Foot specialists can now create custom orthotics on site in just one hour using a process from Riecken's Orthotic Laboratory in Evansville, Indiana. The Shoe and Foot Interfacing Orthosis (SAFIO) process, which uses the patient's foot as its model, eliminates the need for foot forms, plaster work and delivery delays and allows the patient to walk out of the office with a pair of custom inlays. Riecken can also do the work in-house, if desired.
A one-day class is offered each month to eight foot-care specialists. The $200 class fee will be credited toward the cost of a full SAFIO system, if one is purchased.
