Silicone orthoses: orthoplasty


Ortoplasty: our silicone orthoses

Orthoplasty is the branch of podiatry that aims to design and manufacture anatomical and customized orthotic appliances created by hand.

These orthoses are made of silicone and can be applied for different purposes.


The primary purpose of all silicones is the protective one: by reducing digital paramorphism and trying to rebalance forces and pressures, we try to obtain the remission of pain and the reduction of the inflammatory manifestation, to finally arrive at an improvement in breech function. In addition to protecting the skin tissue, orthosis also preserves the joints as much as possible.

This type of silicone can be made for any type of person.


Corrective silicones are the most effective alternative to surgery, if it is not possible to operate or if the patient himself does not want to undergo the surgery.
They are therefore not applicable to all people: it will be the podiatrist who, through the movements of the skeletal segments and joints, will evaluate any possible correction, showing the advantages that can be gained from them even before the production of the medical device.


Discharged silicones are effective in cases where it is necessary to unload an area of ​​hyper-load, or subject to stress and/or friction by the shoe. Indirectly, the relief orthosis also has a corrective function, albeit very light, as it limits biomechanical dysmorphism.
