Orthotics Production

Orthotics Production – on the SAME day as the assessment

Sub-4 have made a number of innovation in clinical biomechanics and won a number of innovation awards:

  • 2004 Sentinel Start-up Business of the Year
  • 2004 Sentinel Innovation Business of the Year
  • 2005 City of Stoke-on-Trent Innovation Business of the Year

One of our innovation called the Orthotics Prescription Builder (OPB) Kit, which allows practitioners to prescribe orthotics without a POP cast or impression box.

Sub-4 practitioners use this system to prescribe their clients orthotics, allowing the Sub-4 lab (NEW manufacturing facility) to hand make the orthotics on the same day as the assessment, so that you walk out with the orthotics after the consultation.

This allow you to start your treatment immediately, reducing pain and improving performance on the day in most cases. Many of our customers come from all over the UK and other countries, so the fact that we make your orthotics on the same means that you do not need to make a return visit in the day that follow, unlike other practitioners.

Sub-4 Health is the only facility in the UK that makes bespoke orthotics on the same day as the assessment.

We are very proud of this fact.

 

Orthotics Services

We offer a range of services to support our orthotics practitioners:

Prescription hotline

At Sub-4 we want to be able to offer practitioners full support and peace of mind when it comes to prescription writing.

One of Sub-4’s podiatrists will be on hand to give you information or advice you require in writing your prescription.

Based on many years experience and thousands of biomechanical assessments this back up service proves invaluable for guidance or confirmation for practitioners before submitting final prescription to the lab.

Please call 01782 551698 and ask to speak to on of our podiatrists.

Alternatively email your enquiries using our contact form – all emails will be responded to

within 24 hours.

Marketing Support

As your biomechanics partner, Sub-4 want to offer assistance in helping you to promote your practice, helping you to create a greater awareness to your patients of your practice and the benefits of biomechanics!
1) Branded Orthoses

More and more practitioners are now prescribing orthotics with their clinic name on.

This simple and effective procedure means your clinics brand is has more exposure, with patients always reminded of your service. In our experience they are then regularly prompted to recommend your services to friends, family and colleagues who may also see this branding from time to time i.e. at the Golf club, tennis club etc.

The process could not be simpler:

  • Send us a 600 DPI Image and we will do the rest
  • Costs are a one off payment of £40.00 (To cover cost of engraving plate.)
  • our logo will then be included on all future orthoses.

Call or email us now for more details!
2) Sub-4 Posters

We are always pleased to supply customers with copies of our laminated posters which are ideal for clinic walls and waiting rooms or alternatively for local referral centres i.e. GP’s practices, golf clubs, rugby clubs etc. Again we are happy to incorporate you clinic logo and your contact details.
