a longer life span. It is a simple, straightforward process for the Practitioner to mould and custom fit the ICB Orthotic to effectively treat specific conditions.
ICB’s wide orthotic range ensures there is an orthotic to suit every patient’s needs. ICB Orthotics are available in a range of styles, ensuring there is an orthotic to fit almost any style of footwear. ICB’s Soft, Mid and Firm density Orthotics incorporate a Taibrelle cover* on the dorsal surface, for added comfort.

Fitting Orthotics into Shoes
Almost every shoe size, style and design varies slightly. To accommodate for these differences ICB Full Length Orthotics can be
trimmed to ensure a good fit. Before trimming, remove the manufacturer insoles and use them as a template to trim around the distal edges of the orthotic with scissors.
Heat Moulding to a Plaster Cast
Using ICB Orthotic to mould to a plaster cast is also quick and easy.
Being made of 100% EVA ICB Orthotics can save time over using sheet EVA, by reducing the amount of grinding and time required to
create the desired orthotic shape. Simply place the heated orthotic onto the plaster cast and use a vacuum former to mould into shape. ICB Orthotics can then be ground using a bench grinder, dremel or nail drill.
