When searching for an orthotics supplier, Acor is dedicated to offering the right shape for every situation. Our prefabricated orthotics are available in either a biomechanical (full posterior coverage) orthotic or a hybrid-biomechanical coverage orthotic. The latter uses different material combinations to offer degrees of support and cushioning to targeted areas of the foot.
Biomechanical: Covers the entire base of the foot and unlike flat inlays supports the arch offering a comfortable fit.
Hybrid-Biomechanical: Designed to offer cushion where the foot needs it most while supporting the arch. Combinations of materials with differing densities are utilized to accomplish this.
Materials: Materials come in different layers and qualities. Laminations (adding more than one layer of material) take a characteristic, which is poor in one material, and offset that characteristic with another material, which adds strength to the orthotics.
Sizes: All sizes are designated in U.S. standard women's and men's sizes.
Weight Range: A person's weight can alter the effectiveness of orthotic materials and shapes. For this reason, Acor has listed a suggested weight range for all adult-sized orthotics.
Activities: This is a list of potential activities the practitioner can use in the determination of an orthotic. It further helps to pinpoint the right orthotic for the patient.
Item Number: Describes the item number of the orthoses followed by the shape of the orthotic in either a full foot bed (L), covering the entire base of the foot, or a short foot bed (S), which extends from the heel to just behind the metatarsals.
Cushion: Determines the amount of cushioning that the prefabricated orthotics materials offer to the patient. A low number reflects a superior amount of shock absorption, while a higher number indicates a greater amount of support.
|Examples of shock ratings per material:|
|1- P-Cell®||Ultra Cushioning|
|3- Microcel Puff®||Equal Cushioning and Support|
|4- FM™||Strong Support|
|5- Plastic||Rigid Support|
Support: Signifies how well our prefabricated orthotics materials will retain form after extended use. A low number indicates the materials will conform to the foot. A high number reflects a material will retain its' shape.
|1- Ultra-conforming||Minimal Activity|
|2- Conforming||Light Activity|
|3- Conforming/Rigid||Moderate Activity|
|4- Firm Orthotic||High Activity|
